KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, ABILITIES (KSA)
1. Knowledge of process for training and evaluating explosives detector dogs from initial through advanced levels of explosives detection training.
Working as a Trainer/Supervisor with the TSA National Explosive Detection Canine Team Program (NEDCTP) since 2002, and in similar positions dating back to the early 1990s, I have consistently demonstrated advanced knowledge of training and evaluation processes vital to optimizing performance of explosives detector dogs/K-9 teams. In each position I have held sole and/or primary responsibility for facilitating canine training in explosives detection. I have effectively applied my broad knowledge of animal behavior and psychology in developing and implementing explosive detector dog training programs, from basic through advanced levels, and am well-versed in both Classical and Operant Conditioning Models as well as the positive and negative aspects of the Learning Model. I have solid working knowledge of applying theories of Reward Training (Extinction, Avoidance and Escape) as well as Applied Behavior Analysis in real-world scenarios and food reward methodologies. Currently, I am responsible for ensuring all new dogs, as well as handlers, are fully trained for their first 14-day training mission. After implementing strategic training programs and upon successful team completion of initial training program, I am subsequently responsible for ongoing proficiency training and development.
In order to determine impact and success of training, I also conduct routine evaluations of explosive detection teams (three times weekly) in order to define inefficiencies and develop/execute targeted actions to maximize results. I also consistently review and analyze training records in order to identify additional strategies for optimizing performance. I take the initiative to utilize valuable resources, such as TSA NEDCTP website forum as well as personal interface with TSA NEDCTP Evaluators/Trainers to maintain current knowledge of advanced techniques as well as to address and determine answers for questions related to our operations. I also expertly provide evaluation-based advise to Handlers on training and utilization of canines. This includes clearly identifying and resolving training deficiencies. Concurrently, I work closely with the Honolulu Police Department and Local Sherrif Department Explosive Detection Teams, providing expert advise to senior police personnel on assessments and corrective actions in order to support them in maximizing their programs. While serving as a Trainer with the United States Navy, I was hand-selected to lend my expertise toward training an FAA washout dog and preparing it for annual Law Enforcement Physical Security (LEPS) evaluation, successfully implementing training techniques to certify the explosive detector dog at 95% find rate during initial LEPS evaluation. I have acquired comprehensive, advanced training through all branches of the Military and Federal/State government and have graduated from both Military and Civilian Dog Handler Schools.

Kenneth Gaymon 000-00-0000 TSA-0000 xxxxxx xxxx , xxxx , xxxxx 000003 KSA RESPONSES- Page 2 of 6
Additionally, I took advantage of the opportunity collaborate with a team of British detection dog Handlers, where we shared information on techniques used by varied sources in order to boost our knowledge and proficiencies.
My background has included training and evaluating canine teams for explosives detection in diverse areas/settings ranging from aircraft, baggage, cargo, vehicles, checkpoints, and all areas of airport terminals to docked cruise ships, marine vessels, shipping containers, warehouses, commercial/institutional facilities, military bases, and incoming mail.
2. Demonstrated knowledge of Federal regulations governing the safe handling and security pertaining to actual (not simulated) explosive substances used for explosives detection canine training aids.
As a Canine Supervisor/Handler with the TSA NEDCTP, I have consistently demonstrated expertise in Federal Regulations, ensuring compliance with safe handling and security protocol related to actual explosive substances used as training aids. I offer a comprehensive working knowledge of TSA, NEDCTP and related Standard Operating Practices and Procedures (SOPPs) and in a leadership capacity, continually enforce compliance in training and directing Handlers. I am also proficient in maintaining detailed training and utilization records per TSA NEDCTP standards. In my present position, I also work closely with diverse Federal and State law enforcement agencies.
Over the course of my career, I have worked with multiple government and military entities, all with complex standards driving the handling and security of explosive substances. Concurrent with my position with the Hawaii State Department of Transportation s Airports Division, I am an Explosive Detection K-9 Trainer/Handler with Certified Detection, LLC, where I oversee the search of cargo, baggage and ships per U.S. Coast Guard standards.
