Since 1967, the Southern Nevada Golf Association has served as the best source for deeply discounted greens fees and golf deals for public and private courses throughout the region. A licensed representative of the United States Golf Association, the SNGA carries out a number of official duties, including administering the USGA Handicap System, organizing tournaments, and arbitrating golf-related disputes, such as whether or not grass hulas qualify as appropriate club attire. The not-for-profit organization counts more than 50 courses and approximately 10,000 individuals among its membership ranks, and continuously strives to expand its reach while protecting the game’s integrity and traditions.
The NRA-certified instructors at Southern Nevada Fire Arms Training believe that gun owners should always be improving their skills regardless of whether they're complete novices or seasoned pros. That's why the instructors work one-on-one with shooters during training sessions that cater to each shooter's skill set and pace. In addition to this personalized instruction, they also teach immersive, all-day courses that prepare participants to apply for concealed-carry permits. Courses take place in multiple locations.

Although Drivers’ Education classes help students become licensed drivers, they don’t teach them any actual car control skills. That’s where BetterSaferDrivers.com comes in. The staff, helmed by auto racing veteran Robert Prevost, is determined to arm students with the emergency reaction skills they need to help prevent collisions and make them better safer drivers for years to come. During interactive defensive driving clinics, students practice their newly gleaned techniques on sprawling parking lots, learning how to brake fast, deal with skidding, and avoid accidents.
AAI Neptune Divers' instructors teach students of all levels various scuba-diving techniques, whether they want to become a rescue diver or simply want to obtain their diving certification. Open-water scuba-certification classes help the latter, giving students all the skills they need to travel to a submerged shipwreck or teach English to underprivileged merchildren. Rescue-diver classes explain how to rescue a fellow diver in the water, and they pair with CPR- and first-aid-certification courses. When they aren't teaching, the instructors lead dive trips out to Catalina.
At Ace Bartending's 40-foot bar, ice clinks against glasses and prospective mixologists chatter during hands-on courses. Instructors wax informational about the history and production of liquor before outlining state and municipal legal requirements for serving alcohol or distributing liquor to horses. As students progress, they migrate to eight functional bartending stations that feature working carbon dioxide lines, and lessons feed hungry brains tidbits of information on the use of glassware and garnishes to craft a beverage with fitting aesthetic appeal. The curriculum bounds across a bubbling, colorful rainbow of 200 different drinks and recipes.
In addition to hands-on demonstrations and role-playing exercises, courses hand down lessons on how to land a job as a bartender and give tips for job interviews. The classroom's walls, like those of a real bar, are crowded with colorful bottles, lit by crackling neon beer signs, and held together by flyers for bands seeking bassists.
Established in 1980 and nationally accredited by the NECPA, Creative Kids Learning Center fosters the development of children aged 18 months to 12 years while meeting each of the standards set forth by the "10 Signs of a Great Preschool." Inside colorful classrooms or outside on playgrounds, inspiration flows freely as kids participate in a curriculum that features such subjects as initiative, music and movement, and creative representation. The center's hands-on philosophy emphasizes five key components, including professionalism and education, which consistently shine through the words and actions of a staff that is certified in first aid, CPR, and refereeing wrestling matches between imaginary friends. Safety and health are also cornerstones of the business, resulting in toys, equipment, and classrooms being sanitized frequently.
