Basic firearm familiarization 101
*online*

VTS U now provides the introduction into the world of firearm familiarization completely online through our Basic Firearm Familiarization 101 course!  To be clear, we at VTS strongly feel that full firearm familiarization cannot be achieved unless IN PERSON instruction/training takes place in a controlled environment with one of our certified and licensed instructors, provided in the Firearm Familiarization 102 & Advanced Firearm Familiarization 103 courses, to ensure the utmost efficiency and effectiveness is achieved when dealing with something as dangerous as a firearm.  Our Basic Firearm Familiarization 101 virtual training course is the very first course in our three (3) course series for complete firearm familiarization.  The cornerstone of our firearm education academy, Basic Firearm Familiarization 101 teaches fundamental identification and nomenclature of firearm types and assemblies, from the comfort of your own home!  After primary familiarization with multiple caliber firearms, the certified and licensed instructor implements an engaging and diverse curriculum which includes virtual hands on demonstrations of safe handling, adequate and safe loading and unloading, basic safety rules, and practice in all dealings with firearms in a safe and encouraging learning environment.  A course certificate is awarded to everyone who successfully completes the online course and attains the minimum required score on the VTS U Level 1 Mastery Assessment.  This course is approximately 4 hours.

Cost:  $100 *no ammo or range fees required*

Active Shooter Response 101
*online*

Active shooter scenarios are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate response of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and prevent harm to victims. Because active shooter situations are often over before law enforcement arrives on the scene, (within 10 to 15 minutes) individuals must be prepared, both mentally and physically, to deal with an active shooter situation. Offered exclusively through our virtual learning academy, VTS U's Active Shooter Response 101 course is a four (4) hour course where we take an educational deep dive into the totality of the unfortunate active shooter scenario.  We provide a welcoming platform to discuss an otherwise uncomfortable topic in a safe environment.  With family and safety at our core, it is our utmost priority to secure the health and well being of you and your family should you be faced with a violent situation.  Our elite staff provides a premier engaging curriculum, giving you the necessary knowledge to ensure proper navigation of this high stress potential situation. 

Cost:  $75 *no firearms required for this course*

Ammo-less firearm familiarization 102
*in-pers0n*

As we remain committed to providing an experience unlike any other Firearm Education Institute, VTS has responded to the requests of THE PEOPLE by creating an elite course specifically designed for the individual who has the desire to become familiarized with firearms, but may not yet be comfortable enough to perform proficiently at the range.  This could be because of the impact discharging a live firearm has on the senses of the individual, or the negative impact ammunition discharge can have on the respiratory system, or simply not able to embrace the responsibility and stress involved with handling and firing a live firearm.   We elevate this environment of comfortability by allowing our course content to be effectively delivered in any location that has a minimum of six (6) square feet of open space.  Yes, that means that we can even give our course in the comfort of your own home *some restrictions may apply*!  After completion of our Basic Firearm Familiarization 101 course and attainment of the VTS U Level 1 Mastery Assessment Certificate, VTS U offers the premier Ammo-Less Firearm Familiarization 102 course!  During this 5 hour in person course (at a location determined during consultation), we will revisit the teaching topics covered in our 101 course for proficiency and effectiveness with hands on real time demonstration and practice with one of our highly trained VTS Tacticians.  This is done to ensure that we have key fundamentals established to alleviate the risk of firearm related incidents. We then move to the range portion of the day where you are encouraged to actively demonstrate what has been learned by firing multiple caliber firearms armed with specialized electronic ammunition at targets in a non-lethal, safe and controlled virtual range system.  Our VTS Tactician provides instructional resources to maximize firearm efficiency while allowing you to practice firing specialized electronic ammunition at one of our specialized virtual training targets.  A course certificate is awarded to those who complete the course along with the VTS U Ammo-Less Firearm Efficiency Challenge with a live firearm.

firearm familiarization 102
*in-person*

After successful completion of our Basic Firearm Familiarization 101 and attainment of the VTS U Level 1 Mastery Assessment Certificate, VTS offers the next level of interactive learning with a more engaging and immersive experience in our newly revitalized Firearm Familiarization 102 course.  During this 5 hour in person course, we will revisit the teaching topics covered in our 101 course for proficiency and effectiveness with hands on real time demonstration and practice with one of our highly trained VTS Tacticians.  This is done to ensure your utmost safety and comfortability with firearms prior to entering the range to maximize the peace of mind of all involved.  It is also done to ensure that we have key fundamentals established to alleviate the risk of firearm related incidents (which we have been able to successfully divert).  Without an effective level of comfortability and established knowledge, our experience shows that the students' focus and output is negatively impacted. After we have met the pre-range requirements, we then move to the range portion of the day where you are encouraged to actively demonstrate what has been learned by firing multiple caliber firearms at targets in a safe and controlled environment.  Our VTS Tactician provides instructional resources to maximize firearm efficiency while allowing you to practice firing live ammo at one of our standard training targets.  A course certificate is awarded to those who complete the course along with the VTS U Firearm Efficiency Challenge with a live firearm and ammunition.

We continuously improve the program to ensure that women are increasingly more comfortable and knowledgeable with firearms, which is much needed in today's society. In addition, we partner along with women who are already comfortable and knowledgeable with firearms but just want a more structured and intensive training. These women can attain their goals in a friendly environment without external stress that may hinder the success of the curriculum being implemented.  During this 5 hour in person course, we will revisit the teaching topics covered in our 101 course for proficiency and effectiveness with hands on real time demonstration and practice with one of our highly trained VTS Tacticians.  This is done to ensure your utmost safety and comfortability with firearms prior to entering the range to maximize the peace of mind of all involved.  It is also done to ensure that we have key fundamentals established to alleviate the risk of firearm related incidents (which we have been able to successfully divert).  Without an effective level of comfortability and established knowledge, our experience shows that the students' focus and output is negatively impacted.
