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.
The Level II course provides the current firearms instructor with the much needed tools to identify shooter deficiencies, whether it be trigger control, sighting issues or physical issue surrounding the proper use of the weapon. The course provides solutions once the firearms instructor identifies the deficiencies.
Note: During this course instructors are given the opportunity to diagnose deficiencies with shooters from the local area.
Subjects covered include:
- 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 (new).
