Remedial Training & Coaching Specialist


Hosted By:            West Georgia Technical College Police Department

                             April 29-30, 2024

Cost: $400


Many firearms instructor certification courses only spend a few hours on shooting diagnostics and how to work with struggling shooters. This course takes a deep dive into the process...


This 2-day / 16-hour instructor development course is designed to teach firearms instructors how to diagnose issues and correct performance for struggling shooters. Instructors are taught an algorithm to identify problem areas and shown drills and techniques to develop the skills necessary to successfully complete Law Enforcement handgun qualification. Vision issues, neurological challenges and motor skills are explained and practical solutions are provided. Coach/shooter methodology and support hand shooting are used as teaching methods to challenge instructors and teach empathy. If your agency has a remedial training program (and it should) for struggling shooters who repeatedly fail the qualification, this course could help revise your remedial program and help improve the instructors who teach the program. 


To register, or for more information about the course, go to the National Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor Association website at NLEFIA.org.
