Please note There is no automatic pass, unlike some other academies.  You can fail a class.  Payment of tuition does not guarantee passing.  We will do all that we can to help you, however, we would not be well respected, or sought out if we passed students just because they paid tuition.  Basic classes and introduction classes are the exception as those students have not come to class with a pre-stated skills set.   If you are worried about failing it is all the more reason to attend our classes and improve your skills. Students in the Basic and Introduction classes will receive a Certificate of Competence relevant to the firearm(s) used in training.
