Meet the instructors
Steve "Pappy" Papenfuhs & Scott Savage
Our F.T.O. instructors are not only highly experienced law enforcement professionals from Northern California but they are also expert instructors. Steve is a former FTO Sergeant with the San Jose Police Department, Scott is a former FTO and Sergeant with the Palo Alto Police Department and now serves with the Santa Clara Police Department and Dom is a former Training Unit Officer with the San Francisco Police Department who also still serves with Santa Clara PD. Each has decades of experience teaching law enforcement officers. They are obsessed with delivering highly engaging courses and they are the reason why our FTO training programs are so different than the typical "Death by Power Point" courses.
