Safariland Training Group Logo


The Safariland Training Academy employs a team of highly experienced instructors – most of whom are current or former law enforcement – who bring real-world experience and expertise to every Safariland training course. Thousands of law enforcement, military and security personnel have elevated their skills and knowledge in courses ranging from less lethal and baton training to patrol and tactical training. Our programs are designed to sharpen the professionals’ physical and strategic skills, bringing real-life scenarios and tools to every training course to provide the skills and confidence to counter real-life situations.

Our programs are fully customizable based on an agency’s needs, experiences, expectations and operations. Both single-operator and instructor-level courses are availalbe. In the instructor-level courses, participants become certified to teach the course to their own officers.

Drew’s passion and dedication were a driving force! I’ve been to other classes and this was by far the most intense/informative class ever! Will most definitely recommend course and will be back myself! Monadnock® Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) Instructor Course
The course opened up a whole new outlook to the Use-of-Force model for me as an officer. It was well taught and easy to follow. The instructor was knowledgeable of the course content. I would recommend this course to any and all officers. Great course! Use of Force Insturctor Course
I thoroughly enjoyed not only being shown/told how to do new drills but being able to shoot them myself. The amount of trigger time provided me with the ability to see how the techniques being taught can positively affect shooters, as I saw an increase in my own abilities. Firearms Instructor – Pistol Course
I can’t say enough positive things about this course and the instructors. This class was a challenge and was enjoyable at the same time. Truly talented and gifted instructors! Thanks for all you do! Shoot House Instructor Course
