COURSE DESCRIPTION

This unique program provides today’s Police Firearms Instructor the necessary knowledge and skill to develop and deliver an effective in-service training program.  Each required course presents new knowledge and skills, and reinforces important information previously delivered in other required courses. Over 400 Police Training Institute Master Firearms Instructors have been certified and are currently serving their agencies across the nation.  Apprenticeships can be served on any of the dates listed above.

APPENTICESHIP

The Apprentice Program must follow successful completion of the three foundational courses. It is highly recommended that the Strategy and Tactics course and the Tactical Firearms course be taken prior to the Instructor course. This enables students in the Instructor course to concentrate on teaching methods rather than trying to develop new knowledge and skills as they learn to teach them.

RECERTIFICATION

Master Firearms Instructors must attend a recertification workshop every three years. The workshop focuses on changes in doctrine and teaching methodology, and re-qualification is required to maintain the knowledge and skills required for certification. Notification will be made when recertification is required.

REQUIREMENTS

Certification requirements for the Police Training Institute Master Firearms Instructor rating are successful completion of:

  • Police Strategy and Tactics Course (one week)
  • Police Tactical Firearms Course (one week)
  • Police Firearms Instructor Course (one week)
  • Master Firearms Instructor Apprentice Program (three days)

There is no time limit for the completion of the requirements.
