We are regularly joined by additional instructors with expertise in firearms training, emergency medical, and self-defense law. Our adjunct instructors’ backgrounds include active and prior service in military, law enforcement, and emergency medical services, including combat deployments, SWAT, and TEMS (tactical medical operations).
Part of Cold Frontier’s mission is to continually improve and expand the quality of training we offer to citizens in our community. We believe in presenting our students with a variety of perspectives from reputable instructors with backgrounds, teaching methodology, and philosophies that harmonize with our own. From time to time we will offer classes led by guest instructors from respected training organizations, as well as collaborative courses involving co-instruction with trainers from inside and outside of Alaska.
