... for your CCW / CPL training

There are many things to consider when choosing an organization or instructor to provide you with your training. These factors will greatly determine the quality, effectiveness and your overall training experience.

Things to think about…
  • Do I go with the cheapest?
  • Am I getting what I'm paying for?
  • What is the quality of the training?
  • Am I just going through the training because I only want to get my permit?
  • Do I want to actually learn the proper techniques that could better help me survive a defensive encounter?
  • At face value, many instructors look credible and are NRA certified…however what is their background and experience?
  • Are they recognized throughout the state as a certified trainer?
  • Are you going to have trouble when applying for your permit?
  • How many students has your instructor actually trained?
  • What is the diversity of the training team?
  • How is your instructor in training new shooters?
  • Does your instructor list his/her name, credentials and background on his/her website as well as how long they have been certified to teach classes?
