Question # 9 – How Does Front Sight Decide Which Courses to Offer When?
June 2nd, 2006
Hi, this is Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute and I’m answering the top ten questions as surveyed by our students on May 15, 2006.
So this is answer to question # 9: How do we decide which courses that we select to offer on our schedule each year?
Well, that’s real simple. We base our schedule on the enrollments of the previous year or two. See, we look for any types of trends that we see in the enrollments.
If we see a class that is gaining enrollment each year, well the following year when we offer that schedule, we’re going to offer more of those courses.
If we see a course that is relatively flat in its enrollment over a one or two or even a three year period of time, we’ll either offer the same number of courses or we will reduce that course offering slightly.
Because, again, we want to provide courses for the most popular courses and the most number of people.
If we see a course that has a declining enrollment, then we’re going to offer that course less.
It’s, you know, simple as that. There is no other criteria that we look at, other than the amount of enrollment in the particular courses that we’re offering this year, and offered last year and we make a decision for next year based on that criteria.
So, if there is a specific course that you like to attend, the more that you attend it, the more it will be offered. If there is a course that is not being well attended, we’re going to offer it less to make room for those courses that are the most attended.
So I hope that answers that question for you. If you have any others, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks very much!
