Hi, my name is Andrea! AK Virtual Arms Training LLC is my firearms academy. I am a female Certified Firearms Instructor who also has a variety of other relevant certifications and experience, including having worked for NASA on the Space Shuttle Program some years back! I was a Scout once and understand how important successful female role models are. I am in a position to uniquely offer young people, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and home school gun classes the challenging growth opportunities that extend far beyond them finishing any of the classes we offer. We have a strong focus on childrens firearms safety and follow the NRA and Operation Child Safe guidelines at our East Tennessee location in Wears Valley. We are already approved for several Girl Scout programs, we are happy to work with the Boy Scouts to establish a program with them also, with a male or a female Instructor.
Eddie Eagle is the most, "hands off" of childrens firearms safety programs. Parents also participate in this particular home school gun class in a separate room where we review information such as locking guns up, how to talk to other parents, etc. Parents are an active part of our firearms safety program, they receive goodies and gun locks from Operation Child Safe; there are no additional fees required for parents to participate.
