Full Immersion ($350)

With this option, we go beyond your basic refresher course, splitting the class into 2-parts. The first part of the class has some updates and general information. The second part of the day we go hands-on, focusing on carry skills, with live scenarios and drills including:

  • Decision Making
  • Shoot / No Shoot Scenarios
  • Stress Inoculation

You’ll perform hundreds of skill reps and go home with drills you can practice to keep your skills sharp once you leave.
