FIREARMS TRAINING FREQUENCY FOR SAVING LIVES
How frequently do you train with your duty weapon?
The industry firearms training frequency and requirement are not nearly as rigorous as it should be. This is why we have developed this program PD - Industry Shoot for law enforcement officers and armed security personnel.
Training and development require time and money, the two rarest things in many armed professionals lives, these is why we have developed this program as part of our commitment to improving officer safety, public safety and help raise the industry standards.
Law enforcement officers are required to qualify at an approved course of fire assessment only once a year, shooting only 24 rounds for the entire qualification to maintain their ability to carry a firearm.
We all know that this is nowhere as close as good enough as it should be for an officer to operate with high level of proficiency and safety armed in public.
Professional development in firearms training has its undeniable massive benefits. If you are ever in a life threatening defensive situation, can you prove it has been less than 6 months since you’ve used your firearm and shot last? Can you prove your proficiency and accuracy was at an acceptable level where it should be?
Investing in your own professional development and undertaking training courses as an armed professional is an excellent way to prove that you are proficient with sound skills and knowledge to operate effectively in your industry and capable of making the right tactical decisions in critical situations.
How often should you train? As often as you possibly can, you can never have enough training. Shooting on a regular basis helps keep your firearms training frequency at an acceptable level.
If your proficiency and accuracy is questionable, shooting only once or twice a year, how can you protect yourself and save others in a life threatening situation? How can you provide evidence in any case to prove that you are well trained at high level?Enroll Now
