Fortunately, you have come to the right place. There is no alternative that provides this volume of online education anywhere in the United States. Our courses were developed by former ATF leaders who have conducted almost 1,000 ATF inspections in their day. These individuals teamed with the firearm industry’s top Firearm Attorneys and technology and operations specialists to design a unique platform that suits the learning needs of new employees or current employees seeking their annual training platform.

On-line training is an important complement but can become stale after the day of education. Orchid’s online platform is routinely updated in batch format to ensure that you have access to a library of current ATF compliance education.

We also provide in-person education. In fact, Orchid Advisors is often called upon by the smallest to largest Federal Firearms Licensees and even the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) to deliver expert training. You can learn more about our in-person training and events on our website. Enroll Now.
