What Our Students are Saying...
Student feedback is one of the most important tools for becoming a better instructor. We solicit course evaluations after every class and look at all student reviews as a way to improve our craft here at II Alpha.
This is a great class if you are looking to acquire a conceal carry permit. The instructor was very thorough in all aspects of the course. I would highly recommend Michael Graulich as your instructor.
II Alpha Training is a great Concealed Carry training program. Michael Graulich cares about the individual on the areas that matter: Safety during the class, and outside the class, Making sure they pass the exam and understanding the material. But is it more than that. He encourages the students to continue their training after the class and offers additional training opportunities. He is cost effective and cost aware. He will advise ways to save money but still get your practicing experience and skills up to par. Those in the Responsibly Armed community KNOW that you can’t take a Concealed Carry class & Get the Concealed Carry License and never pick up a gun (until you need it) and be safe (meaning accurate or effective) when it will really matter. He tries to educate those that might think otherwise.
Michael is a very knowledgeable instructor that’s passionate about what he does. My son and I learned a lot and had a great time!
