Effective January 1, 2003 Trident Concepts, LLC students are responsible for all reasonable range fees. We are forced to do this in order to keep our class registration fees the same. The alternative would be to raise our class registration fees to compensate for higher range fees, which seems unfair since some ranges charge less than others and we don’t want everyone to be affected. We will coordinate for each location the appropriate range fee and payment arrangements, but in general the range fee will not be more than $50.00 per student for a two day course (other course subject to higher or lower fees). We apologize for the inconvenience, but feel it is the best option for all parties.
Please be aware that airline logistics and other modes of mass transportation are becoming very time consuming and difficult, so please plan accordingly. We are not responsible for logistics mishaps, such as but not limited to missed flights, inclement weather, mechanical problems or late departures.

The certificate is 50% of the class registration fee and is not transferable to anyone other than the listed party. This certificate is good for any other course of equal or lesser level we provide and at any other location.
