FAQs

Can I Tour Your Facility? 

We are not currently offering tours; however, signing up for our CCW course is a great way to see the facility.

Can WOFT Staff Refuse To Train Me?

We reserve the right to refuse training to anyone for any reason. Further, it is our policy to not train anyone under the influence of drugs and alcohol. This is to ensure the safety of you, the other participants, as well as our staff.

Why Do I Need To Sign A Waiver?

Our waiver process ensures that you understand the risks involved in taking our training, and that we are not held liable for any injuries or illnesses incurred. We also need to make sure that attendees understand our cancellation policy and that they are held liable for class fees cancelled within a specific timeframe.

Do You Offer Discounts?

Due to the high-quality training that we provide and the great costs associated with offering our courses, we do not offer discounts of any type.

What If I Have No Prior Experience With Scenario Training Or Firearms?

No prior training is required for our classes, and while firearms are the best force multiplier, they are not the primary focus – learning to think our way out of a potential situation is. We focus first on learning to avoid situations, work our way up from a flashlight (that you can carry anywhere), introduce safety concepts, and then allow the ability to test those concepts in real-time.

Why Do I Need A Background Check?

Background check is required to participate in training. This process helps to assure the safety of our staff and other participants. We use this information to ensure that you are who you claim to be and that you are free of any major criminal charges. Through our training programs, we bring numerous people from all different backgrounds together and put them in high-intensity situations. This is why we must take all proper precautions to make the safety of our staff and other participants a #1 priority.

Will Food Be Provided?

1-3 day Scenario Courses: Breakfast, lunch, snacks and refreshments will be provided daily.

Concealed Carry Course and Private Training sessions: Snacks and Refreshments will be provided. 

Can I Come To Observe Without Being A Class Attendee?

Of course! The cost is $250 per day per guest to watch a friend or family member take part in one of our courses. A Background Check is required. Liability waivers are required for each guest on the property, whether they are observing or training. We prefer friends of friends and family members to observe as one learns a lot simply by watching.

What Is The Address To The Training Facility?

Training facility is located West, about an hour from the Orlando International Airport. Due to the safety of our guests and staff, we have to approve your registration and background check first, then you will receive an email with the training facility's address. 

Where Should I Stay If I Am Not From The Area?

After your registration is complete, WOFT emails you three options of hotels in the surrounding area that are miles within the facility. 

 

Can I Bring My Own Firearm For Training?

Yes, you can, but are not required to bring in order to train with us. WOFT will provide a firearm if you choose to train with one of ours. If you would like to bring your personal firearm it is to stay locked in your vehicle until your Firearms Instructor informs you to bring it to the range. At which point will be inspected by WOFT staff prior to use, to make sure the firearm functions properly and is in working condition. WOFT reserves the right to deny usage of a firearm if it will not be able to safely function during a class; alternative firearms will be offered for usage.

What Kind Of Holster Do I Need To Bring?

All holsters need to be some type of rigid plastic/kydex material. No leather, or soft material holsters. No inside the waistband appendix, or inside the waistband holsters are allowed during live fire training*. Outside the waistband holsters only. WOFT reserves the right to deny usage of a holster if it does not meet requirements for safe range operation during a class; alternative holsters and/or firearms will be offered for usage.

*Only during specific Concealed Carry classes are inside the waistband appendix holsters allowed.

Do I Need To Bring Ammo?

1-3 day courses no, WOFT has an inventory of many different calibers of ammunition. After your registration is approved, we will verify if you would like to train with a WOFT or personal firearm so staff can ensure that there is a current inventory of the caliber you wish to use.

Private training sessions yes, unless you would like to purchase ammo on site at market price. 

NO steel ammo is allowed. WOFT reserves the right to deny usage of ammo if it does not meet requirements for safe range operation during a class; alternative ammo and/or firearms will be offered for usage.
