We know that everyone has busy schedules and wants to get the best training during what little free time we have in life. I retired from my Law Enforcement career in January 2020 to provide the best real-world CCW training available to the public. The Sheepdog Project does not require a certain number students in order to run a class. On the contrary though, we do limit our class size to six. The purpose is to ensure we provide you with quality, individualized training that you deserve.
Here’s how this works. If you’re seeing a big list of courses below, you can pick whatever course you qualify for. If you’re only seeing one course below, someone already picked and that is the only course available for this date. Course selection will be on a “first come, first serve” basis.
ere is a list of courses available and a link to more information about them:
Let us know how we can serve you by selecting the course you want from the list below.
ALSO, don’t forget about the ALTRA Package! If you don’t have a gun yet, no need to buy one before taking our courses. Just add the ALTRA Package to your cart below and we will provide you with everything you’re going to need for the course.
And Graduates, you will just need to select the Graduate Fee for the Course you would like to take down in the EXTRAS section.
