“Excellent and Professional Class”

 “I decided it was time to get my instructor's certification, and chose Bernard based on the web description and testimonials as you find here. It was a great decision! Bernard did a fantastic job! He is extremely knowledgeable, an enthusiastic and attentive trainer, and he kept things entertaining but serious as befits the subject. I highly recommend this program!”

“I have taken several Instructor courses from Bernard and they have all exceeded expectations.”

"As a law enforcement officer for 25 years and Soldier from 28 years I have attended a lot of training. The courses I have received from Safe N Secure provided added depth to my instructor teaching style."

“Superb education and training experience are the standards at Safe N Secure”

"As a Master Instructor and as the company Instructor Development Coordinator, I encouraged our entire instructor cadre to attend this course as taught by Bernard Martinage. My senior and emerging instructors received more than NRA courseware indoctrination—Bernard’s skill as a professional educator significantly increased retention off NRA subject matter and improved instructor efficacy among my team of instructors.  Sierra Hotel!!"

“These Guys Rock!”

"I have taken every courses that Safe N Secure offers.   For me that has meant multiple 8 hour drives each way but the training that they offer is absolutely worth it.   ​If you want to be the best then train with the best".

“A Personal Thank You!”

"In my professional career both within the military as well as the outside world with a publicly traded company I have never enjoyed a training as much as I did yours, especially combined with the knowledge that I took away from it.   I hope to see in the near future as an industry partner. Should there ever be anything I can do to assist either of you please do not hesitate to ask."

“Excellent Training Brings New Opportunities”

"As a lifelong educator and someone passionate about shooting, becoming an instructor seemed like a natural progression. Not only did this class improve my skills with firearms, it strengthened my confidence both as a shooter and a teacher. When I doubted myself, Bernard and David did not and set the bar high with expectations for me to achieve. Since this class, I have continued seeking new opportunities and have become certified as a Range Safety Officer, Personal Protection in the Home, and Refuse to Be a Victim. I am doing private lessons of all the above as well as Conceal Carry Classes and have been the trainer at 2 different gun shops in the area. This class opened new horizons and gave me new opportunities to share my excitement and passion for firearms. I highly recommend it and cannot wait to take more classes!!"

“I Enjoyed this class and the way it was taught”

 “I was happy to find that the Instructor (Bernard) takes his role as a trainer very seriously. We put in some long hours but I felt that the experience and information was worth every minute and every penny. In my 30 years of Law Enforcement I have had few courses this challenging and. this much fun!”

"The presentation of the Learning Objectives were both fun and serious. Bernard and David have a different style of delivery which makes for a dynamic and interesting course. Teachers who will challenge you constantly. Filled with examples and anecdotes. Lengthy yet worthwhile. Time and money well spent. Achieve your goals while having fun!"
