About Us


Spartan Training Resources is a business that provides firearms and tactical training to law enforcement agencies, military units, as well as  individual officers military personnel , law enforcement officers and qualified civilians.

We are able to provide high quality training due to our unique balance of Military and Law Enforcement backgrounds combined with extensive training experience. At STR we are very experienced instructors yet we are consummate students. When we are not training others, or working patrol, we are training. We enjoy teaching and learning tactics, field craft and firearms related skills.

At STR our goal is to get you the training you came for. You will not receive any political lectures, long war stories, or cult like dogma. You will be too busy training.

If you want to train hard and train smart then come train with STR.

We are passionately committed to providing quality training to people that go "in harms way". We have had numerous students emerge victorious from officer involved shootings and go home in good health at the end of their shifts. At Spartan Training Resources we save lives through proper training. We are a purpose driven organization that strives to bring state of the art training to people that require it.

STR is a company owned and operated by two seasoned instructors who have both received the "Superintendents Award for Excellence" from California State Parks for their service in providing excellent patrol rile training to State Rangers in the region.  Both leaders are certified firearms instructors through P.O.S.T., the NRA Law Enforcement Division, Morrigan Consulting, ITR, and TACFIRE.

From Our Clients

"Just attended the January class taught by STR. Great day 1 review of the basic fundamentals of shooting. Day 2, we built from there with wounded drills, team movement, and a great Combat Mindset lecture! Day 3....we hit the gym for an intro to Grav and applied what we had learned in force on force. Excellent venue and top notch instruction...right here on the Central Coast!"
