what the students are saying about centurion solutions training:

"Centurion Solutions is a highly professional provider of handgun training.  Interesting, complete and well worth the cost."  - Ken J.

"I have a lot of training in my job and wish half of it was as interesting as this training was."   - Mark F.


"Lorne is a knowledgeable instructor with an experienced background who provided personal everyday stories to teach the basics and tips.  He was approachable and answered questions adequately.  With no experiences, I walked away comfortable knowing I was prepared to safely handle guns."  - Jessica L. 


"Lorne Rosand is very knowledgeable trainer!  Very professional!"  - Milen D.

"Lorne Rosand has excellent communication skills and a balanced approach to the subject of firearm self-defense.  His openness and responsiveness to questions, and an enthusiasm for the subject of the class are a real stimulus to learning for participants.  His knowledgeable guidance at the firing range is very helpful for attendees who are novice firearm users."  - John and Nancy O. 

"The permit to carry class yesterday was EXCELLENT. You clearly love the subject matter, are supremely organized, and have incredible teaching skills and wide knowledge of the subject.  That was probably best class I ever had on any subject!  Well done!  And thank you!"

- Katherine K.

"Lorne's Basic Pistol Level 1 training session provides infinite value.  As a long time self defense  devotee and Permit to Carry holder, I quickly realized how little I knew about efficiently and practically running a pistol for self defense.  I highly recommend it!  - John V.

​"Lorne obviously has a lot of experience in the field as an officer and is extremely knowledgeable about guns and carry guns."  - Todd E.

"Looking back on my past initial Minnesota carry permit training class and subsequent two previous renewal classes, your class yesterday (my 3rd renewal class) was by far the best! I even received a shooting lesson - a bonus for me!"  - Glen G.

​"I apologize for getting this to you late but wanted to THANK YOU for the excellent training class on September 30.  It took me a good year to find the right instructor for myself, someone who has the experience and had been in a situation that I might face one day myself.  Believe me when I say I was not disappointed.  Your class was excellent and well worth the costs!"  - Graham T.  

"Your class was well prepared, presented in seriousness and with a really informed attitude toward the subject matter.  Kudos to you for your excellent preparation class."  - Mike H. ​

​"Lorne many thanks for your recent permit to carry training program.  Both Chris and I were very impressed with the knowledge, thoroughness and professionalism you presented."  - Lynn M.  

"Your class on September 25 was informative and entertaining and it exceeded my expectations because you covered many more permit to carry topics that I expected you to cover."  - Lynn L.
