How to Register
PLEASE READ REGISTRATION INFORMATION CAREFULLY
In order for The Firearms Academy of Seattle, Inc. to maintain a high degree of integrity and effectiveness in our programs, it is essential that you understand the following information BEFORE enrolling in an F.A.S. course. Our courses fill rapidly -- often as far in advance as 6 weeks prior to the scheduled class. Guest-instructed courses often fill within weeks of their announcement on this website. Please register as early as you are able.
To enroll in an F.A.S. course, you need to do the following:
Read the course description, prerequisites and other requirements for students. Register by clicking the "Register Now" link at the bottom of the course description or print out and complete this registration form and send to F.A.S. at the address on the printable form. We advise that you call to check class fullness before mailing in a registration form.
You may also register by phone by calling 1-360-978-6100, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday with VISA or MasterCard number for the tuition deposit. Registrants are sent a confirmation letter, map to the range, and other information needed to attend the class.
Please understand that due to the advanced nature of the material presented, it is necessary to "screen" those private citizens to whom we teach police based, advanced self-defense and firearms instruction. F.A.S. requires a valid State Issued Concealed Weapons Permit, police ID or military ID, presented to the instructor before training begins for all courses except Level 1 Rifle, Defensive Shotgun, Fundamentals of Home Defense, Concealed Carry 101 and the Handgun Safety Seminar. Students in these programs will be required to sign a statement that they are legally allowed to own handguns prior to participation.
Deposits or prepaid tuition are required to register in a class and when you submit your registration you are committing to attend that class. Online registration is set up to handle the entire tuition fee, but if you prefer to make a non-refundable tuition deposit of $100 for multiple day classes, you can mail in your registration (see form here) or call us at 360-978-6100 and we will do the paperwork for you. Students are asked to prepay the full tuition for one-day classes or Special Interest Seminars.
Cancellations: With at least one week prior notification, F.A.S. will apply the deposit or prepaid tuition toward a future F.A.S. class if you cannot make it to the class in which you reserved a spot. Emergencies are handled on a case by case basis, so please call us if a problem arises after you've registered.
Upon receipt of your payment and registration form, you will be sent maps and directions to the range, and all other information necessary to attend the classes, including equipment lists, and lodging information for Chehalis, in case you plan to spend the night there. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call, Monday thru Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
It is necessary to pre-register for all F.A.S. classes.
