During the 2-day Level-2 class, class members will spend most of the time on the range working on intermediate handgun, marksmanship and tactical skills, and complete the Colorado POST qualification in handgun proficiency test.

At FASTER Colorado, we never want the lack of budget in a school or district to keep a school staff member from this life-saving training. Partial scholarships may be available to other participants.
If you are chosen to participate, you will attend an intensive 3-day or 2-day class where you will learn many of the same skills and tactics used by law enforcement. Your instructors will include professional law enforcement personnel with extensive knowledge of active shooter situations, and other first responders. You will leave this class physically and mentally exhausted, but those who have participated agree that it is a wonderful experience and life changing class.
