Private & Customized Classes

In addition to our standard curriculum, Citizens Safety Academy is always willing to customize coursework for particular individuals, groups, events, locales, or occasions. If you’re interested in a specific area of instruction that you haven’t seen on our website, please don’t hesitate to ask about it. With a little collaboration and planning, we can most likely design a specialty course tailored for your exact needs. And if you’re not in the Nashville area, we can bring our classes to you. Below are just a few of the services we can customize to clients’ specifications.

Private and semi-private classes are available for individuals, couples, families, or groups. Tell us the goals you want to accomplish during your private training, and we’ll do our very best to make certain you attain them. Private training is the best way to learn safe gun handling for beginning, intermediate, or advanced shooters. It allows students to learn in a focused, intimate setting with minimal distractions. One-on-one attention creates a positive and comfortable environment that is conducive to steep learning curves and rapid results.

Occasionally, we offer our standard courses in a “ladies only” format. We understand that training with a bunch of men can sometimes be intimidating, especially if they are much more familiar with firearms than you are. We provide a relaxed and comfortable environment where women can learn on their own terms and be safe and confident handling any weapon. In addition to building confidence, shooting can be lots of fun! For those who prefer this format, our Ladies Only classes allow women to enjoy the experience a lot more without fear of being judged.

Do you check your smoke detector once a year? It’s a great precaution to take. But how often do you test your home for security weaknesses? Did you know that you are much more likely to be hurt by someone breaking into your house than by a residential fire? Based on recent numbers from the U.S. Fire Administration and the Bureau of Justice Statistics, burglaries that escalate to violence are more than 22 times more common that residential fire injuries. With that in mind, wouldn’t it be a good idea to periodically double check your home security, just like you check your smoke alarms?

A Home Security Audit is great way to decrease the likelihood of your home being targeted for criminal activity. Minimizing the chances of burglary or home invasion (and being prepared in case one does occur) could save your life. As a service to our students, we can provide an on-site home security audit of your residence or private business. The audit involves a full inspection of your home, including windows, doors, and other possible points of entry. We will cover lots of topics during the audit, identify strengths and possible vulnerabilities, and answer any questions you may have. We can also help you design a safe room, draft emergency plans, configure an alarm system, secure phone lines, and much more.

The audit usually takes about two hours (depending on the size and condition of the home), at the end of which you are provided with a detailed report and a checklist of suggestions to improve security. The audit also comes with an NRA Refuse to be a Victim Student Packet, which is a great resource for increasing safety at home, at work, in your car, while you travel, and more.

Are you curious about one of our classes but looking for options in a more condensed format? Would you like an extra module on a topic not normally covered? Are you seeking more advanced or specialized training? Or maybe a scaled-down version for teenagers or college students? Perhaps you’re more interested in hunting, sport shooting, or competition training. Whatever piques your interest beyond our standard course offerings, let us design a custom class just for you or your group. Just give us a call or send us an email, and we would be happy to discuss your needs and do our best to accommodate them. If we can’t provide what you’re looking for, we’ll help you find someone who can.

Do you live outside of the Nashville area but still want to train with Citizens Safety Academy? Excellent. If you can’t come to us, we would love to bring our services to you. Hosting a CSA course is a lot easier than most people think. As long as your locale has a suitable range and classroom space, we can conduct a class just like we would anywhere else. All it takes is a few students who are ready and willing to invest in the course, and we can make it happen.

We travel for all our standard CSA and NRA courses, as well as for private and custom courses. We also welcome opportunities to speak at gun clubs, community events, and panel discussions on the Second Amendment, gun safety, self-defense, crime prevention, or issues involving the interplay between guns and race, religion, urban environments, or pop culture. To learn more about opportunities to bring CSA to your hometown, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
