Personal Protection and Firearm Training Classes

Personal Protection is more than reading a book or watching a youtube video.
Although these methods do provide you with some knowledge and certainly helps but skills are also needed.

Thinking you can do something is different than actually doing it.

In today's world of self protection it seems to be focused on firearms, using a firearm is a "tool of last resort"
It shouldnt' be the only tool in the box.

FSE has partnered with
Conditioned Response in developing classes which teach both
the knowledge and skill needed to better protect yourself with or without a firearm.
This class structure also provides you with an opportunity to continuing your training and education.

We have provided some other links to training materials HERE.

What is the difference between Beginner Handgun and NRA Beginner Handgun

Beginner Handgun is completely done in a classroom, more hands on and live fire is not required ( but available). NRA is both online and in the classroom, live fire is required to complete the course and receive a NRA course completion certificate. This class or certificate is NOT for Permit to Carry, excellent beginner class for those looking to get a permit to carry.
