Instructor Bio

Prior to his appointment in 2021 as the lead for internal staff development at Survival Systems USA , Christopher Poore served in multiple operational roles at two Survival Systems facilities. Starting in 2016 at Fort Rucker, Alabama, with the Survival Systems program for the US Army, he directly trained thousands of US military aviators in underwater egress and surface-water survival. That experience, combined with his outstanding law enforcement credentials and background, made him an ideal fit for transitioning to the Groton Training Center, where he continues to train thousands—but now from both the civilian and military aviation fields, as well as a significant number of law enforcement professionals. Christopher has conducted instructor and student training around the world and has consulted as a subject matter expert for R&D programs with the PoSSUM and GWO groups involving underwater egress/surface-water survival training and equipment as well as workforce development for both of those entities.
