As the EOD School’s Learning Standards Officer, he directed curriculum development and the certification of more than 200 high risk instructors and developed an Academic Review Board process that was lauded by Navy Education and Training Command as a “best practice.”

Craig is a qualified master EOD technician and master training specialist. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Excelsior University, suma cum laude. He is a graduate of the Air Force Senior Enlisted Academy and the Naval War College Command Master Chief Course and completed a prestigious KEYSTONE Fellowship at the Joint Forces Staff College.
