WE SUGGEST CONTACTING US TO DISCUSS WHAT MAY BEST FIT YOU OR COME IN AND TRY OUT ALL THE CLASSES!

THE COST OF TRAINING CAN BE EXPENSIVE, BUT WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR COSTS AS LOW AS POSSIBLE FOR THE QUALITY OF THE TRAINING YOU WILL RECEIVE WITH OUR TEAM AT NEW BREED TRAINING CENTER. IT ISN’T ALWAYS HOW MUCH YOU PAY, BUT HOW MUCH THE TRAINING PAYS YOU BACK IN THE END.
