  • Their quality is in the name, elevated… the amount of time and effort that went into individually assisting, in a group setting, was unmatched. Each person was taught pointers in more ways than one. From basic form, to narrowing down intricate techniques in real life examples. They know it all, and personally elevate their own training every day. Safe to say there’s not enough stars to give. Money well spent.

  • Did a team training with Sean - excellent communication and professionalism.

  • Brilliant class, and a lot was learned. Adding multiple weapon systems to the mix and establishing the right technique for transitioning is really complex. Sean really challenged us to push our boundaries, showed a lot of patience as we explored those boundaries, and was abundant with his humor to make it super fun throughout the day.

  • Been always on the fence and intimidated by competition shooting ever since I started shooting, but Sean and Alysia definitely had me sold on this course. I definitely learned from everyone through watching their runs or even just asking questions.
    Sam Chau
  • I attended this highly anticipated event and trained with Sean and learned new skills that introduced me to 2-gun competition. The first half... we started from the ground up, working on rifle setups, gear, manipulations, and transitions. During the second half we had a mini competition within our group where each drill was a stage where we could win something. I maintained top 3 spots for each stage. It was a top tier event to say the least!
    Jamel Hughes
  • Well, my first official competition is in the books... I was lucky enough to pull off the win and actually take home some cold hard cash! I 100% used knowledge I just learned from Sean to make it happen! I owe you a drink next time man!
    Adam Tarwater
  • I first traveled to Utah to train with Sean and Alysia for two half-day sessions, and learn about the elements of competition shooting. Since then, Sean has been my main coach for a while now. Since he's out in Utah we continue to train regularly on FaceTime. If you are looking for great online training and can't get to a live class, book an online training session. They are so worth it!
    Maddy Scholar
  • I just took the advanced action pistol class with Sean burrows Team Federal and it definitely is a pinnacle level course. But don't let that scare you away there is something for the 'tactical Timmies,' something for the competition guys and gals. You learn normal reloads, speed reloads, reloading on the move, shooting on the move, shooting from awkward positions. It's definitely a well rounded course for two days, and I highly suggest it to anyone who has any interest in getting better with their pistols.

  • These guys are AMAZING! I took their concealed carry ready class and am now doing private instruction with Sean. They are PROFESSIONAL shooters and know what they are talking about. They aren't just gun nuts with a bunch of safe queens.

What To Bring

  • Serviceable Semi-Automatic Handgun
  • 100 Rounds of Ammunition
  • Two (2) Magazines
  • Eye Protection
  • Electronic Hearing Protection
  • Firearm Maintenance & Cleaning Supplies
  • Functional Range Attire
  • Food & Water
  • First Aid Kit
  • Valid Driver License
  • Note Taking Materials
  • Positive Attitude

Functional Range Attire

First and foremost, dress for the weather, and prepare for it to change. Clothing should be comfortable and non-restrictive. Recommended items to consider are brimmed or baseball style hat, a high-collared shirt, long pants, and close-toed shoes. Avoid tank tops and low-cut shirts.


Close toed ATHLETIC shoes are an absolute must. Dress for the task at hand. When shooting semi-automatic firearms, hot brass (or steel) casing are ejected rapidly. Running the unnecessary risk of a single hot casing making contact with bare feed can be a safety hazard for yourself and those next to you on the firing line. If you do not have close toed shoes when you arrive for class, you will be sent away to go get a pair before you are allowed to participate.

No. You are paying for a course from a certified instructor who delivers required materials and training as part of the application process. Completing the application submission, and meeting all state requirements for a concealed firearms permit is ultimately the applicant’s responsibility.

While certain hosting ranges have very specific ammo requirements due to location and equipment, these restrictions will be specified on all promotional material prior to the event or class. Universal restrictions for all classes Elevated Training puts on will include (but may not be limited to):

  • Armor-Piercing Rounds
  • Tracer Rounds
  • Any Steel Core Projectiles
  • Incendiary Ammunition
  • Steel Birdshot
  • Steel Buckshot

If you are unsure about your specific gun ammo combination, send us an email so we can help you out. If you are unsure about what you have, and if it can be used, feel free to contact us, and we’ll help you figure it out!

