Josh Hirsh

Principle Instructor

As an EMT and instructor of firearms for over a decade, and firearm enthusiast for over 20 years, Josh had a front row seat to the pitfalls and challenges of civilian education and training in life saving skills.

At the range, he observed the lack of skill in individuals who owned a firearm for decades and recognized the need for alternative training methods.

As a private citizen, he sought to deepen his knowledge and broaden his skills in order to keep his family safe.

As an enthusiast, he sought precision in his craft.

As an instructor, he was driven to provide accessible training and sought a reliable space to educate.

Learn To Aim was born.
