Tactical Class Finder aka TAC-Finder is a new web-based resource to help you find trainers as well as gear shops. The gear shop side of this sounds awesome. I constantly run across guys wondering what is available while they are on the road.
And, while I like the folks running this thing, I’m kind of curious about the “unbiased” aspect. Since they claim that the industry is in desperate need of an unbiased source for information and they plan to be it, I wonder what those “packages” they offer are all about. Sounds like they plan on taking money for listings. With that, somebody is going to claim that you are biased. Welcome to the big leagues.
At any rate, I can guarantee they will see some issues arise with the trainer part of this. There is no way around it. For example, are they going to open up their listings to every Tom, Dick and Harry out there? Just associating with some trainers will garner this fledgling site a bad reputation, at least in some circles. And then you’ve got to wonder if the top level trainers are going to want to lend their credibility to a site that will contain their competitors and by association legitimize them. It’s going to be tough nut to crack.
It’s an ambitious undertaking. I spoke to quite a few folks about doing this last year but with so many bullshit artists in the training market, I took a pass. I’ll keep an eye on how this goes for them. I wish them luck.
