CSA Pistol Instructor Development Course Wilmington DE
September 18 @ 8:00 am - September 19 @ 6:00 pm$425.00
This course teaches the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to developing, organizing, and teaching a gateway pistol shooting course. Instructor candidates learn to develop, organize and teach a basic pistol curriculum and demonstrate mastery through practical exercises, student-teaching, a written exam and a shooting qualification course of fire.
This is a two-day course to develop gateway pistol instructors.
Candidates will learn to develop course policies and procedures, basic public speaking skills, training methodology, use of a training team and training aids, organizing a course, and preparing to teach. Role playing is a major part of an instructor course. Candidates take turns working in teams to teach portions of the course to other candidates who role-play as students.
There will also be a written test, a safe gun handling test and a shooting qualification course of fire.
For this class, you’ll need:
- An open mind
- A positive attitude
- A reliable semi-automatic handgun (9mm or larger)
- Roughly 200 rounds of ammunition (ammo usage will depend on how many times we need to shoot the 25-round qualification course, so 200 rounds is a generous estimation).
- Eye and ear protection
- Comfortable clothing appropriate for shooting (indoor ranges can be cold), brimmed hat/cap, trimmed fingernails (no high-heeled or open-toed shoes or low cut blouses) snacks and water. If at an outdoor range, weather appropriate attire, bug spray, snacks and water
- Notebook and pens or an electronic device (laptop/tablet) for note taking
We’ll send an email to all students within a week of class with more details on what to bring and what to expect.
Note on Ammo:
We are mindful of the current ammunition shortage. We will do our very best to be conservative with ammo consumption throughout this course. The round count in the equipment list is a generous estimate, and we hope to avoid having to use all of it.
Instructor candidates must possess and demonstrate a solid background in firearm safety and shooting skills acquired through previous firearm training and/or previous shooting experience. Candidates will be required to demonstrate how to safely handle, load and unload both a revolver and a semi-automatic pistol.
