TASER Civilian Training Course

Our TASER Civilian Training Course will empower you to go about your daily life knowing you have the skills and tools necessary to survive an attack. Use of an Electronic Control Device (ECD), to include TASER, is legal in Maryland and most states.  The State of Maryland requires a background check prior to the purchase of an ECD.  This course focuses on the civilian use of the TASER Pulse as a less-lethal option for self-defense. You will learn the basic mechanics of the TASER Conducted Electrical Weapon (CEW) and conduct numerous training drills during the class.

A taser exposure is NOT required to pass this course, but you are required to fire at least two live cartridges at a stationary target.
