Preparedness Training (Level 2)

Course Description: Designed for the person who has been prepping for a while or the beginner who wants to get ahead quickly, this all day blended learning course provides range time during the morning and class room training in the afternoon. 

During the range portion, students will run drills with pistols and long guns useful in situations occurring outside the home. Range work will be similar to drills in our Defensive Pistol Skills 2, Personal Tactics Skills, and Defensive Long Gun Essentials courses, with emphasis on gunhandling appropriate for a 360 degree environment in close proximity to others (threats, strangers and friends/family).

The classroom portion is designed to raise the skill level of those who have completed the basic preparations for various emergencies.  Students will receive training on advanced preparedness topics designed to improve the student’s overall level of preparedness.

Topics: Drawing from concealment, 360 degree gunhandling, gunhandling around vehicles, team tactics. Developing a home medical emergency plan, creating a robust neighborhood watch, practical gold and silver investing, creating a 60 day plan to become disaster ready, preparing your workplace for emergencies
