Arena Training Group is a combat veteran-owned training and consulting company located in North Central Pennsylvania. We specialize in Critical Skills curriculum development and training. We define Critical Skills as higher-risk skills and topics such as law enforcement training, tactics and firearms skills and techniques, emergency response, firefighting and rescue topics, survival training, family security and preparedness, and other similar topics. As our mission statement says, our goal is to provide Critical Skills Education and Consulting of the highest quality, that's affordable for our current and future customers.
We recognize that men and women learn differently and we strive to make learning a critical skill enjoyable and non-intimidating. We offer fun, low-stress classes that ladies can attend with friends or by themselves, knowing that they will be with other like-minded women in a no-pressure, non-intimidating environment.
Drawing on our law enforcement and military training and experience, we bring you some of the best training available in North Central Pennsylvania. We are one of the region's only sources of a MPOETC-approved LE Pistol Instructor Course. Many of our courses are MPOETC approved for CLEE credit. We also conduct retired law enforcement firearms qualifications.
We take credibility seriously. Unlike many instructors who attend one training class to get the title of "firearms instructor" and then never attend another class, we continue our training through advanced classes and constant training. We also know the importance of adult education theory and implement that methodology into our instruction. We don't just tell you what to do on the range, we bring our guns to class and demonstrate each drill and explain why those drills are important before you are asked to perform them. That includes retired and active LE qualification courses. Lastly, we welcome the opportunity to show you our resume and certifications.
