"The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!"
– President Theodore Roosevelt
Some trainers may boast of 40-50-90 person class sizes.
Some trainers do not instruct  for the full training hours required.
Unfortunately there are some trainers who are not actually properly certified by the Organizations that they attempt to teach. Click here for more info
And sure, some training programs are cheaper.
At Campbell Personal Defense WE believe personalized instruction is paramount and our Class size is small (5-25 person maximum)to allow for a better learning environment. Whether you are taking a crime avoidance course or crisis mgmt training or basic pistol instruction, you have paid good  money for instruction and you deserve the proper attention to your training and guidance for success. 
Range time also is managed to assure that the student receives the proper attention and direction that they deserve. If you can't hit the target, there's not much sense in carrying a gun. Many range classes can be limited to not over 4 students per instructor.
We can and will, upon request, also schedule all female classes for you and your friends if  you would be more comfortable in this learning environment. We understand that some new to firearms and shooting sports may be more at ease in the beginning not having the "guys" around.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A GROUP OF FRIENDS OR COLLEAGUES  WHO WANT TO TAKE ONE OF THESE CLASSES, and if you have a location we can use as a classroom, then PLEASE EMAIL me on the  "CONTACT US"  PAGE AS WE CAN COME TO YOU if that makes more sense.
We also do Employer Group training for any of the Course's listed below.

Employer/Employee Private Training & Consulation:
In addition to the Course's available above,  Let us assist you in setting up your Crisis Mgmt Team. We will help you design  or update your Company' s Crisis Managment policy and then help train your employees on how to respond when bad things happen.
A crisis is any catastrophic event that impedes your daily operations. Whether you will allow concealed carry in your workplace or not, you still need a plan for crisis managment. There are so many other things that can affect your company.
Workplace Violence - Weather Events - Fire - Robbery or Armed Attacks - Internal Theft - Accidental Injury or Death - Technology systems events - Dealing with the Press and MORE !
Many Companies have several remote or satellite locations away from Corporate Headquarters. Whether yours does or whether everything and everyone is at the Home Office, during a crisis, it is paramount to have all Employees and Management trained and on the same page  in an effort to get things back to normalcy as soon as possible.
We also can help you review the advantages and decide if you are going to allow Concealed Carry in your business or on your property. We then provide guidelines and training on designing your CCW policy and the incorporation of this policy into your Crisis Mgmt Plan. The world has changed and progressive business owners must change with it. Studies have shown that allowing legal CCW in your workplace does not increase the potential for workplace violence. It has been acknowledged in multiple instances of workplace violence , that death and injury could have actually been less had just one trained employee  been armed  during the incident of violence.
 Did you know that you could be found negligent by not allowing properly trained and lawful  CCW Employees the opportunity to legally defend themselves?
