Training for law enforcement & security professionals
Our Training Services
Four solutions for all your investigative needs.
MATC's firearms instructors are all current or former law enforcement/military members with specialized firearms instructor credentials. Our training concepts are simple, understand the goals of our students (individual or group), and tailor training courses to their needs/goals from basic to advanced.
We are not competition shooting coaches, but instead focus on private citizens, licensed security officers, and commissioned law enforcement officers who are looking to enhance their individual shooting skills. We can create a shooting curriculum for you, or you can select one of our core firearms programs to enhance your shooting experience.
