CTA's goal is to have all of our students' progress to the  point that they are competent and confident with the new skills they have gained in our introductory Handgun 101 course , Basic Pistol or 1st+. This is the point where advanced skills for concealed carry are introduced.

New students, who have just gone through our version of Handgun 101 need reinforcement to insure that what they have learned has “stuck” and that they are training correctly. More advanced students, need the same type of reinforcement, but at a different level.

Handgun 201 will insure that they are progressing, practicing correctly and in addition provide them with new skills. This is why we are so excited about this program. It is the successor to our confidence builder class but adds in the additional training. Make no mistake - this is defensive pistol training and will introduce you to self-defense skills by using a combination of the USCCA's & CTA's training methods.