Working with Coastal International Security, I demonstrated solid understanding of DoD compliance in achieving 95% rating in training detector canines to identify 9 distinct odors. During that time, I also partnered with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) to ensure accountability and security of explosive training aids per their stringent guidelines. With the United States Navy, I worked with U.S. Secret Service Special Agents in facilitating explosives detection supporting visits by the U.S. President and foreign dignitaries, again, ensuring compliance with their standards of practice, regulations, etc. In this capacity, I also worked heavily in joint exercises and operations with Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal Units.
Complementing this, my extensive training and certifications in explosives, including the U.S. Navy Explosives Ordinance Disposal and Firearms Safety program, among many others, has encompassed the training and experience to ensure appropriate, regulatory-compliant security and handling of explosive substances.
3. Influencing/Negotiating - Persuades others; builds consensus through give and take, gains cooperation from others to obtain information and accomplish goals; facilitates "win-win" situations.
Recently we have gone through several critical contract negotiations with the State, and I have served as key contact in meeting with the Purchasing Technician and Airport Security Manager as well as DOT/Airports Division Administrative personnel to collaboratively achieve contract goals. This has involved steering persuasive negotiations on everything
Kenneth Gaymon 000-00-0000 TSA-0000 xxxxxx xxxx , xxxx , xxxxx 000003 KSA RESPONSES- Page 3 of 6
from pay, supply and benefit to reporting and chain of command issues, and I have been successful in facilitating these negotiations to attain the contracting goals not only of the employer (TSA) but the State.
As a Trainer and Supervisor, I am constantly using persuasive communication skills in building and leading top-performing Canine/Handler teams, with a continual focus on maximizing results, promoting consensus and collaboration and cooperatively achieving critical goals. Further, in many of my positions I have been relied upon to provide proactive, convincing recommendations to senior personnel on strategies for boosting performance and attaining objectives.
As a Liaison and primary point of contact between the employer and diverse organizations, regulatory agencies and key stakeholders, the ability to influence and negotiate has been critical to operations. I have successfully collaborated with entities ranging from
British Royal Navy Canine Handlers, US Custom Handlers, Honolulu Police Department K9 Handlers, Contract K9 Handlers, and K9 Handlers from all Military branches to Filipino Sentry K9 Handlers, FBI K9 Handlers, USSS K9 Handlers, and Guam Airport Authority Police K9 Handlers on cross-functional and joint missions, consistently ensuring consensus and facilitating teamwork for a win-win outcome.
While with the United States Navy, I also applied my dynamic negotiation and consensus-building skills toward actively supporting Local and Federal government War on Drugs initiatives in working with U.S. Customs at geographically dispersed locations in achieving goals, leading to over $4M in narcotics confiscation.
4. Financial Management - Demonstrates broad understanding of principles of financial management and marketing expertise necessary to ensure appropriate funding levels. Prepares, justifies, and/or administers the budget for the program area; uses cost-benefit thinking to set priorities; monitors expenditures in support of programs and policies. Identifies cost-effective approaches.
I have successfully spearheaded many Kennel projects, requiring the ability to effectively forecast, develop, allocate, and administer budgets to ensure optimal use of resources, control costs and meet stringent budgetary guidelines. As a key example, while stationed at Diego Garcia with the U.S. Navy, I successfully planned and implemented a 6-month Military Working Dog (MWD) renovation project focused on preserving perimeter fencing, modifications to interior canine stalls and office spaces and a kennel ventilation system. Through expert planning, allocation and use of financial resources, I was able to not only come in under budget, but save the Command over $80K in material and labor costs. While there, I also demonstrated a sharp financial management acumen in successfully identifying and resolving a major discrepancy found during a comprehensive Chief of Naval Operations inspection.
While at Subase Bangor, again, with the U.S. Navy, I also successfully managed a labor and materials budget supporting the construction of a Military Working Dog (MWD) Cemetery. In an additional capacity as Supply Custodian, I managed fluctuating quarterly budgets and procurement so effectively that we were routinely left with surplus. As a result, I often had surplus funding that I was able to strategically apply toward additional operational initiatives; as quarterly funding was based on prior quarter spend, effectively using all budgetary resources was vital to avoiding lower budget resource availability for subsequent quarters.
