Rather than putting you into a classroom and subjecting you to 8 hours of lectures, we have moved into the 21st century and are using modern techniques to achieve the academic goals for OurSafeHome.net courses.
The academic portion of the course is conducted online. There are about 100 pages of multimedia presentations. There are dozens of videos and a few quizzes to help you learn the techniques that you will use during the practical application portion of the course.
The online course is completely self paced and mastery based. That is to say that you can spend as little or as much time as you wish in absorbing the material. You can only proceed onto the next phase of the course after your knowledge of the material has been evaluated.
These evaluations are in the form of short quizzes, given every few pages. The quizzes are not particularly difficult; they are primarily to ensure that you have actually read the text and watched the videos.
At the end of the academic course, you will take a final exam. After you have passed the final exam, you have now fulfilled the prerequisites for attending the OurSafeHome.net clinic associated with that course. At the clinic, we have a briefing, and then, we begin the "hands-on" portion of learning. There is no time for lectures or "boot-camp-type" activities, just you and your pre-qualified classmates focusing on the essentials!
The OurSafeHome.net-affiliated instructor will collect the clinic fee from you before beginning this exciting training event. There may be ammunition and range usage fees associated with the clinic event, too. Your instructor will inform you about all of the charges to be incurred before scheduling your clinic. Prepare to have fun!
Your OurSafeHome.net-affiliated instructor will deftly guide you through the exercises that are proven to result in success. Because you have actually first encountered the techniques in the online course, the instructor's role will be that of a "coach", rather than a teacher. This "teaching-team" approach makes for a non-threatening environment and allows you to absorb and master the skills presented in the clinic.
