A.W.A.K.E. Featured Classes

A.W.A.K.E. – Alert With A Keen Eye

Here at FTA, we are dedicated to offering truly time-proven techniques for firearms safety and tactics. But we are also dedicated to helping you with your overall situational awareness and skills when it comes to your personal safety and defense of your family and home. Below, you will find a wealth of informative special interest classes that will have you more A.W.A.K.E. than you have ever been. Our expert instructors are ready to take you to the next level. These classes require that students have completed FTA’s FT 1: Beginner Firearms Training class or who already have experience and are comfortable with a firearm.

If you don’t have experience with a firearm or even if you don’t ever intend on having one, we can still help you. Contact us about lending a handgun from us, for personal purchase consultation (we’ll go with you!) or to discuss other ways FTA can help you with your situational awareness and can teach you many different safety techniques.
