Due to the importance of the subject matter, each class size is kept to a minimum to maintain a positive instructor-to-student ratio.  Unlike other assembly line types of firearm training schools, training is conducted with quality in mind and not quantity!

What separates OCFT Academy from other firearm training instructors is the owner/lead instructor of the this school has actually been involved in deadly force encounters and teaches from actual life experiences as a result of his profession.  He has literally trained thousands of people from all walks of life, which include police and private security recruits, police officers, private security officers, and citizens with various backgrounds.

All of the highly competent instructors were hand-picked by the owner to maintain the professionalism and excellence OCFT Academy strives for. All state certified instructors are either current or former police officers and have established themselves as highly skilled trainers.  No one can match the qualifications and experience that will reflect in the quality of the training you will receive.

Once you successfully complete your individual course, you will not only leave with your certificate, you will also leave with the confidence to properly use your handgun both tactically and legally.
