“Functional Training Zone (FTZ) allows students to receive firsthand knowledge and experience from instructors who are all experts in their field. FTZ utilizes a team of motivated and knowledgeable members to provide an educational experience unlike any I have seen before. Since the instructors are all active in their fields, they retain all the benefits of being on the front lines of development. They are able to access their networking contacts to ensure that students of FTZ are introduced to people who can assist and mentor them throughout their personnel and professional development.”
When I first met Arnaldo, I was working as a tier 1 associate at Amazon wondering which direction to take. Arnaldo showed me the growing opportunity in the field of becoming a security professional. Since then, I went from a regular tier 1 associate to a level 4 Loss Prevention Specialist and currently working on obtaining the CAPM and ASIS APP certifications.
As an educator of over 20 years, I’ve noticed the missing link in many educational programs has been the opportunity for students to get real exposure to practical experiences in the physical work arena. FTZ seeks to fill that void by not only connecting students with experienced professionals in a variety of fields, but also to create natural interactive opportunities for Q & A, networking, and clarity around career paths & goals.
“Wish I had FTZ when I was younger! It’s a great starting point for anyone looking at a career field but not knowing where to begin. Why waste time and money doing something you don’t love when you could be ahead of the game!”

FTZ is a very helpful tool for exposing the younger generation to careers and paths that aren’t in the spotlight. There are so many areas that don’t get the same attention or recognition because nobody really knows about them or how to get into it. FTZ provides avenues and ways to introduce different careers at an early age. I wish I had something like this when I was younger to open my eyes into other careers. I am happy to established in my career in television and share the knowledge that I’ve gained along the way with FTZ.
