USCCA Defensive Shooting Fundamentals 
USCCA Basic and Advanced Skills

A number of basic and advanced skills designed to take your skill level beyond the building blocks introduced in Lesson Three, and dramatically elevate your speed, accuracy, and enjoyment at the range.

USCCA Developing a Personal and Home Protection Plan

Developing a personal & home protection plan is a key component of not only preparing for how we should (or might) react if confronted by a violent crime, but also how we might avoid violent crime in the first place. Within this lesson, Michael Martin explains that developing a protection plan is about much more than becoming proficient with a firearm or writing up a home invasion plan. It’s a plan that must encompass awareness, avoidance, and preparation, so that we’re less likely to find ourselves in a situation where we have no other option than to use our firearm, rather than more likely

USCCA Violent Encounters and The Aftermath

This lesson explains what physical and mental reactions may occur when a human undergoes extreme stress, such as during an incident involving deadly force. It also explains what you should do immediately after using force to defend yourself. Also, when law enforcement arrives, it is crucial that you conduct yourself in the correct manner and prepare yourself for the consequences, even when you are in the right.

USCCA Real Estate Agent Safety

Real estate agents face a high risk of violent encounters in the workplace, more so than many other professions. Which is why the USCCA has developed a highly specific Mini-Class to address this reality. WHAT REAL ESTATE AGENTS WILL LEARN THROUGH THE 55 MINUTE REAL ESTATE AGENT SAFETY & SELF-DEFENSE MINI-CLASS: - How to identify job-related activities that put agents at risk of an attack. - Situational Awareness: Teach students the finer points of tuning into their environment, helping them avoid a potentially violent encounter. - Commonly used cell phone safety features and apps that can be used to keep agents safe. - Legal use-of-force: What criteria must be met before an agent can use reasonable or deadly force – and the consequences that might follow. - Defensive Options: Armed, unarmed and less lethal.
