Qualifications for the deployment courses



     "The action of bringing resources into effective action."

We offer a beginner's course, The Fundamentals of Handgun Marksmanship, and we also offer "Deployment" courses for both Handgun and Rifle (intermediate level).  Most beginners understand that they should start with the beginner's course, however there are a few who think they can jump straight to Deployment.  The easiest way to know if you qualify for the Deployment course is if you have already completed our Marksmanship course or an equivalent course from another trainer. This type of course gives you the knowledge for safety, handling, and basic skills which will prepare you for our Deployment courses.


However if you have not taken this course from us, or another trainer, it may still be possible that you can attend our intermediate courses.

To help determine if you are qualified for the Deployment courses, answer these questions “Yes” or “No”:


  1. Do you know the 4 Rules of Firearm Safety?

  2. Do you know what a “Sight Picture” is?

  3. Do you know how to “Set” and “Reset” the trigger properly?

  4. Can you shoot 10/10 consecutive rounds into the “A” Zone at 7 yards (25 yards for rifle) under 10 seconds?


If you answered “No” to all of these, then you are NOT qualified. Sign up for our Fundamentals of Marksmanship class.

If you answered “Yes” to all or at least three of these, then you are qualified.

If you answered “Yes” to only one or two of these questions, then you are possibly qualified. Answer these questions:


  1. Are you of sound mind?

  2. Are you well coordinated (athletic)?

  3. Do you follow instructions well?

  4. Do you go shooting on a regular basis (at least once a month)?

  5. Do you have at least 1 year of firearms experience?

You must answer "Yes" to all these questions to be qualified.  If you answered "No" to at least one, but would still like to attend, you accept that you are "unqualified" and are now responsible for keeping up with the class. If the instructor finds too many questions regarding basic skills, you may be asked to sit out the day.  It is not fair to the other paying students if the class should slow down to "teach" you things you should already know for this course.  Be respectful to your instructor and considerate of your fellow students.
