Instructor Richard Smith does a great job, he has a great way of explaining things, I've taken three instructor certifications under him and will be using him again for future certifications.

I can’t think of another Training Counselor that I could refer people to that would be a better TC than Richard Smith.

The Firearms Training Academy is a great school! The instructors Richard Smith and Ron Anania are very good at what they do, they really go that extra mile to make everyone feel comfortable. They stay in touch with you even after you graduate to check on the progress you have made. I myself will be going back soon for more training. My experience there was great, I learned a lot, had quite a few laughs, ate my fair share of donuts and met some very interesting people. I hope to have the pleasure of working with them again when I go back. If you want to be trained right go to the Firearms Training Academy you will not regret it.
Incredible staff...have recommended to all my friends. Going back for more training
Very professional, I was impressed with their attention to detail during the course and everyone was very friendly! Will be going back!
