About us

SSI is a Veteran owned company and has been training officers for 15 years giving quality DPS approved classes to many officers from the Valley, Tucson and surrounding areas of Arizona. SSI training philosophy is simple... It is based on making sure that the curriculum for our classes is not only in compliance with the with the NRA and Arizona State laws but, it's presented in interesting and interactive way.  Students in our classes not only learn but they enjoy the classes!

In the near future, we will also be adding a tactical weapons class that will give an overview of the M-4 rifle and Basic Rifle Marksmanship. We will also be adding a "Basic weapons Introduction" class that will teach those that would like a basic overview of use, laws and safety of weapons and using them. 

Our instructors will make sure you understand the material and are able to properly apply the information you learn!
