**~ Hosting an OpSpec Training Class in your Area ~**
There is a demand for firearms training.

As a training organization offering classes from coast-to-coast, OpSpec Training relies on local hosts to help us network with the range, shooting clubs, law enforcement training coordinators and firearm dealers in the area.

Many friends and prospective students ask us to offer a class in their area. We are always willing to travel, but we do require a local host for most classes. That local host can be you.

So what's involved if I sign up to be a local host?

Update: We now have a OpSpec Training Host Guide in PDF format. Click here to download the guide.

The primary focus for the host will be marketing the class in the local area. We understand many people will not know where to start, so OpSpec Training can provide you with handouts specific to the class to get you started. We can also help with a presentation you can give at your local club's member meetings.

We encourage you to reach out to your local fun shops, as most owners and managers have a vested interest in shooters being active in the area. Frequently, they will be more-than-willing to promote an OpSpec Training class.

Many of our students are members of law enforcement. We encourage you to contact local departments and let them know about a prospective training opportunity. If you're a bit uncomfortable doing this, no problem, just provide our team with the contact information and we can reach out to them.

If possible, we encourage you to post about the training opportunity in local online forums for those interested in firearms.

We only need 12 students to offer a class in your area.

What else will I need to do?

You'll be the liaison between OpSpec Training and the range. This is important as we do have range requirements and ranges will need information from us. We'll also need some help from you for our staff and students who may be coming from out-of-town.

We do have range-specific requirements depending on the program being offered. Contact us for additional information.

In general...


As a local host, you'll get marketing support from OpSpec Training on our website, in our newsletter and in gun forums. You'll be able to participate in the class for free.

If you're interested in hosting a class, contact us and we'll get right back to you about the opportunity.

Evil exists. You can not negotiate with, bribe or placate evil. You're not going to be able to have it sit down with Dr. Phil for an anger management session either.

It's totally worth the time and effort to get them to your area. I would encourage anyone interested to look into your local facilities and see what you could arrange. Definitely contact OpSpec for details on what they need first, as the range owner will want to know some details up front before committing to anything.

Also, another good service for a local host to provide is being an address for students to drop ship ammo in from out of town/state.

Steve,

I am still waiting for Operation Specific to get back to me on their desired dates. RRGC is very flexible at this time, as few dates are filled for 2015.

Understood. We've been looking at dates this week. It takes a bit of time to coordinate who is available when, since we have holidays and personal schedules to review.

If you personally would like to go for a specific week or weekend, let me know via email as that will allow us to limit our focus as we look through everyone's calendar.
