What Do I bring?

  • Note taking materials. Laptop recommended,  (you may also want to bring an extension cord/power strip) Audio / video recording of the class is not allowed.
  • If legal to do so, student may be armed in the classroom, but there will be no handling of firearms in the lecture setting.
  • This class is lecture only, there will not be any live fire.

Please bring your own lunches, snacks, beverages etc. We have a “working lunch” in all classes. Many of our facilities do not have a place close enough to purchase meals and get back in a reasonable amount of time. Also remember that many of our classes are 10 hour days so if you need another meal in that amount of time please bring it.  Bring water, while we do provide water at all of our locations, it never hurts to bring some more. We teach in many locations and cannot guarantee the comfort of the chairs, if that might be an issue for you feel free to bring a cushion to sit on (We like this one).


If you have any questions ask the host of the class you are taking.
