Firearm Instruction and Training

Congratulations on you wanting to take your career to the next level! Being an armed guard is a lot of responsibility and it is very important to have quality training! Knowing how to handle your firearm, in the rights of the law, and even more importantly how to protect the innocent unarmed civilians is a must in this licensed capacity.

It is our passion to educate individuals to effectively protect souls, property, and assets. Our armed course is all about firearm laws, safety, handling, operations, mechanical training, and marksmanship. This education will consist of classroom, tactical drills, and range training.

In order to obtain a Class “G” Statewide Firearm License, each applicant must successfully complete the 28-hour initial qualification course. This course provides students with the basic knowledge and proficiency skills needed to safely handle and shoot a handgun (revolver or semiautomatic pistol).

Along with extensive educational material on firearms safety and the mechanical operation of firearms, this course also includes material on various legal aspects of firearms ownership, possession, and use. At the conclusion of the classroom portion of the 28-hour course, an examination will be administered to test the student’s mastery of content. Finally, students will be required to demonstrate proficiency in shooting a handgun by passing the course of fire outlined in this training manual.
