The CSOC POST Handgun Instructor Program being offered by the SouthWest Training Region is designed to develop instructors qualified and approved to teach in a law enforcement agency firearm program, or certification for Academy training if the participant also completes a 40-hour POST Train-the-Trainer course. The class focuses on preparing an agency instructor to coach shooters to become proficient with firearms. However, the course 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. The qualification course is available upon request. It is strongly suggested that students practice this course prior to the class.
Lead instructors are skilled and experienced firearms trainers. The class is open to both certified and sworn officers and deputies currently employed by a Colorado law enforcement agency. If you cannot attend, please notify CSOC at least 5 business days before the first day of class to avoid a no-show fee.
Within 5 business days of enrollment, each participant’s agency must submit a letter or email to CSOC stating that agency management supports and approves of the officer’s enrollment in the course and that he or she will be considered to be on-duty for the entire class. The approval email can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Attendance for all 40 hours of the course is required.
*** Virtually all of the ammunition necessary for this course will be provided by the SouthWest Training Region ***
