From beginning to end, the care, detail and attention we were shown by S.E.I. was absolutely professional. The course was catered to our exact requests, and far exceeded our expectations.

The wide array of ranges at the Sig Sauer Academy as well as the courses offered by S.E.I. will accommodate all your needs.

A one word summary for folks who are short on time with a long list of task – “Impressive”

I just returned from a condensed one week pistol/rifle course at the Sig Sauer Academy.  I am a busy guy and don’t have a lot of time to focus on any one task or subject.  I actually debated, rather or not I had five days to devote to the attendance of the Sig Academy.  In retrospect, it was the best five days of training I have ever received………..and this said with an extensive career with the US Military, with the great majority in Special Operations.

The instruction was world class and delivered by true professionals, they were extremely knowledgeable, capable and skilled in the science of firearms and the art of teaching.  The weapon drills and firing courses where uniquely developed for my small group; our assigned instructors where able to quickly evaluate our level of proficiency, build a program of instruction, and implement a professional training plan.

I left the course not only as a better shot, but also, a quicker, more accurate and efficient shooter.  I also acquired a plethora of tips, tactics and information to pass on to my students that are beginning their careers as Special Operators.
