High Risk Training was started with the mission to provide a higher level of training for law enforcement and the civilian community. Our instructors and staff have been handpicked for their background and experience in military, law enforcement, and technology fields to provide our students with the best possible learning environment.

High Risk Training is based out of the south west region of Ohio and conducts its operations utilizing training facilities throughout Ohio. We determine the optimum facility based on the nature of the training material involved and the requirements of the students. We can also come to your location so you don't have to travel. Should you have your own facility, conducting courses there would allow for operators to be able to respond in case of a departmental call-out. We understand the complexities that law enforcement departments and civilians face with today's demands and can work with you to provide the best training atmosphere possible allowing for conditions suitable to your specific needs.

We strive to give the highest level of attention and education to each course and student we teach. No two courses are the same as the course progression is based on individual goals and abilities. Our staff is always researching and developing new tactics and techniques to bring to our students as we strive to create efficient and effective shooters. High Risk Training would like to thank you for your interest in our company and invite you to contact us with any questions or comments.
