About Us

Welcome! We are glad you want to know more about us.

Our History

Our business was incorporated in 2007 as Presson Consulting, Inc. It is a service-disabled-veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB). Our consultants provide training delivery and training event management services. Usually they do so as defense-industry subcontractors; our students are in the military or federal law enforcement agencies. Word-of-mouth referrals negated the need to actively market that aspect of our business.

We started doing business as North 40 Rescue to better serve the civilian sector—especially search and rescue organizations that deserve the same quality of training we provide to the military.
