with this class. Every day I went back to my hotel
in amazement of the amount of information I have learned.
Everything that was taught was very easy to understand.
I am very thankful for this class and the wealth
of knowledge that has been bestowed upon me."
my humble opinion, if you can only attend one or two
classes, make it Snipercraft's Basic and Advanced courses.
While physically and mentally demanding, it is
the best training that I have ever received. I
will take much more from this than my poor writing skills
can convey. Thank you for your time and knowledge
and your willingness to share it."
professionalism and knowledge make this by far the best

many tactical shooting classes, and Snipercraft is at
the top of the list."
was the best and hardest class that I've gone through
in my 12 years. But then, anything worth having,
and have it mean something, is hard. I am very
proud to have passed this class. The instructors
was one of the best weeks I've ever had. I felt
honored to learn these skills from people who are the
top names in the sniper community. Better to learn
from the best, than from anyone else."
"I know that I mentioned it to you at the end of our class, but it's worth
mentioning again. The training that you provided was, without a doubt, the best
training that I have ever been fortunate enough to attend in my nine years as a
police officer. If I have any influence at all, no sniper from our ERU will ever
again attend sniper training from any organization other than Snipercraft.
class. Instructor was very knowledgeable and approachable.
I liked how everything we did was based
on real-life sniper shootings. Excellent use of
videos and photos. Also liked the physical portions
of the course. The course trains you to be a sniper
and not a target shooter."
professional and knowledgeable. Truly cares and
is compassionate about snipers. Don't ever lose
your passion for teaching."
I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the class...even the PT test and the
"agony" drill. Your level of professionalism, knowledge, and genuine concern are
apparent. There is such a huge variance in the level of quality of training in
the law enforcement field today that it is genuinely refreshing and enjoyable to
attend training at this level of excellence, even during the times that it makes
every inch of your body hurt. At least for those of us that are doing it for the
course. Should be standard for all snipers. The
case studies and classroom instruction are phenomonal!"
is rare to attend a class where the instructor has done
as much research and placed as much thought into the
training. Great job!"

course was as much a psychological training in what
to expect on the job and how to prepare your mind to
be a sniper as it was a class in shooting. The
course exceeded the high reputation Snipercraft possesses."
highly recommend Derrick Bartlett as an instructor of
sniper-related topics. His knowledge, skills and
abilities are tremendous resources that are available
to the sniper community, particularly law enforcement
tactical snipers. I will attend more classes taught
by Snipercraft instructors, and definitely courses taught
by Derrick Bartlett."
of the valuable training that you have given snipers,
including me, we have become more effective and competent
in handling those high risk situations that are inevitable.
In both of my shootings I utilized skills learned
in the basic class. So, I just wanted to thank
you for your hard work and dedication to training snipers.
You have saved lives!"
Derrick Bartlett was phenomenal. He approached
each lesson with facts - a reaserch, proobased class
which was enlightening. He is incredibly passionate
about his craft, and he cares deeply about developing
police snipers, as well as advocating for the sniper
community. Couldn't have asked for more."
