Active Shooter & Red Cross CPR/AED & First Aid Training

Church Security is more than just a dedicated team to handle Active Shooters.  The entire congregation should have the Attitude, Ability, & Awareness to respond appropriately in the case of an Active Shooter or any other emergency. Our Instructors can work with your congregation through an online and classroom curriculum to help your church members be better prepared. 

Tier One

Boondocks Firearms Training Academy™ is committed to providing your Church Security Team the most advanced training available to help you prepare for an emergency in your church. Mississippi State law requires every member of a Church Security Team to be (1) Documented in writing by the governing body of the church (2) Have a valid MS Firearms Permit, and (3) Have an Enhanced Carry (IC) Endorsement. 

In addition to Enhanced Carry classes, we also offer custom programs including on-site evaluations, advanced firearms training, active shooter training, and shooting re-certifications. 

Our tiered approach allows you to tailor your curriculum to meet both your budget and security needs.
