All the Firearms Training Classes Offered at SharpShooters

We offer a lot of training classes. A LOT of training classes. Sometimes, it’s difficult for even us to keep up with what’s what when and who. And we’re adding more classes every week as our instructors learn and get great experiences that they can pass on to our customers. That’s what’s really at the core of a great training organization: experience. We’re not “a great training organization” yet. We will be, and one of the reasons we will be is that we are actively investing in the training, education, and experience of our instructors. We want them to do stuff that very few people get to do, so they can pass on that knowledge and experience to anyone and everyone else they teach.

Just today, I was scrolling through Instagram, and saw Lena Miculek’s latest post, in which she’s about to spend the next 30 days at Sig Sauer Academy teaching. Here’s what she said:

all knowledge and experience not shared is wasted.

That sums up exactly half of our approach to training. The other half is investing in our instructors to get the best training and experience possible. Below is a list of all our classes, and a summary of each. Our mission is to educate every one of our customers, from wherever they are now to wherever they want to be in the future.
