The IALEFI Master Instructor development program is not a “shooting school” per se, but rather an experience to make you a better communicator in imparting critical survival skills. It is specifically designed for individuals already certified as firearms instructors to continue their education and attend quality training at minimum cost.
Focus will be on the enhancement of teaching skills on the three primary law enforcement weapon systems---handgun, shotgun and rifle. A full day of instruction will be provided on each system by individuals who are recognized subject matter experts in their respective disciplines. An additional block of training on low light threat management will also be offered.
Students will be exposed to a number of skill building and evaluation drills. Live fire exercises will be both demanding and challenging and attendees should be in good physical condition. Our goal is to provide a quality service so that we may better prepare our law enforcement officers who go in harms way.
The Handgun - This will be a handgun course aimed at building the Instructional skills of the police firearms instructor. We will start with a review and discussion of the basics, including: stance, grip, sight, alignment, trigger control, follow through, holster placement, draw, presentation and scanning. Students will then be shown a series of drills and tools designed to improve problem shooters and enhance the skills of all their shooters.
The Rifle - The rifle / carbine portion of the Master Instructor Development Course is an 8-hour class. In the first half of the class emphasis will be placed on individual skill enhancement. Topics will include balancing speed and accuracy, multiple target engagements, dynamic moving and shooting, and bi-lateral shooting. In the second half of the course, the emphasis will be on instructor development for creating and conducting advance tactical multi-person live fire drills for the rifle / carbine operators. Students will participate in the drills as both a "student" and as an "instructor".
The Shotgun - Despite its tremendous utility value, the shotgun remains an underutilized and misunderstood tool. Many of the negative attitudes relative to the shotgun stem from improper training, and as a result officers never develop confidence in this particular weapon system. This block of instruction will explore alternate instructional techniques to make training with the shotgun a positive rather than negative experience.
