Pistol Red Dot Instructor Train the Trainer Course

April 8 - April 10

$700.00

Tactical Options Pistol Red Dot Sight Train the Trainer Course is a 30-hour program designed to enhance the instructor’s knowledge and capability to train Officers on pistol-mounted Red Dot Sights (RDS). RDS systems are evolving as a more common practice within Law Enforcement duty pistol setups. Officers training will learn how to effectively utilize the optic system on correct principle training paths and fundamental application in order to accomplish precision accurate firing capabilities.

Instructors will receive critical skills and knowledge through comprehensive building blocks of instructions and the performance of a mounted pistol RDS. Therefore, shortcutting trials and errors of impractical and/or incorrect teaching methodologies and performance stages may limit or hurt the officer being a trainer on the application of a mounted RDS system. These concepts are crucial in training officers on mounting, care, and maintenance of RDS systems, efficient economy of motion techniques for sight acquisition and sight tracking during stress courses of fire, enhanced pistol fundamental application, and increased readiness status. This program will prepare the instructor to have a more successful teaching apparatus to build and develop their fellow officers to reach the critical standards and the department’s desired end state. Instructors will have to pass the final shooting stages in order to complete this course.

NOTE: Law Enforcement and Military Only
