Course Objective

Certified police officers often receive most of their formalized firearms skills training at the onset of their career when they attend a police training academy. Unfortunately, not everyone attains and / or retains a high proficiency skill level with their primary duty weapon. There are several different reasons for this lack of skill, all of which lead to the officer needing to improve their ability to effectively place rounds downrange in an effective and proficient manner.

Not all police agencies have the range related resources to assist these officers to improve and retain their duty weapon proficiency. This course is intended to assist officers in need of improving their duty weapon skills by guiding them through self-diagnoses, needed skill enhancements and building their confidence through improved qualification scores prior to the conclusion of the class.

Students will run through a 50 round qualification course at the beginning of the class and at the end of the class. The student must complete the course with a minimum of 35 rounds out of 50 within center mass of the target.
