Courses and Membership

At this point you may be wondering how you can join the Panoplia.org community. There are no ongoing fees, dues, or costs involved in being part of the community. We encourage you to fully participate on a regular basis by reading the blog posts and commenting when you have something to offer.

We ask that you consider taking the online training course called, “Security Foundations.” The SF course was developed to ensure that participation in the community is based on common knowledge and terminology. We offer the SF course at a very reasonable rate. This nominal fee helps ensure we have the resources to keep Panoplia.org up and running. You can view an outline of the course by clicking here.

Online Courses

A variety of online courses are available to anyone who has an interest. Please see the Online Courses link in the top navigation bar. Some are offered at no cost, and others at a nominal fee. Once you register for a course you can revisit it as long as it remains online, even if it is updated. New course offerings will be added as they are developed.

Courses Onsite

Roughly 500 individuals a year attend onsite security training courses offered by FirebaseCSG. The courses are currently held at a variety of locations. The onsite courses include:

Law Enforcement
  • Covert Counter-Terrorism Operations
  • Advanced SWAT Team Training
 Civilian
  • Field Security Training
  • Advanced Rifle
  • Advanced Pistol
Plans are in the works to purchase land and set up a purpose-built security training center in Orlando, Florida. This will allow many more individuals to attend the onsite courses. We hope you have the opportunity to join us at some point.
