Click the title of the Advanced Courses below to preview what each one covers.

Classes are listed in the order most people take each class, but it is not necessary for your students to finish one course before participating in another with the exception of the student having participated in a Basic Handgun Safety Course.

These courses are excellent "next step" advanced courses for students who have participated in a state approved course to apply for a permit to carry a firearm for personal protection.

SFWA's Advanced Courses have been attended by many of the more than 10,000 students who have taken SFWA Handgun Safety Classes in the last few years in pursuit of a permit to carry a firearm for personal protection!

Each course has been fine-tuned and tested to meet the needs of students in content as well as being interesting and informative for different levels of experience.

The course curriculum is detailed and organized to make presentation easy and understandable.

Most importantly, it really is NOT about pink—SFWA Advanced Courses are specifically designed to be used to teach either men or women!
Actually, men enjoy attending SFWA courses with the women in their lives.

(Remember, you must be
"Softer Side of Shooting" Certified before being permitted to pursue Certification to teach the Advanced Courses—Instructors with Handgun Carry Permit Instructor Credentials in any state will be permitted to take the prerequisite certification online prior to attending the Advanced Courses Certification—whether you are pursuing one or all of the available courses. Otherwise, you must do so in person.)

This target is the result of the performance of one SFWA Certified Instructor Graduate
shooting a 45 caliber handgun into the hole of the previous SFWA Certified Instructor Graduate on the same target by
quickly picking up the handgun, focusing and firing!

SFWA Instructor Certification courses
are designed to bring out the best
in the instructor, which ultimately brings
out the best in the students—one of the
reasons SFWA University students do so well!
