This 3-Day course has been developed to provide law enforcement firearms instructors with a practical train-the-trainer program in implementing red-dot sights on duty handguns.

The aim of this course is to increase the weapons handling skills, technical knowledge, and instructional attributes of law enforcement trainers inthe fundamental, technical and tactical aspects of employing red-dot sights on duty handguns. The information and skills learnt on this course will allow trainee instructors to build out and teach a red-dot sight pistol course for their agencies


During this course our instructors will present course information using adult learning methods that includes the use of experiential self-directed learning and problem solving that is organized around job application. Our instructors will integrate experiences, concepts, and observations to facilitate understanding and direction in support of short-term memory uptake and procedural memory transfer. Skills training will be used to modify specific behaviors or habits and develop new behaviors to deeper their learning and improve performance. By utilizing this coaching methodology, we can unlock our student's potential to maximize their own performance, helping them learn rather than teaching them.
