This 16 hour POST approved Advanced Carbine Instructor Skills course is designed to build upon the existing carbine instructor’s skills. This is not a basic instructor certification course. This course will focus heavily on “coaching the shooter” and will greatly enhance the instructor’s ability to diagnose shooting errors in an easily understood manner, and provide practical and effective means to make permanent and sustainable corrections. The student will further develop their understanding of the capabilities of the police carbine, and their ability to teach: appropriate set up and accessories for the carbine, weapons maintenance, fundamentals of shooting, proper zeroing, “combat” shooting techniques, use of various positions and cover, efficient weapons manipulation skills, malfunction clearances, understanding wound ballistics, tactics and techniques for fighting with the carbine, extended range shooting, low light / night techniques, and use of optical sights. The student will be exposed to numerous shooting drills to reinforce the learning objectives.
