About Academy-level Firearms Instructors and Training
Academy Level Training Facilities: These are prestigious training facilities that certify instructors based on academics, scholarship, and the pursuit of teaching students at a higher level. Training facilities include Level 1 Firearms Training Academy, Glock Training, Pew-pew Tactical, Sig-Sauer Training Academy, and Thunder Ranch.
Other training: There are a vast variety of basic training classes available for the student. The National Rifle Association (herein NRA) provides the “Basics of…” student training series which provides very basic training to students. United States Concealed Carry Association (herein USCCA) focuses on concealed carry instruction. Finally, there’s Legal Heat which sells insurance to concealed carry owners. All these organizations provide basic handgun training classes. None of these organizations meet academy standards but they do serve the firearms community when it comes to some sort of basic instruction.
