I took my CCW renewal class through STAG and received great classroom and field instruction. The instructor Al is a retired federal law enforcement officer who has federal level training experience and provided great instruction. I liked it so much, I recently took a tracking course through STAG in the Sierra Nevada foothills. It was a day long class that focused on law enforcement style tracking techniques. The staff in this company all have 20-30+ year federal level backgrounds. STAG is definitely not your run of the mill training and I’m blown away by the knowledge and level of instruction. Tim, the owner is a great guy and through his own experience in military and law enforcement has built an amazing curriculum here. Being a longtime outdoorsman, I have learned quite a few new and useful skills by taking just a couple training courses through STAG. Highly rated.
The all day tracking class offered at River Ridge Ranch in Springville was interesting, informative and well paced. The instructors were expert trackers and also experienced trainers. They took time to explain and demonstrate tracking techniques yet kept the class moving along and kept the group engaged in discussion or activity all day. I was fascinated by the stories tracks can tell. I will definitely take another class with STAG and have already recommended it to others.
The one day class is exceptional. It is a full day and covers introductory tracking methods then advances into search and rescue and law enforcement techniques and uses. The instructors explain and demonstrate each method then work with each student as they actively participate individually or as a team member. Day and night scenarios are provided. The instructors have military and/or law enforcement experience and are highly qualified. Definitely a great class and I would recommend it for civilian or law enforcement training.
The ccw instruction and training was far more than just ccw. We learned how to reload, rack and shoot with one hand. Run while shooting to cover both right and left handed and so so much more. The instructors, al and Tim were very knowledgeable and professional and ensured everyone’s safety throughout. It was a terrific class. Will certainly take follow up classes.
Al De La Cruz did an amazing job with training. He was informative and patient. He taught the class tactical defense techniques and prepared us all for most defensive situations. I highly recommend his class, you will not be disappointed!!!
Training beyond what was expected. The trainer was very thorough, obtaining a CCW is a huge responsibility. These people take a lot of care to not only make sure you’re legally aware but technically aware. I highly recommend this company if you want to obtain a CCW certification.
I was referred to Sierra Technical Group for my CCW permit training and met Al. Al was able to find accommodations to be able to certify me at Lemoore Sportsmans club. He is very prompt and responds quickly to arranging the session. When we finally met he was so professional and gave a very good presentation of the class. Al is wonderful!! If you are looking to get certified definitely ask for AL DE LA CRUZ!
The STAG organization has been instrumental to our non-profit, The Kaweah Coalition. Their professional land-use expertise and legal representation have enabled our organization to collectivize and challenge illegal development across the Southern Sierra Nevada foothills. Under their guidance, our organization learned invaluable “inside knowledge” of strategical land-use planning tactics used by County agencies to demoralize community advocates, in addition to the complexities of CEQA and statutory code. Their lawyer represented us during stressful administrative hearings and brought unparalleled integrity to the table. We highly recommend their organization to any group of individuals or environmental groups that are serious about challenging powerful government agencies and/or developers.
