Handgun Instructor Level 2
The 40 hour Level II Instructor Course is a vital supplement to the 80 hour Level I Course.
While the Level I course focuses on core competencies necessary to instruct others in safe gun handling, handgun manipulation and marksmanship, the Level II course focuses on diagnosing shooter deficiencies. It provides the current firearms instructor with the much needed tools to identify shooter deficiencies, whether it be trigger control, sighting issues or physical issues surrounding the proper use of the weapon, and then diagnose deficiencies with actual shooters.
- Develop the skills necessary to identify shooter deficiencies
- Develop firearms training to correct those deficiencies
- Develop motor learning components to correct shooter deficiencies
- Begin development of maintaining fundamental skills while conducting scenario based training
To register for the course, contact your
Training Manager to assign the training to you via LMS.
Upcoming classes are listed below. Registration does not guarantee acceptance into the class. Selections will be completed four weeks prior to the class; those accepted into the class will receive a notification at that time.
If classes are full, or not available, please complete the Course Interest Survey. This is not a waiting list, but instead helps us see if there is enough interest to create another class. If we schedule a session, we will contact everyone who has completed the survey and request that registration be completed.
