Level 1 Firearms Training, LLC
RE: Corona Virus Restrictions
Level 1 is taking the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously and your safety is our first priority. Because of the uncertaintly surrounding the virus, nationwide "stay-in-place" orders, and non-essential meeting restrictions, please be patient with us as we strive to accommodate these new safety guidelines.
We understand there is still a demand for basic safety training. Level 1 has released Online Learning courses for pistol, rifle, and concealed carry to fill this need . These courses can be done completely from home for personal knowledge or expanded to include in-person shooting lessons when available for added skill value, certification, or license. See our "Online Learning" tab for additional information.
Please see important information below on how the coronavirus is affecting student classes and what Level 1 is doing to keep us all safe.
Note that in person courses may need to be rescheduled due to the crisis if warranted. In these cases, Level 1 will make every effort to reschedule these training events as soon as government restrictions are lifted.
We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during these trying times. We are all in this together and want everyone to stay safe and healthy.

ABOUT LEVEL 1
Level 1 Firearms Training, LLC has been providing firearm education to the public since 2012. Our mission has always been to educate and development more responsible gun owners and trainers. Our business is open. We will continue this mission by providing courses within safety guidelines now and will continue training in communities across our country well after this crisis is over.
Level 1 takes your health and safety very seriously and is making every effort to accommodate current Covid-19 guidelines.
On March 16, 2020 the President of the United States recommended limiting groups to 10 or less to minimize corona virus transmission. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/03.16.20_coronavirus-guidance_8.5x11_315PM.pdf.
This greatly limits the class size allotted. Some of the courses scheduled already have more than 10 student registered (plus instructor) and will need to be reworked to fall within these guidelines.
Level 1 will be limiting all student registrations to 10 students or less until government guidelines are ammended.
Also many cities/counties are requiring a under 5 to a group rule to deter meetings and virus transmission. Our company will have to be aware of these restrictions and possibly reschedule courses to a later date.
Because of these government safety guidelines many shooting ranges, conference rooms, and sporting goods stores can not host our training events at this time. Many xisting classes will need to be changed to another venue if available or rescheduled to a later dates.
A six foot rule has also been adopted to keep people at more than arms length from eachother.
Level 1 will make every effort to place students 6 feet apart within a classroom and range setting. Depending on the size of the classroom, this may not be an option and an alternate location or date would need to be scheduled.
This would limit NRA coach/pupil training techniques and group teaching taught during instructor courses.
The government also recomments schooling from home to limit exposure.
Level 1 recently adding Online Learning options to our curriculum for those who want to learn basic firearms training and concealed carry concepts from home. This will include imited number of NRA student safety classes. NRA Instructor certification courses can not be taught online at this time.
On April 2, 2020 the CDC recommended that all individuals where a mask and gloves while in public to prevent virus transmission https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html.
Students are encouraged to bring their own masks and gloves to class. Additional non latex gloves will also be available during class (when available).
Disinfacting wipes, hand sanitizer, and antibacterial soap, and/or disinfecting spray (when available) will be provided in the classroom for your safety.
Masks and gloves limit the ability of students to demonstrate skill and communicate knowledge in a classroom environment. This factor will need to be taken into consideration for courses.
"Non-Essential" Business Restrictions. https://abcnews.go.com/Health/states-shut-essential-businesses-map/story?id=69770806
46 or more states have restricted "non-essential" businesses. Level 1 falls within these guidelines and will accomodate or reschedule courses on an as needed basis. Thank you for your understanding under these circumstances.
Government Guideline Extensions may happen.
As seen this month, citizens were asked to stay at home 15 days to limit exposure to the Coronavirus and then recently 30 days. No one knows when this crisis will be over. Level 1 will do its best to keep on top of schedule announcements and accomodations for the benefit of our students.
Our student's health and safety if our priority. Students that show any illness symptoms and/or fever are prohibited from attending courses and must notify Level 1 as soon as possible. Level 1 has the right and responsibility to ask students showing symptoms to leave the class for the savety of all students. Level 1 encourages students to use hand sanitizer each time they enter the classroom. Level 1 asks that masks be kept on until students have been seated.
