Course Description: This 16 hour POST approved Advanced Handgun Instructor Skills course is designed to build upon the existing firearms 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 handgun, and their ability to teach: appropriate set up and accessories for the handgun, weapons maintenance, fundamentals of shooting, “combat” shooting techniques, use of various positions and cover, efficient weapons manipulation, malfunction clearances, understanding wound ballistics, tactics and techniques for fighting with the handgun, extended range shooting, and low light / night techniques. The student will be exposed to numerous shooting drills to reinforce the learning objectives.
