Our live fire training classes requires certain resources to properly run.  We require a certain instructor to student ratio to ensure our student’s safety.  When planning the live fire classes we line up adjunct instructors to assist on the firing line based on the number of students who have registered.  When students fail to show up or cancel last minute, it not only adversely affects those instructors and the business, it adversely affects the other students because it takes time out of their training while we attempt to contact those who have registered, but fail to show. 


We will require payment when you register for live fire classes to secure your spot.  If you must cancel in greater than 72 hours, we will fully refund your payment.  If you cancel, or fail to show up, with less than 72 hours notice you will forfeit your payment.
