CAR System

We offer three separate live fire CAR courses. Each course is offered with either Civilian or Law Enforcement/Military as its core techniques.

* Contact us for specifics on eligibility and prerequisites *

2 Day
CAR for End Users

This is our most basic CAR live fire course. Prerequisites include a strong handle of firearms safety principles and a willingness to learn.

3 Day
Intermediate CAR

This course adds a third day onto our 2 day CAR course. You can take this course without having taken the 2 day CAR course first. The third day of training offers many more drills and integration exercises.

5 Day
Basic Instructor

This course is our basic CAR instructor course. Many people choose this as their intro CAR course even if they are not looking to be a certified instructor as it offers the most training. There is mandatory post course work to receive Basic CAR Instructor certification.

"Jeff Johnsgaard is one of the best instructors I have ever had the privilege of training under. I highly recommend learning Jeff's integrated view on how the CAR System fits within more traditional shooting techniques. . . I recommend Jeff Johnsgaard’s services to anyone – whether they be military, law enforcement, or a responsible armed citizen – who carries a handgun for personal protection."
