The facility at Elk River has been established for training law enforcement, military and security personnel seeking reality based training relevant to their occupation.


Full Service Facility

The Elk River Training Center is located in south-central Tennessee in a beautiful country setting with rolling hills and hundreds of acres of undeveloped land. In this ideal location, Advanced Security Concepts has developed a full service training facility to service professionals from the region and nationwide. We have multiple small arms ranges and rifle ranges out to 1000 yards.

All training at the facility is provided by Advanced Security Concepts and ERTC staff professionals with decades of experience in executive protection, secret service, law enforcement, and armed forces. These instructors are knowledgeable, courteous and professional. We strive to provide the highest level of training available.

ASC founder Oded Krashinsky; a former lieutenant of one of the world’s most respected secret service special operations units, has personally overseen the development of the facility and its curriculum to ensure that the highest training standards are achieved.

The ERTC Director, Mark Tolleson brings 25 years of experience from the military, law enforcement special operations and private security communities. He is a dedicated and experienced training professional and is the lead instructor for all advanced courses hosted at the facility.

The Elk River Training Center provides a unique and affordable opportunity to train and gain valuable knowledge which is not generally available to those seeking advanced training at an affordable price.
