Course Description

Download Course Information

Firearms instructors take your skills and abilities to a new level. The addition of the semiautomatic rifle has increased the effectiveness of the patrol officer, but it also offers challenges to the trainer. This two-day course is mentally and physically demanding, so participants must be in good physical condition. Both days will run longer than the minimum of eight (8) hours with low light shoot. Our 44-hour Firearms Instructor Course is a precursor to this program.

Topics include the following

  • Sighting, zeroing and carries
  • Weapon storage
  • Liability
  • Loading, unloading and reloading
  • Training and range safety
  • Close quarter engagements and weapon retention
  • Stoppages and failure drills
  • Low light shooting
  • Instructional techniques

Due to the interactive and practical nature of this course, class size is limited to 20 students.


Students must be a licensed Peace Officer or employed in the law enforcement field and already be a Basic Firearms Instructor (per-approval required); Three plus years of law enforcement experience is recommended.
