Jason Falconer is President/Owner of Tactical Advantage Firearms Training, Inc. which has been operating since 2003. Tactical Advantage currently concentrates on firearms training for individuals in a group or private setting, including permit to carry training in MN. Jason has also created advanced and customized classes for individuals who desire more advanced safety training. His business has grown primarily through student referrals, and Jason takes pride in providing the best training options available in Central MN.
Continued education and training has been a personal interest of Jason’s, as he believes each of us has something to learn no matter our level of expertise in our area of discipline. As a result, he has attended some of the best firearms training schools in the United States. His goal is to teach individuals the mindset, knowledge and skills needed to be successful with firearms in order to secure their personal safety or that of their family, at home or in public. As a training professional, he continuously researches and develops new curriculum and training methods to make the training experience for his students the best they can get.
For the past 5 years, Jason has been assisting Ted Boran with St. Cloud State University skills training in the disciplines of decision shooting and dynamic entry. He intends to utilize this experience to further develop curriculum to instruct law enforcement professionals and qualified civilians the benefits of reality based training. Jason believes that although civilian and law enforcement students can obtain great firearms training from various sources, they are missing a key component in their personal safety training without going through reality based training.
Jason also has a law enforcement background and is currently the Police Chief of the Albany Police Department. In his time as Chief of Police, Jason developed a mission and vision statement for the department, and set in place core values for the members of the department to work towards and claim as their own. He also revised and updated the daily operations of the department including creating a new capital improvement plan. Jason also serves as the department’s firearms instructor, and has created POST Board approved firearms training curriculum. Jason’s unique circumstances and experiences in Albany have given him a comprehensive understanding of the challenges an administrator or police chief faces when leading a police department of 10 officers and smaller.
Jason specializes in consulting in reality-based firearms, law enforcement and personal security training.
