How to become a Private Security Certified Firearms Instructor
Private Security Certified Firearms Instructors (PS) are made up of a cadre of individuals that currently work for security companies and/or law enforcement agencies. To become an instructor, individuals must meet the mission and values of the WSCJTC and uphold the rules set forth in WAC 139-37. Instructors that are unable to meet these program policies and WAC 139-37 will be removed from the instructor cadre.
