    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Specialist Training Authority

    Looks like their website is unobtainable.

    I think that they are doing a name change to the "Specialist Training Academy"

    http://www.specialisttrainingacademy...ome/4582710558

    I suspect that this will probably disappear and Spencer will come up with another online entity offering "certification" and training.

    I hope that anyone who has gone on any training with the Specialist Training Authority has received their training and obtained certification - however dubious it is....

    Watch this space....

    I have no doubt that the Specialist Training <______> will be a rinse and repeat affair.

    I hope OwlMatt wasn't too close to the end of his write-up.

    Specialist Training Authority - Richard Spencer

    I happened to look at the STA page on LinkedIn today:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	LinkedIn.jpg 
Views:	24 
Size:	11.3 KB 
ID:	16022

    Looks like they have closed down. Interesting as they were advertising a course in Manchester in March. I can only assume it didn't happen.

    Hopefully the coin has dropped with Spencer that this line of business will struggle to work - especially when based on what can be best described as "over inflated marketing". Some of the people who have posted on this thread might take a rather more robust view.

    Like a few other people who have contributed to this investigation, I will keep an eye open for Spencer's future business ventures.

    I hope that he manages to put this behind him and (if he chooses to stay in business) create a worthwhile profitable company.

    Did you check to see if the Specialist Training Academy is still up and advertising?

    It is - but the site hasn't been updated for a long while. It's links to the STA (not surprisingly) don't work.

    Scrub that. I just looked and it's still advertising the STA courses.

    Beat me to it. I didn't check the last update time though. Very remiss of me.

    The email address given on the Specialist Training Academy website for enquiries doesn't work. I got a bounce back so I assume that the Specialist Training Academy is also defunct.

    If I can swing a bit of time this afternoon, I'll do another domain sweep.

    Might get nothing with it being so close to the fall of the STA, but he might have another entity waiting the wings.

    Wouldn't surprise me, I hope that Spencer has managed to find ligit work. If not then we might find another dubious company emerging.

    The Bearcat Protection Academy site has gone into lockdown mode. To my knowledge, this is the last site being operated by Richard Spencer.
