Shoulder Fired Weapon Instructor Development Course


This course is designed for both current firearms instructors and those who desire to become firearms instructors for their department. The course specifically addresses shoulder fired weapons to include shotguns, rifles/carbines, and sub-machineguns including select fire weapon systems. Shoulder fired weapons often are not included in many firearms instructor courses or subject to limited instruction compared to the pistol. Instruction in the shooting fundamentals, operation and functioning, care and maintenance, and ballistics, is given in the classroom. Tactical use and employment instruction is conducted on the range through live fire drills. In addition, methods of instruction are presented and students are required to actually coach one another on the range. The use of the pistol will be utilized in the transition and malfunction drills.  The course not only provides tactical training with these weapon systems, but emphasis is placed on providing instructor development skills which will allow the student to instruct other officers in the safe and tactical deployment of these weapon systems.
