“OUR INSTRUCTORS TAKE THEIR TRAINING AND EDUCATION SERIOUSLY. WE UNDERSTAND THAT TRAINING EVOLVES WITH PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE FROM THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES.  WE SEEK OUT TRAINING FROM THOSE WHO STUDY VIOLENT ENCOUNTERS, BREAKDOWN CRITICAL INCIDENTS, AND CHALLENGE EXISTING TRAINING METHODOLOGIES. THIS ENSURES WE'RE PROVIDING OUR STUDENTS WITH THE MOST UP TO DATE RELEVANT AND PRACTICAL TRAINING AVAILABLE.

 

OUR INSTRUCTORS ARE IN THE CLASSROOM, ON THE RANGE, AND CONSTANTLY LEARNING  - IT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT FROM THOSE YOU CHOOSE TO LEARN FROM. "
