Class Description

Advanced
Firearms Training

This eight-hour class is for intermediate and advanced students looking to refine their skills. If you have a strong foundation, and you’re proficient in intermediate skills, this is the course for you. Building on the skills from the foundation class, this class will add stress from a timer and cardiovascular activity to shooting drills to simulate real-world self-defense environments. Students will find their limits, learn their weaknesses, and develop strategies to maintain speed and accuracy.

This class assumes you will be confident and ready to go. There will be no refreshing of basic firearm handling or marksmanship principles. This class is designed to challenge your mastery of gun handling fundamentals and test your accuracy with time, physical exertion, distance pressure.

Participants are required to have either a valid Alaska concealed carry permit, current law enforcement or military identification, or a State of Alaska background check prior to participating in this class. All students must have also take the Stage 1 class and been approved by an instructor. Please note that each platform (handgun, carbine, shotgun) has a separate training course.
