CON-ED Program

​The Continuing Education (CON-ED) program is designed to provide an economical option for those interested in pursuing further instruction. Whether that is to reinforce previous instruction, remain proficient for a career, or develop new skillsets and personal interest.

The mission of this program is to develop well rounded and responsible gun owners capable of thinking and reacting appropriately in a wide variety of situations. Although the flat range has its place in training it often leaves gaps in exposure to real life environments involving structures, vehicles and limited visibility.

CON-ED will provide students the opportunity to regularly experience several different courses while also maintaining consistency and increasing their proficiency as a gun owner.


The objective of each block of instruction is to establish a proper foundation or build upon a foundation of knowledge gained through previous instruction.


The full versatility of the carbine is seldom utilized because it is more often than not viewed as a close quarters platform. As a result most courses focus on how to fight or compete at close range, but ignore how to employ your rifle towards the far end of its capability.

This 2-Day course teaches how to maximize performance when transitioning from close to long range precision engagements. Developing proper mindset and focus will increase confidence and consistency when balancing speed and accuracy at extended ranges. Engagements will uncover which optics provide the most well-rounded capabilities, which accessories work, and what equipment truly has value.

Students will be expected to negotiate stress drills designed to induce moderate physical and mental stress for short periods of time.

Although basic weapons manipulations will be covered, it is recommended students possess a solid baseline understanding of how their chosen weapon system functions.