We highly recommend you do not wait to purchase ammunition the day of the class. Ammo availability is scarce and intermittent sometimes. If you are bringing your own gun, the best policy is to check with the range hosting the class to be certain they have ammo available. If you are renting a firearm, then it is most often the policy of the range that you must use ammo they sell you to shoot their guns. Either way, plan ahead and make sure you have what you need before the day of the class.

Only if it is required by the range hosting the event or class. Specific ammo restrictions will be noted on all promotional material if this is the case.

We do not submit your application to the State of Utah on your behalf. However, you will leave the class with everything you need to submit your application, and instructions on how to best proceed.

No, it does not. The tuition covers the course itself, and a signed & stamped application from the instructor that is required by the State of Utah. Some hosting ranges may cover the added service of finger printing and a printed passport quality photo, and others do not. Tuition also does not cover the State application fee.

Click on the event above you are interested in, and you will be taken to the appropriate registration page. Depending on how a class or event is organized, some are booked directly through Elevated Training, while others are booked through the range or another organizing group.

By law, the state of Utah is required to issue your permit no more than 60 days after your application is received (if they find no reason to deny your application). As demand is currently very high, the Utah State Bureau of Criminal Information is working quickly to process all applications, and they ask that you give them up to 60 days to process your submission, and not to call for a status update one week after submission.

This varies from class to class. Please refer to the class description for specific ammo type and quantity required.

Allowable minimum age for minor students varies depending on the class. Regardless, all minors need to be accompanied by a legal part or guardian, and arrangements for minors attending any class. Age restrictions are as follows.

Concealed Firearms Permit Classes

Whether the concealed carry class involves the practical application of firing handguns with live ammunition at the range, or not; only minors that are 90 days away from their 18th birthday may attend a Utah CFP class, as they are within the acceptable date range of applying for and obtaining a provisional concealed firearms permit.

Classes Without Live Ammunition

Minor students ages 12 and up may attend all classes that do not involve discharging live rounds from firearms. Some live events and classes hosted by third parties may have different age restrictions, and will be specified on all promotional material prior to the event.

Classes With Live Ammunition

For live in-person events and classes that involve the handling of live ammunition in guns on a shooting range the minimum age is 16 if Elevated Training is putting on the event.

Private Instruction

Private instruction is available for minors 12 years and up when accompanied by an adult.

A firearm is required for every student to take this class, however you don’t need to be the official owner of a firearm in order to use one during class. If you aren’t sure what type of firearm you want to own, we encourage you to rent one the range (if the option is available), or borrow one from a reliable friend or family member in order to take the class. If you do wind up renting from range hosting the class, they usually require that their ammo be used in their guns for safety reasons.

You are welcome to bring it, but you may not use it. This class is specifically designed for learning defensive shooting skills with a modern semi-automatic handgun.

You don’t need to bring anything of the sort in order to complete the class. Those are items you provide with your completed application at the time you submit it to the State of Utah.

It depends on whether the class you have registered for is put on by a third party (such as a shooting range), or if the class is put on by Elevated Training. Third parties hosting a live event or class have their own registration, cancelation, and refund policies. If the live event or class is put on by Elevated Training directly, then our registration, cancelation, and refund policies apply. Please review our Class Cancelation Policy carefully if you are concerned you might need to do so.

It depends on whether the class you have registered for is put on by a third party (such as a shooting range), or if the class is put on by Elevated Training. Third parties hosting a live event or class have their own rescheduling policies. If the live event or class is put on by Elevated Training directly, then our rescheduling policies apply. Please review our Class Cancelation Policy carefully if you think you may need to do so.

Class material presented is based around using a semi-automatic pistol. Try to be sure it fits comfortably in your hand, and is chambered in a caliber that you can handle. However, if you are unsure about handgun fit and caliber choice, this topic will be covered in depth during class, and most hosting ranges for this class offer handgun rentals if you feel the one you bring does not work for you.

Immediately! Your stamped and signed application is valid for up to one year from the date marked on your application by your instructor. Don’t delay though! If your application is received even one day past the year mark, you’ll be required to re-take the course.

Arrive with all your gear, ready to go 15 to 20 minutes before the scheduled start time. We will not wait for late students to arrive before we begin class.

Brimmed headwear not only protects shooters from sun glare that can interrupt vision when firing a gun, but it also blocks hot brass casings from flying in your face, falling behind your eye protection, or falling down the collar of your shirt. Wearing a hat is a safety precaution every shooter attending class should seriously consider.
