POST Handgun Instructor Course (HRLETF)

The Handgun Instructor program is designed to develop instructors to teach in a law enforcement agency firearm program and can lead to certification for Academy training if the participant also completes the required POST “Train the Trainer” 40-hour course. The class focuses on preparing an agency instructor to coach shooters to become proficient with firearms and is not a remedial training course for poor shooters. POST currently requires that all students must qualify on the POST firearms curriculum on the first day of class with a 100% score.

Please see the attached link for additional information and to Register for the course:

Equipment: Each participant will need a semi-auto pistol with 3 magazines (service weapon), 800 rounds of ammunition, 5 green or orange dummy rounds for the weapon, protective eyeglasses, ear protectors, standard uniformed-duty leather gear including a holster for the service weapon, a flashlight, handcuffs, ballistic vest and clothing appropriate for classroom and outdoor range training.

If you have any questions, please contact the Greater Metro Training Region.
