Craig Pulvirenti Special Forces Liar and Fraud

Craig Pulvirenti Special Forces Liar and Fraud

Craig Pulvirenti we have your records and we know you were never a member of the Special Forces.

Craig Pulvirenti Special Forces liar and fraud, we know you were discharged as a E-5, SGT. Not as a SSG that your linked page stated.

I'm betting every resume you've put out had you serving as a Special Forces soldier..... but you were a 96B and not too intelligent if you thought you'd get away with lying about your real MOS.

Now your name is listed here, forever to serve as an example of what happens when you use our name and reputation for personal and financial gain.

http://critical-training-group.com/instructors/

Craig Pulvirenti began his career in the US Army Special Forces during the 1980s. Craig Served as an 18F (Assistant Operations and Intelligence Sergeant), 10th Group in Germany. After the Army, Craig attended the University of Heidelberg in Germany completing his Bachelor’s Degree.
Craig’s Police career then began in Michigan in 1988 with the Highland Park Public Safety Department as a full time Public Safety Officer (Police / Fire / Medic). Highland Park being a unique city located completely inside the City of Detroit Michigan and due to its size afforded Craig many opportunities to serve in diverse areas of police work.
Craig worked on several Federal Task forces and was assigned to the Tactical Street Enforcement Unit, High Risk Entry Team, Counter Sniper team, Detective Bureau and Narcotics Bureau. This was a time where Craig was involved in numerous Deadly Force Decisions while performing High Risk Entries and High Risk Response calls, making decisions regarding deadly force often, and was involved in several deadly force encounters.
After 6 years, Craig left Highland Park to a suburban police department 2 miles north of Detroit. He began his career in the Roseville Police Department serving for 18 years and with Military time leaving with a full retirement.
While in Roseville, Craig served on the departments SWAT team as a High Risk Entry Team Member and the Senior Counter Sniper, Major Incident Investigative team and was on the Departments Training Staff.
During his tenure on the Roseville Police Department Craig was afforded several Leaves of Absence to travel to Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and Oman to work with the US Departments of Defense Counter Terrorism Special Operations Forces (CTSOF) and US Department of State Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program (ATA) as an instructor, a Team Leader, Section Leader, Deputy Program Manager and Senior Mentor. After retiring from the Roseville Police Department Craig continues his travels, continually updating his training and tactics, with the US State Department ATA and is currently an Independent Contractor performing these duties.
Craig has also been working as an adjunct and Lead Tactical Instructor at the Macomb Community College Criminal Justice Training Center as a certified instructor and curriculum developer. Craig instructs several areas, to include all Firearms, Counter Sniper operations, Defensive Tactics, Dignitary Protection, Instructor Development, SWAT and High Risk Tactical Classes.
Craig has also worked as an adjunct instructor and Curriculum Developer with Oakland Community College and Delta College in the Criminal Justice and Tactical Advanced Police Training areas as well as Wayne State University as a Guest Instructor and Speaker.
Craig has been a Board Member of the Michigan Tactical Officers Association, holding the positions of Training Committee Chairman, Tactical Trustee and Publisher of the newsletter. He currently holds a senior position on the training committee as well as the association treasurer.

Craig Pulvirenti Special Forces Liar and Fraud

Craig Pulvirenti Special Forces Liar and Fraud you can remove your Linkedin page and your bio at http://critical-training-group.com/instructors/

But as you can see we've already copied your false bio from critical-training-group webpage.

I don't know about everyone else but I'd be pissed if I found out that the guy giving me weapons training was really a 96B intel weenie instead of a Special Forces soldier.

Enjoy your new found fame.

I wonder if Craig Pulvirenti Special Forces Liar and Fraud falsified his application when he applied for any of his Law Enforcement jobs like he did with his BIO/LinkedIn and your former job at critical-training-group.com

I will bet if the PDs that he worked at go back they will also find false applications.

I knew Craig at Camp Dublin, Iraq from 2004 to 2005 (ERU under the State Department). He told me he was a support guy but had to go through the Q course because he was in the intel section at GSC. I've heard all those excuses before so I rarely waste my time running it to ground, it's pointless, these people are ubiquitous. He is most definitely not an SF guy. We would watch movies in our tent on his computer and almost every time he would show some gross-ass porn crap (the use of ass and crap in the sentence was intentional). It was so bad in fact that if I had every traveled through an Arab country with him I'd turn him in (and seriously, I hate Arabs).

I don't understand, I clicked on the links and there is no Craig Pulvirenti listed in the bios as an instructor.
And the LinkedIn profile does not exist.
It's like he doesn't exist anymore in the world of marksmanship and security instructors.

He must be on some Secret Training mission and they are having to back stop him. Way more secret than any of the REAL SF Guys........

That's what the frauds do once we expose them..... they run and hide.

Re: Craig Pulvirenti

Craig just worked for me on a DoS ATA course teaching SWAT-type stuff. I had a copy of his DD214 before the course started, as well as the information from his old LinkedIn Page and Online Bio.

Apparently at one time he was telling people he was Special Forces and it was included in his resume. I had already informed the contracting company and DoS representative that I would be reporting him for lying on his resume to be de-vetted from the program if that was still the case.

At no time during the trip did he represent himself as SF Qualified, but said several times he was in an Intel MOS. SF Qualification is also no longer on his resume at State Department.

He was an adequate instructor, but not very knowledgable about weapons, marksmanship, or close quarters battle.

After the Army, Craig attended the University of Heidelberg in Germany completing his Bachelor’s Degree.
Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, like other German universities, did not confer bachelor's degrees until sometime after the promulgation of the Hochschulrahmengesetz of 19.1.1999, designed to conform German higher education to a common European standard. I suppose he could have taken some courses there which counted toward a bachelor's from another institution (I studied international law there in 1999, but the credits were conferred by Georgetown), but Ruprecht-Karls would not have given him a bachelor's. Maybe a Diplom, which might be translated as equivalent to a bachelor's, but even that would be odd for a non-German.

Maybe there's some detail or careful lawyerly wording I haven't read. The CTG and LinkedIn bios don't seem to be online anymore.

As to the "support guy but had to go through the Q course" thing, doesn't that only apply to SIGDETs? We had 18E slots and could send candidates directly, rather than having to get them after serving in an ODA. I can't remember all the MTOEs, and no doubt they've changed over time, but I don't recall the MI Dets or Group G-2 having slots at the Q. Or does my memory fail me?

I'm at this moment working with ODA's from 1st SFG and none of the guys I work with have ever heard of someone going through the Q course as a support guy. The only place where confusion comes in is that now, apparently, CA refers to their course sections as "Phases" (phase 1, phase 2, etc) which could be misconstrued in a conversation as meaning the Q course.
Like I said before, I know this guy, worked with him, he's full of shit and always has been.

Seems Craig has surfaced and contacted an individual at SF Brothers.
Quote:
He says he has been unjustly accused. He says he has an "S" identifier and that he went through the Q course in 84. He says he has Flash orders and a Q course diploma. He would like an email address of someone he can send it to.
I'm waiting now.... Never seen "Flash" orders.....
