Keep your 2nd Amendment Rights!

Your second amendment rights are taken very seriously.  However, with that right comes the responsibility to discharge your firearm effectively, legally, safely, and while maintaining a good moral compass. Knowing how to safely and effectively handle your firearm at the moment when you are in danger, to protect yourself and your loved ones only comes with education and hands-on training.

Here at C4SEM Academy, we provide a comfortable and friendly atmosphere where you can participate in class training.  Our team of instructors is highly trained in their craft and possesses a high degree of experience.  In addition to our in-class training, we also offer hands-on practical training at various training ranges in the DC/MD/VA (DMV) area.  Our trainers are flexible about the training location and try their best to accommodate locations' requests for hands-on training within the DMV area.  See directly below our current list of training offerings with descriptions and the course schedule for actual class dates.

Your registration for any civilian and sponsored NRA classes in our facilities includes course material, books, breakfast, and lunch.
