Shooters MUST participate in a class and receive certification from one of our certified trainers prior to drawing from the holster. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS! ALL shooters MUST have the certification on file with Compass Training Center.

The curriculum is designed for beginner, intermediate or advanced shooters. Our training staff will spend up to three hours with shooters to qualify them for the “Draw From the Holster Certification.” Those shooters possessing CURRENT Military or Local, State or Federal Law Enforcement credentials will be exempt from paying for the certification course but will still be required to be certified by one of our trainers.

The following types of holsters and carry positions will be certified.

HOLSTERS: A quality holster in good condition and of proper fitment for the handgun used is required (subject to our trainer’s inspection). Holsters made specifically for the make and model of hand gun used is HIGHLY encouraged but “Universal” fit holsters are acceptable after the trainer’s inspection. Holsters made of leather, Kydex, plastic and nylon are acceptable.
Our training staff RSO’s have the final approval of any holster used on the range.

The following types of holster carry positions will be certified:
From the waistband dominate shooting side – From the 12 o’clock position (appendix) to the 4 o’clock position. Ankle carry will also be certified.
