VATA Training Schedule

Please read notice below before emailing us about course dates

As of January 2019, we will be restructuring VATA to focus more on our Law Enforcement and Military training. We will no longer be running our open enrollment/open to the public courses multiple weekends per month. All of our open enrollment curriculum will still be available to be scheduled privately, either for groups or individuals. We will also occasionally run specialty open enrollment courses, once or twice a year. Private bookings can be made by emailing with date requests, number of students, and requested curriculum.

All course fees must be paid in full at least three days prior to class dates. A 50% deposit will be required at the time of registration (you will be prompted to submit this deposit via PayPal after completing your registration form) to hold a student's spot and the remaining balance will be due three days prior to the class. Students are welcome to pay their entire course fee at the time of registration if they would prefer to not make two separate payments. If you need to make a second payment, you can do so via the Paypal link below the list of course dates on this page.

Deposits and payments are only refundable in the event that VATA cancels or postpones a course for any reason other than inclement weather. In the event of a non-weather-related cancelation, refunds will be issued minus a 5% service charge, or a student can choose to keep their full deposit/payment amount on file as a credit to be put toward a future VATA course within 18 months. If a student needs to withdraw their registration from a course, they must do so at least one week prior to the scheduled course date. If a cancellation is received at least one week prior to the course, the student's deposit/payment can be held on file as a credit that can be put toward any future VATA course within 18 months. If a cancellation is received less than one week prior to the course date, the student's deposit/payment is non-refundable and cannot be held on file as a credit. If a course must be postponed or canceled due to inclement weather, all registered students' deposits/payments will be held on file as a credit to be put toward a future VATA course within 18 months of the original training date. We will also no longer be accepting credit card payments for merchandise sales on course dates. All merchandise sales will be cash or check only.

If you have any questions regarding deposits and payments, please contact us.

Due to the nature of their work, it is a possibility with any given course date that Owner/Operators Destin and Greg may not be able to be present. They have assembled a team of highly experienced adjunct instructors that have proven themselves in combat and are subject matter experts who can take the helm of any courses in Destin and Greg's absence.
