We work strictly according to the FGASA ARH Protocol and conduct all assessments accordingly.
We cannot guarantee you passing ARH, but because we work one-on-one, we have a far better success rate than with large groups.

Coaching and assessment give you coaching plus any ARH exercise you complete during that session. You are given credit for completed exercises.
Included in these charges are Range Fees, water, plus all the time you need in composing yourself prior to each exercise!
Where we supply the ammo, there is no limit to the number of rounds used.
Copies of your Proficiency Certificates (all three as above!) MUST be included with your Assessment sheet.
