But for those who are extremely busy, and will actually read and absorb the material, this is a great course for them, too.



Winston is always available to answer questions in a timely manner, and very professional.



Scheduling the range time is very easy, and he is very flexible.

Artemis is pretty good, IMO. They do a 16-hour course spread over two days. The cost was a little over two hundred dollars, plus ammo.
I first went to an Artemis Pre-CCW class and thought it was thorough. The instructor for that class was Steven Lieberman, a lawyer who handles CCW-related cases almost exclusively. His wife is the owner of Artemis, but he teaches some parts of their classes. I was on the fence, but after talking with him I decided to apply, and I signed up for the weekend class at Artemis.
Someone I know took a CCW class from another well-known instructor, and what was described to me seemed mind-numbing. The instructor was dead tired, and it showed; he was reading Powerpoint slides to the class like they were too dumb to read for themselves. Not only boring, but insulting, and probably useless.
The CCW class at Artemis has a few different instructors. Steven Lieberman did part, and other parts were handled by his wife (Sandy) and other instructors (all retired LEOs and/or ex-military). I have a short attention span, so I appreciate when a class is interesting and lively. At the end of our first day, one of the students went into the simulator (the 300-degree VirTra with five screens) and did a scenario. It was very interesting and thought-provoking to watch this. You can see the scenario if you search for "survive+thrive pistol training artemis" on YouTube.
Artemis offers a collateral benefit if you get CCW training there, in the form of a reduced-cost membership. This gets you access to group classes and a limited amount of time in their simulator (a 300-degree VirTra with five screens arrayed like a hexagon). If any other trainers are offering a similar deal, I'd be interested to know.

Any idea how long it takes to mail the course completion certificate? My wife is doing live fire tomorrow and her permit expires next week. Everything has been completed with OCSD, just haven't had time to get to the range.

Thanks,

I have simplified the enrollment process for the free CCW class i offer (described at http://guntrust.org).

Also, I'm offering a free basic estate plan to anyone that attends my CCW class.

Plus i even pay for range time at your live fire test.

And you can get virtually unlimited free training at Front Sight, just by attending my free estate planning seminars.

Everything you need to protect your family!

Default Excellent training at Artemis Defense Institute in Lake Forest

I did my training with Artemis the weekend of 10/27-28. I thought it was well worth it.

The classroom instruction was not death by powerpoint, but with real world examples and cases that the instructor, Steve Lieberman, handled. As mentioned in previous posts, he's an attorney with a focus on firearm related litigation.

Come to think of it, I don't even think they have a projector in the classroom!

We're all avid shooters on here, and passing the shooting qualifications and firearm manipulations under stress is something we all understand.

The true value, in my humble opinion, is from the expert perspective from an actual firearm/justification on use of force/self defense attorney. We all know, or you better know, that once the threat is stopped and the smoke clears, that is when the REAL battle starts.

Another positive vote for Artemis. Took mine there a couple weeks ago. I intend to go back for some more of their classes too.

Steven has a good speaking style, keeps you interested in the subjects and he covers quite a bit of info. The rest of the team was great too. Overall pretty good experience and worth the money IMO.
