Our Philosophy

“Stress inoculation is the key to achieving optimal performance in the field. I believe RBT is the key to achieving useful, realistic stress inoculation”
–Ray DeFrates


The philosophy of Reality Based Training Consulting is to give trainers the understanding, knowledge, and skill to provide their students a safe environment to practice skills learned in the classroom under the stress of realistic scenarios. The “Socratic method” of student lead learning is the keystone to successful understanding by the student, leading to improved performance and officer safety.


The mission of Reality Based Training Consulting is to enhance the performance and professional status of law enforcement, U.S. Military, and private security personnel. Reality Based Training Consulting will provide our clients with the development of a credible Reality Based Training program.
