Requirements for FASTER Training
You are required to have a Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit. You may apply for FASTER before you get your CHP, but will need it before training. Anyone prohibited from possessing a firearm will be disqualified.
We are looking for a wide range of people with various levels of experience. We will keep your answers and your identity confidential.
Other FASTER Levels
As a reminder, you must have completed FASTER Level-1 with 100% on the POST handgun qualification to attend the Level-2 class. To attend the Level-3 class you must have successfully completed Level 2 at 100%. To attend the Level-4 class you must have successfully completed Level 3 at 100%. Please check your last completion certificate before registering.
Cost of FASTER Training
Level-1 classes cost $1,000. Subsequent levels cost $600. You can pay your tuition securely on this website using our donation form, or pay via check. We can also invoice your school. Most schools ask us to invoice them, and then send us a check. While we raise private money to provide scholarships to school districts in their first year or two, districts should budget for security training just as they do for other required training. Some districts have been able to apply for school safety grants to help with the cost of an armed security team. Others have had success with community fundraisers that are dedicated to funding these expenses.
At FASTER Colorado, we never want the lack of budget in a school or district to keep a school staff member from this life-saving training. Scholarships are available for school staff members upon request, while they are available. Partial scholarships may be available to other participants.
