Q: WHAT DOES EACH CLASS COVER, WHAT ARE THE GEAR REQUIREMENTS, ETC.?

A: You can read through the full course outline for each of our classes by clicking on the “Courses” tab at the top of the Home page. Each outline includes a class description, gear list, and round count. 

Q: HOW DO I SEND IN MY DEPOSIT FOR A COURSE?

A: You can submit your balance or any payment by clicking on the Paypal link on the calendar page of our website below the list of course dates. There is a drop down menu listing out some of our typical fee amounts. If you do not see your specific balance due amount listed, there is a separate link below the drop down menu that allows you to enter in any denomination. 

Q: WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AND IS HOUSING AVAILABLE ON SITE?

A: All open enrollment courses are currently being held at our Classroom location and a private range in Grant unless otherwise noted on the schedule. Specific directions are provided with the confirmation email students receive after registering for a course. This location does not offer housing or camping, but there are hotels very nearby with reasonable rates. We do offer mobile training if you have a suitable venue. 

Q: WHEN WILL YOU BE OFFERING A SPECIFIC CLASS AGAIN?

A: The course dates reflected on our Events page will always be a complete, up-to-date list of the classes we currently have open for registration. We always try to post classes three months or more in advance. As soon as a new course date is confirmed and added to the schedule we send out a course announcement email. If you would like to be added to our email list, let us know through our Suscribe link. 

Q: DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE LESSONS?

A: We do offer private lessons. Private individual lessons are $100 per hour with a 3-hour minimum and can be customized to suit your training needs. You may add up to two additional students with that single instructor for an additional $50 per hour, per student. Private group lessons for civilians are $200 per person for a full day of training with an 8-person (or $1,600) minimum. Private group lessons for agencies require custom quotes depending on the training needed and number of students. If you would like to schedule training, let us know through our Contact Us page. 

Q: IS MY DEPOSIT OR PAYMENT REFUNDABLE?

A: Deposits and payments are only refundable in the event that TotSTG cancels or postpones a course for any reason other than inclement weather. In the event of a non-weather-related cancelation, refunds will be issued minus a 5% service charge, or a student can choose to keep their full deposit/payment amount on file as a credit to be put toward a future TotSTG course. If a student needs to withdraw their registration from a course, they must do so at least one week prior to the scheduled course date. If a cancellation is received at least one week prior to the course, the student's deposit/payment can be held on file as a credit that can be put toward any future TotSTG course within 18 months. If a cancellation is received less than one week prior to the course date, the student's deposit/payment is non-refundable and cannot be held on file as a credit. If a course must be postponed or canceled due to inclement weather, all registered students' deposits/payments will be held on file as a credit to be put toward a future TotSTG course within 18 months of the original training date.  We still train in inclement weather. Train to fight, fight to win. 

Q: DO YOU OFFER CONCEALED CARRY PERMITS?

A. We do not process your application for a CCW license, however our CCW Basic Course will give you required paperwork to apply with the State of FL for your CCW license. This is the fastest way to obtain your CCW license.

Q: ARE YOU HIRING?

 A: TotSTG is not currently hiring.  We do not accept applications for employment. Please do not email us your resume.
