Chuck Whitzel

Chuck provides subject matter expertise on accreditation standards, guidelines, and policies for a major professional certification program, providing direct support to a Department of Defense (DoD) client. In a previous assignment, he was a key member of another certification program team that developed and fielded the first-ever nationally accredited Certification Program in the DoD.

Chuck retired from the U.S. Air Force after a 26-year career as an intelligence officer. Since “retiring,” he has contributed to several Joint and U.S. Army programs in the acquisition and intelligence communities. He came to GSX from the FBI, where he used his knowledge of Instructional Systems Design to assess and analyze training needs to improve trainee outcomes at the FBI Academy. He earned a Master of Education at The University of Oklahoma where he specialized in Adult Education.

He also holds the Intelligence Fundamentals Professional Certification (IFPC) and specialty certificates in Credentialing and Applied Project Management.

  • Chuck enjoys spending time with his family. He holds the family record for the number of fossilized shark teeth found and remains undefeated in family tennis matches.
  • He loves dogs and currently has a “Granddog” who is a helicopter crash survivor.
  • Chuck spent more than 10 years residing in places like Germany, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq. This fed his passion for travel leading to a goal of one major trip per year.
  • Rumor has it he choreographed and performed to Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies while wearing a tutu at a Squadron Holiday party. He will neither confirm nor deny this if asked.
