Citizens Safety Academy Policies

Citizens Safety Academy is the leading personal protection training school in Middle Tennessee. Below are some of our training policies and procedures.

Commitment to Client Confidentiality

The Citizens Safety Academy is a group of experienced professionals dedicated to bringing the highest quality of service to our clients. We strongly believe in our ethical and legal obligation to protect our clients' privacy.

Age Policy:

Anyone attending class under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Citizens Safety Academy will not be responsible for minors while in class and should it become necessary for the instructor to remove a minor from class, a parent or guardian will need to be available. Minors also cannot legally sign our liability waiver, so a parent or guardian also need to be available to sign the document.

Payments/Refunds / Deposits:

When you sign-up for a class with the Citizens Safety Academy you will get payment options depending on the class.

Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit and Pepper Spray classes are to be paid in full when you register. If you register for a class but cannot attend, notify us in advance and we will usually apply your payment to a future class.

A deposit is required to hold your spot in our other classes. Final payment is due on or before the first day of class. If you cannot attend the class you registered for please notify us as soon as possible. Usually, your deposit can be used toward the price of a future class.

If cancellation becomes necessary due to weather or another emergency, we will make every effort to inform clients in a timely manner, and a full refund will be issued, or the client may register for another class at their option.

You will have the option to make payments via PayPal using a credit/debit card without divulging credit/debit card information to us. NO CREDIT CARD DATA IS STORED ON THIS SITE.
