Scenario Based Training – EDR is committed to providing scenario based training to the citizens.  Flat range work is great for introducing shooters to basic or new skills, however scenario based training enhances motor-learning where shooters must make critical decisions, in more realistic conditions, and work to solve their problems. EDR uses both range vehicles and a shoot-house to create more realistic environment.  Adrenaline will be up, mistakes will be made and a lot will be learned from those mistakes.

EDR is committed to the concept of training like you would have to fight in the event of a deadly encounter.  Scenario based training helps create shooters who are better prepared to deal with the stress of a deadly encounter.  Even level 1 classes will participate in some degree of scenario type training.  As EDR student’s progress, they will find many opportunities in advanced courses to participate in even more scenario based training.  In fact, several of our advanced courses are almost entirely scenario-based!
