Spotlight on OSDT - Eastern Region - page 1

Five Office of Staff Development and Training instructors work out of the Eastern Region at the Fort Fisher National Guard Training Center. Correctional Training Coordinator Bill Goodman said the site is used as an academy and is the only place in the Eastern Region that can house students overnight.
The training center is on the site of the old Fort Fisher. The ocean has now covered the actual fort, but earthen mounds of old ammunition stockpile sites are near the new buildings owned by the National Guard. The land itself is protected by the Federal Government.

The five instructors teach 160 hours of basic training to a group of students for four weeks. The day we caught up with the group, instructors were teaching unarmed self-defense training.
