T4Tactics in Lynchburg, VA serving Forest, Bedford, Moneta, Roanoke and surrounding agencies has some tips for you when selecting a company for firearm safety training, Active Shooter Awareness and Response Classes and Personal Protection in the home classes and the Multi-State Concealed permit course.
1. Make sure the company is licensed, insured and has a brick and mortar location. Legitimacy will start here!
2. Look at the instructors background and credentials. Do they have the training and life experience needed to teach the courses not only by the minimum training standards but well above. The instructor should have personal knowledge of every powerpoint slide or topic which is being taught. Not just "read it in a book" type of instruction.
3. Carrying concealed and responsible gun ownership are huge tasks to undertake. You need proper training and guidance from scholarly professionals.
4. What does the company do for the community? Do they just exist or do they support the community and remain active? Are they members of Chamber Groups, Small Business Support Groups and or Civic groups? This will tell you a lot about the company.
Do your research and check out the company before doing any training. Feel free to contact us at any time for a consultation. T4tactics.com
