Who Is Coterel Institute?

Coterel Institute is a husband and wife owned small business that is bringing firearms education and training to the hard working individuals that have busy lives. 

Rob and Beth Coterel are dedicating their lives full time to bring this education to anyone that wants to get their CCW, take additional defensive handgun & rifle training, and other specialized classes to help individuals learn how to defend themselves and those they love.

We are working hard to help remove any obstacles that would prevent someone from exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms. We are dedicated to bring firearms training to the real people who have busy lives, work hard at their jobs, have a busy family life with kids and need to be able to get the training that will work with their schedules and not try to figure out how to make a Saturday only class fit into their lifestyle.

Not only do we offer CCW classes but we also offer further training with defensive handgun & rifle, tactical, and other training classes to help insure that all are able to defend themselves and be Responsibly Armed Americans. We also work with people who have disabilities to learn that they too are able to defend themselves and work with them 1 on 1 to get their CCW and learn defensive tactics to keep themselves from being victims.

Our Motto


We are believers in the God of Israel and stand on Biblical principles and the Written Word. We are also proud supporters of our Second Amendment rights that we uphold on a daily basis with strength, honor, integrity and knowledge. 

Our promise to our students is to help strengthen your ability to defend yourself, your families and your homes through education and training.