Kenneth Gaymon 000-00-0000 TSA-0000 xxxxxx xxxx , xxxx , xxxxx 000003 KSA RESPONSES- Page 4 of 6
I additionally drove a major project in Kwajalein while with the U.S. Navy, involving the full start-up through delivery construction of a new Kennel. In addition to designing the Kennel, I actively steered and participated in numerous labor and materials meetings in order to justify spending and define optimal strategies for meeting project goals while controlling costs in order to maximize use of a limited budget.
I am presently serving as a Supply Custodian, where one of my roles is to cost-effectively manage the procurement of all K-9 supply purchases. This includes managing detailed logs and ensuring validity and justification of expenses as well as partnering with the State accounting representative throughout reimbursement processes, from submission of reimbursement packages through receipt of Federal funds.
I have also served as Treasurer in the Military and in volunteer/community settings. Currently, I serve as a Board Member on my Apartment Owners Association (AOA), where I am actively involved in evaluating and addressing budgetary issues. This includes soliciting cost-effective bids for contracted services. Presently I am working with the Association in planning, bidding and awarding a $200K project contract for facility maintenance and upgrades. Going back as far as high school employment as an Assistant Manager, I was actively involved in budgeting, accounting and financial management/reporting.
On a more personal, entrepreneurial
level, I applied my dynamic financial management skills toward successfully
purchasing 8 properties, primarily in Hawaii. Capitalizing on a lucrative
rental market, I successfully renovated many of these properties on a tight
budget, coordinating everything from labor and materials to funding, and rented
and managed the properties at a solid profit. I then successfully
positioned these properties for sale at a strong return on investment, using a
1031 Tax Exchange strategy to then purchase similar, higher-valued properties;
I now own/manage properties in 3 different US cities, requiring sound fiscal
management and budgetary skills to financially thrive in an
5. Problem-Solving - Identifies and analyzes complex problems; distinguishes between relevant and irrelevant information to make logical decisions; provides solutions to individual and organizational problems.
As primary point of contact for VIP and outer Island supports, I work closely with the FBI and USSS, as well as key related stakeholders, in effectively identifying, analyzing and troubleshooting problems through strategic and logistical decisionmaking, proactive leadership and solutions-focused problem solving. Demonstrating my successful analytical and complex problem solving skills, I have consistently steered the Honolulu Airport K-9 Unit toward attaining a 100% pass rate during Annual Evaluations since joining the team as Trainer. As a Supervisor in charge of conducting team evaluations and writing disciplinary reports, I am required to clearly identify and extensively analyze performance deficiencies and assess findings/relevant information to determine and execute targeted action plans for boosting results.
With management responsibilities during much of my career, the ability to identify and analyze operational needs and determine and execute optimal scheduling, coordination and utilization of human, K-9 and related resources has been crucial to both short-term and long-range goal achievement. During this time, I have also applied my strong research and analysis skills toward effectively identifying operational inefficiencies, and as a result of findings, I have twice written new SOPs that have proven instrumental in enhancing efficiency, productivity and quality of operations.
Kenneth Gaymon 000-00-0000 TSA-0000 xxxxxx xxxx , xxxx , xxxxx 000003 KSA RESPONSES- Page 5 of 6
Earlier in my career as a Military Law Enforcement Officer, I was required to identify, analyze, troubleshoot, and resolve complex problems in time-sensitive, often dangerous situations, where strategic problem solving, sound judgment and decisive leadership was crucial to determining and implementing immediate solutions. While working with the Kwajalein K-9 Unit Investigations Department, I excelled in conducting interrogations and investigations to gather, evaluate and effectively interpret complex information and define appropriate courses of action.
6. Oral Communication - Makes clear and convincing oral presentations to individuals or groups; listens effectively and clarifies information as needed; facilitates an open exchange of ideas and fosters atmosphere of open communication.
I offer you numerous years of experience as a Trainer as well as Supervisor, requiring the ability to effectively communicate complex information in a clear manner to broad audiences of both individuals and groups. I have successfully developed and delivered instructional/ training programs in all areas of explosives and narcotics canine handling and explosives detection as well as wide-range operations, policies and procedures.
In my current position as Supervisor at Honolulu International Airport, I am also relied upon to contribute my dynamic communication skills toward serving as liaison between our Canine Unit and airport administrators as well as actively participating in key meetings. Additionally, I provide canine detection demonstrations for the public. In recognition of my strong communication and interpersonal relation skills, I was selected by the Airport Director to deliver a presentation to all other Island Airport Federal Security Directors detailing our K-9 program and advising on strategies for establishing their own programs.
