Covered pretty much all the bases beyond personal preferences of types of carrying. Safety for self and others was primary. The legal implications of actually using a weapon was a helpful angle. The online choice made this a no-brainer for me and my schedule. Thanks, Safe Insight!
Quick and easy. Was able to complete the course in less than a week at my own pace when it was convenient for me. Was able to schedule my live fire qualification right after completing the online course. I scheduled it for 2 weeks later. I showed up to the range, shot the course of fire and was qualified right there.
There are many reasons why this is probably the most convenient way to get your CCW instruction. For me it was the speed in which they operate. I feel like there was no waiting for anything. The online course is at your own pace and they send all the paperwork and certificates quickly. Brandon was my qualification instructor and he just had a great attitude and just told me to do my thing. With that being said, I was able to show up early in the morning when it fit my schedule and was out of there in 20 mins. It was so quick that I decided to buy another EDC and go back to qualify another because I knew I would have it before my OCSD Background check was done.
Everything about the course was perfect considering I was able to take the lecture on my own pace. The only downside of the course is I had to pay an extra $20 for the certificate, which I was not made aware of. Mind you, I already paid for the course and was then nickel and dimed in the end to pay for addition $20 for a certificate. Wouldn’t that just me part of the initial course costs?
SAFE INSIGHT: Thank you for your observation Andrew. We recently switched to a new registration process and forgot to put a note in there about the certificates. We have corrected that since reading your review. Most companies charge $10 -$20 fees per firearm. We never have. But since the Sheriff now allows an unlimited number of firearms instead of only 3, we had to start charging a fee for each certificate (which can have up to 3 firearms on it).
By far the best on-line training available. I thought I knew a lot about guns and shooting. Whenever I do the on-line training I learn more and more. Great class and instruction. Mike keeps it fun and on task. I don't dread taking training from Safe Insight!
Michael is a great instructor. We had a private lesson and by the end of the hour my son was proficient in safe AR operation and bolt disassembly/reassembly. Michael includes nuances such as tugging on the mag after loading to ensure engagement, and the psychological reason for both visual and physical inspection of an unloaded weapon. Thanks Michael!
Good material in the on-line instructor videos. Registration process is a bit clunky. Facility is convenient and they will schedule around your hours.
SAFE INSIGHT: Thank you for the input John! We recently upgraded our registration process. Unfortunately you were caught in the middle of the transition which created the "clunky" feel. We do appreciate your comments and we will continue to work to improve with every suggestion.
