About B.R.T.

Professional Instruction


With over a decade of Military and Private Security Government contracting experience, I provide professional instruction in the safety and use of firearms, emergency medical pre-hospital care, personal security and home defense tactics, physical security of your home, and the mindset you need to protect yourself and your family. 

The safe use of firearms is the first thing that you will learn in all classes. Safety is of the utmost importance. I provide a basic handgun class for those unfamiliar with firearms and looking to learn the basics. I also offer more advanced training, such as tactical employment of pistols and rifles, concealed carry classes, personal protection classes, and advanced firearms classes to vetted students. Every class incorporates basic or advanced emergency medical skills, based on the client's needs.
