Our LE Firearms Instructor Series begins by building a solid foundation of teaching, evaluation, marksmanship, and firearms knowledge with our LE Firearms Marksmanship and Manipulation Instructor Course.
Our LE Firearms Marksmanship and Manipulation Instructor Course trains future Instructors to have the skills to accurately shoot and properly/efficiently manipulate all common LE defensive firearms and give them the skills and knowledge to pass that information on to their students and make them better with their defensive tools.
The farthest from a “Show up and get a certificate” class possible, MDFI LE Instructor Candidates will be thoroughly trained and then evaluated throughout the course on responsible firearms handling, their ability to demonstrate techniques, evaluate others, teach points of instruction, and pass shooting qualifications in order to graduate and will leave with either an earned Instructor Certification or merely a certificate of attendance.
Those who graduate these programs will receive an MDFI instructor curriculum to assist in passing on the learned information to their future law enforcement students.
