Citizens' Defense Academy (CDA) with locations in Gallia County, OH, and Tioga County, PA was founded to provide training and education in firearms safety and marksmanship for both beginner and experienced shooters.
Additional training available to citizens emphasizes personal preparedness for everyday situations from violent encounters to natural disasters.
Classes presented at CDA are constantly updated and modified to keep up with current local and global threats and events.
CDA also provides basic and advanced instruction for the certification and professional development of private security personnel following state and federal regulations, as well as the most current security trends.
Citizens’ Defense Academy’s Instructor Cadre is made up of currently certified NRA, USCCA, Law Enforcement, and Military Fire-arms Instructors. Their backgrounds ranging from the military, private security, law enforcement, and corporate America are brought to the forefront in every class they teach.
Specialty courses are taught by Contract Instructors who are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in their fields, bringing you the most up-to-date and pertinent information and training.
Whether you are looking for training in self-defense, lethal or less-than-lethal tactics, first-aid/self-aid, emergency preparedness, or travel and home safety, you will receive comprehensive instruction and learn how and where to employ what you have learned without draining your savings account.
