Create Personal Training Goals

We are commonly asked what classes a student should take after a Basic or CCW permit class or when looking for advanced training. This is a great question, because we strongly believe training is a continuous process. Our motto is: Always a Student. When you stop learning, your skills will degrade.

The path you take next will depend on your goals – personal or home defense, sport, competition, or other interests.

Regardless of objectives, virtually all individuals share a common desire to protect themselves and their families. For this reason, we have provided an initial “Goal” for Defensive Training. Since course titles vary greatly from instructor to instructor, we have created recommended steps or milestones to look for within a course when searching classes to meet a training goal.

As you take classes, you can keep track of completed milestones and your progress in achieving each step of the training Goal.

We realize many of you would like to see additional goals created for other shooting disciplines. Please contact us to let us know your goals so we can create additional checklists.
