​​​​     The minimum requirement to become a Self Defense Act firearms instructor in Oklahoma is a rudimentary 16-hour class.  No training or experience in criminal or civil law is necessary for certification, though that is a substantial part of the SDA curriculum. The lead instructor at Defensive Training Services has 700 hours of formal firearms / instructor training and decades law enforcement experience.  We offer the state-mandated concealed carry class as well as more advanced training.  DTS offers professional instruction in an environment where customer service comes second only to safety. DTS is licensed and bonded.  

​     ​Already have your concealed carry license?  DTS offers a proprietary Concealed Carry Concepts course.  

      We also have Introduction to Handguns classes where new or prospective gun owners can learn about firearms function and safety.  

      Do you want to avoid the crowd and have a more private training experience?  DTS will provide any of our classes for small groups for an up-charge.  Call or email for additional information.
