Look at the instructors qualifications, both as an instructor and a shooter. Do you have access to the instructor by phone
or e-mail? If you have questions, you have the right to an answer. Does the school teach the courses offered, or do they host
other instructors? If they host other instructors, you might want to consider the option of going directly to that instructor instead.
•Testimonials: What are the other student's
comments? Do they look authentic? Do they cover the classes you are interested in taking?
•Photos: "A picture tells a thousand
words!" Are they Internet "Stock photos"? Are they only of the instructors, or photos from actual classes?
•Classroom: Do they have an office? What
range do they use for their training?
•Classes: Do they have scheduled classes (weekly, monthly?) in what you are interested
in? If they don't, they might not have a full time school.
•Primary function: Is the primary function of the training
school firearms training? Training is what you are looking for; not security services, private investigations, bodyguards, etc.
If the company is trying to do too many things, your class might get lost in the mix!