Earlier in my career with the U.S. Navy Aviation Administration Maintenance team, I similarly served as liaison between Maintenance Control and cross-functional workstations, playing a vital role in ensuring clear communications for optimal operational performance. As a Certified Emergency Vehicle Operator Course (EVOC) Instructor, I also gave numerous oral presentations.
I have also worked extensively with the public, which demands the ability to communicate complex rules and regulations as well facilitate positive interpersonal relations. As a Law Enforcement Officer, 1997-2002, my oral communication skills were vital to effectively enforcing rules and regulations as well as conducting interviews and interrogations.
7. Written Communication - Expresses facts and ideas in writing in succinct and organized manner.
My ability to develop clear written communications has played a vital role in composing volumes of succinct professional emails, developing and maintaining complex records, drafting detailed inspection schedules, providing senior personnel with quality periodic reports, preparing performance evaluations, and managing databases of critical information. As part of my position with the TSA NEDCTP, I have actively collaborated in developing and documenting training techniques, procedures, operating instructions, and contract work statements for civilian personnel.
Kenneth Gaymon 000-00-0000 TSA-0000 xxxxxx xxxx , xxxx , xxxxx 000003 KSA RESPONSES- Page 6 of 6
Clearly illustrating my written communication capabilities, I comprehensively reviewed and rewrote the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for our Canine Unit while working with Coastal International Security/Akal Security/Alutiiq Security. Through clear, effective communication of complex policies and procedures, I was able to contribute to their success in boosting operational productivity, efficiency, quality, and standards compliance with varied regulatory agencies and guidelines. Similarly, with the U.S. Navy, I authored the MWD section of the SOP Manual for the Diego Garcia Canine Unit
8. Accountability - Assures that effective controls are developed and maintained to ensure the integrity of the organization. Holds self and others accountable for rules and responsibilities. Can be relied upon to ensure that projects within specific areas of responsibility are completed in a timely manner and within budget. Monitors and evaluates plans, focuses on results and measuring attainment of outcomes.
I have held Supervisory and Leadership positions during much of career, with broad-scope accountability for training programs and personnel. Presently, I am a K-9 Trainer/Supervsior with the NEDCTP, where I am responsible for coordinating, assigning, directing, and evaluating the performance of a 6-member team of handlers and canines in support of critical TSA objectives at Honolulu International Airport. Concurrently, I am responsible for developing, coordinating and delivering instructional/training programs vital to the security of travelers, personnel, facilities, and property. In driving both operations and training, the ability to consistently prioritize, plan and facilitate workflow and projects to meet stringent timelines, budgetary guidelines and regulatory standards is crucial to maintaining accountability, maximizing results and achieving goals. I have also played a vital role in maintaining optimal accountability while assisting the FCC in conducting comprehensive annual canine assessments. Partnering with the FCC, I have further collaborated in ensuring smooth operations since inception and implementation of our Priority Mail mission.
Over the course of my progressive career, I have held wide-range accountability responsibilities. As a current Supply Custodian, I am responsible for all K9 supply purchases. Additionally, I have routinely held the position of Primary Custodian of both Narcotic and Explosive Training Aids and have been entrusted with the accountability and security of highly sensitive inventory/supplies. In this capacity, I have successfully developed and implemented policies, procedures and systems to ensure optimal integrity and accountability from issuance and receipt through tracking and detailed records management. I have also strategically selected, trained and oversaw alternate Custodians to support these operations at high accountability levels.
Going back as far as 1994, I held a high level of accountability, with responsiblity for the safety and security of base personnel and resources at Subase Bangor. In support of objectives, I successfully ensured a drug-free environment for all military personnel and their families by facilitating base-wide searches using narcotics detector dogs in support of our Morale and Welfare program. I have also often taken the initiative to spearhead and collaborate in special projects, taking them from strategic planning and development through implementation. For instance, with the U.S. Navy, I was instrumental in planning, coordinating and facilitating the construction of a Military Working Dog (MWD) Cemetery at Subase Bangor, from concept through successful completion, honoring the contributions of our deceased MWDs. I also took the lead and assumed full accountability in facilitating a major kennel facility renovation at Diego Garcia.
