We have starting point classes for Handgun, Rifle, and Shotgun which can be found on our Current Class Offerings page marked Staring Point.

For the beginning student the best choice is to start at Level 1: Intro to Handguns followed by the Handgun Fundamentals and Familiarization or Concealed Carry 101, depending on the student's training goals. (Our Intro to Handguns class is a non-negotiable prerequisite for other level one handgun courses.)

Our starting point classes for rifle and shotgun training are Level 1 Rifle and Defensive Shotgun.

Intermediate to advanced students may start at Level 2: Defensive Handgun, Weeklong Handgun, or Tactical Rifle if they have previous experience and/or training relevant to the class.

Prerequisites apply for Guest Instructors which can be found on their individual registration pages or on the instructor's websites. 

If you are looking to start with a non-shooting class, our Handgun RetentionMini Baton/Pepper Spray, or Emergency Gunshot Trauma classes would be good options.

If you have taken previous training from another school, please contact us if you have a question about where to start.
