Seminars in Law Enforcement

Firearms Instructor Certification — Level I

Learn the skills necessary to be a firearms instructor and coach for your department. You should already possess an excellent mastery of safe weapon handling skills and be physically capable of performing police combat shooting courses. This course is not designed to teach you how to shoot but is designed to teach you how to instruct others to shoot as law enforcement personnel.


Bring complete duty gear with the following:

  • Pistol
  • Department-approved shotgun
  • High-intensity flashlight
  • Adequate clothing for all conditions
  • Canteen or other water-hydration system
  • Wraparound eye protection
  • Hearing protection
  • Police whistle
  • Stopwatch
  • Pocket notebook and pen
  • Factory-quality ammunition
    • 600 rounds handgun
    • 25 rifled slugs
    • 25 rounds 00 buck
    • 150 field, skeet or trap loads

For the night fire exercise that will take place Tuesday or Wednesday evening, we recommend you bring knee pads and, in case of equipment failure, a second weapon, extra magazines and an extra light. Extra pistols may not be available at the range.
