Police Tactical Rifle Instructor

NOTE: Not scheduled in our 2013 Calendar - To ask about our "have course, will travel", contact milcun@sympatico.ca

Prerequisites: No prerequisites, but firearms training, marksmanship training and instructor experience definitely an asset.

This course focuses on the skills required to provide effective instruction for police using the tactical rifle.

The course covers the design of tactical rifle training from performance objectives to lesson plans. The student will use a fill-in-the-blanks worksheet to develop enabling objectives along with the course materials required to teach each unit (presentations and training aids, drills and practical exercises, assessments and tests). This segment will also include the use of course checklists, which the student will build during training.

The next segment of the Instructor course provides the students with a 2-day exposure to the MilCun training methods, where they will participate as students and then debrief as instructors, This segment will also cover the teaching principles that underlie MilCun instruction and the coaching methods for which we are well-known.

The final part of the course takes the participant’s own course design (developed during the first half of the course) and builds a lesson that incorporates:

Ø  Education (theory)

Ø  Demonstration (application)

Ø  Coached Practice (drills and tests)

The participants will conduct a lesson and will be coached throughout by the MilCun instructors. The entire class will participate in the lesson debrief and assessment.

 Course Assessment

Ø  Part 1 – Preparation of course design materials (25%)

Ø  Part 2 – Understanding of design applications (25%)

Ø  Part 3 – Instructing/Coaching Test (50%)

 Course Length: 5 days (0800-1700 daily, about 30% instruction, 70% practical work)

 

 

Pistol Instructor Skills:

 

Ø  Marksmanship Training Techniques - the technical fundamentals all marksmanship coaches need to teach, demonstrate and coach. We focus on the keys to shooting well and we help the coach understand how to simplify the technical aspects of marksmanship. The trainer will then have a process to follow when teaching marksmanship and when troubleshooting.

Ø  Application of Training Techniques – application of the training techniques which are the basic building blocks of pistol marksmanship: holding and aiming; safety on drills; dry firing; trigger tapping; hot and cold drills; live fire

Ø  Coaching Principles – the MilCun teaching method we are famous for. We outline our methods and techniques, as well as our focus and attitudes. We cover our progressive building-block approach, our focus on performance, our technique of analyzing what you do right, the magic of the ‘debrief’, and more.

Ø  Training Practices - application of the training practices to develop the basic marksmanship skills: grouping and zeroing; one shot at a time (deliberate fire); one shot at a time (snap fire); two shots in a row (double tap); multiple shots in a row (rapid).

Ø  Skills Analysis – how to break a complex skill (marksmanship) into teachable units and learnable drills. We cover the progressive building blocks we use in all of our marksmanship programs.

Ø  Coach’s Checklist – for coaching on the line and for troubleshooting, we provide a checklist of what we look for both to remedy a shooter who is having problems and to further develop a shooter who is doing well. The coach will understand the checklist and how to apply it to a training situation.
