When you seek any training, especially training that may save your life,
you should consider who is training you, their backgrounds and why they
teach the way they do! Our instructors possess a broad range
of professional backgrounds which they incorporate into every training
event. They come from our federal, state, and local law enforcement
agencies, military veterans, hunters, and competition shooters.
They are mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. They have
certifications from the FBI, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center,
the National Tactical Officers Association, and the NRA. All instructors hold
multiple NRA certifications and have a passion to help others obtain the
knowledge necessary to develop safe weapons handling skills necessary to
own and use firearms. Check out their profiles and see for yourself.
"One size does NOT fit all"
CAFT does not restrict our training to one discipline as we do not want to limit the skills our students are exposed to. We continually modify our courses blending the best practices we identify from our training, experiences, and backgrounds. We analyze incidents that effect our daily life and develop a plan that will allow you to achieve success. We view each student independently and we cater our instructions to each student to ensure they develop safe and effective skills that work for them. Our Courses are broader, more in depth and use the most advanced gear available compared to other training companies.

Ladies, are you considering training?
This was the comment made by one of our female students who has attended 4 different classes and completed our
Force on Force Scenario Only training:
"I'd also like to take the opportunity to say that in every class, lesson, scenario, I have felt that constructive criticism has been offered, very detailed analysis of the above, and I have never felt intimidated or belittled by anything that has been said to me by any instructor. I appreciate everyone and the manner in which I have been instructed and evaluation has been offered! I do believe that some women might be intimidated by firearms instruction in general, and should not be, especially by y'all." Donna K.
Our Training for Church Security Teams utilizes the StressVest System on the actual Church grounds.
Security training consist of site evaluation, development and review of policies and procedures, situational awareness training and trauma training. We complete training with scenarios in YOUR facility utilizing the StressVest Training System. It allows simulated live fire using blanks. The weapons fire and cycle like an actual handgun, however there is no projectile. A laser emits to show accurate hits with a vibration or penalty notification in any environment without potential damage to the surroundings. Only StressVest allows engagement through a glass which is NOT possible using Simunitions or Airsoft. No special gear is required which allows for a more realistic response from both the student and role players.

We are the only Training Group in the Southeast that offers Stressvest® Training System.
The StressVest® system is the most advanced force on force training system available - it is the world’s first non-projectile, force on force, firearm tactical training system capable of creating stress through a pain penalty without fear of projectile injury for training law enforcement, military, security and corrections officers and civilians around the world. The system utilizes training firearms that fire a laser pulse which activates the StressVest® when it strikes center mass. Depending on the setting, the vest will either deliver a vibration or a safe, localized shock to the abdomen.
