Classroom training is essential to teach modern gun training methods to our aspiring instructors. There’s more to training than simply bringing hundreds of rounds of ammunition, showing students how to load ammunition, and then “practicing” at the range.

The Hell Week™ Pistol Instructor Training Difference

Hell Week™ Pistol Instructor Training experience.

Hell Week™ meets and exceeds state requirements nationally.

Hell Week™ is a great opportunity for aspiring and experienced instructors to learn advanced time-proven training methods, the ability to transfer shooting concepts and skills to students, and improved concealed carry concepts. Applying modern gun training methodologies, training tools, and practical teaching exercises, instructors and students see a vast improvement in their shooting skills.

There are many “become an instructor” weekend training programs available, taught by poorly trained individuals who become certified instructors in just two to three days. Training events are typically less than eight hours a day, conducted over a single weekend, and have a rushed agenda. We call these “paper certifications”. These come about because the instructor just wants to get paid at the end of the day.

Level 1 Pistol Firearms Training Hell Week™ involves more than a weekend of training. Our course regiment is focused on the education of the instructor candidate. Unlike classes such as the “Basics of Pistol Training”, we provide the instructor with more than just how to load and fire a gun. The extensive training is apparent to those who know the Level 1 Firearms Training Certification Program.

Breakout and Teamwork Sessions

Breakout and Teamwork Sessions

Break-out and teamwork sessions encourage instructors to work as a team. Instructors use breakout sessions to enhance each other’s knowledge as they grow to develop better ways to teach students.

Instructors learn small group sessions are more effective than trying to teach a massive amount of students in a large group environment. Team presentations are assigned to deepen the instructor’s knowledge and understanding while developing public speaking skills.

Advanced Pistol Training Techniques

Pistol instructor candidates At Level 1 Firearms Training LLC earn their certifications through hard work and dedication. Learning objectives are held to much higher standards than those weekend certification programs. Instructor candidates must demonstrate their ability to meet the higher standards and demonstrate the ability to transfer those skills to their students.

Instructor candidates must be able to teach students what’s expected from a drill and why it’s essential. Instructors then demonstrate the drill to verify the drill is attainable. Instructors then have their students perform the drill. Instructors provide positive feedback and suggestions on improving the students shooting skills while providing positive constructive suggestions to help students advance to their next level of shooting skills.

Firearms and the Law

Law Gravel

Each Hell Week™ event is custom-tailored to cover the many laws of your state. Conceal Carry pistol instructors must be fluent and knowledgeable about firearms and the law in the states in which they are instructing. Federal, state, and local laws are highlighted and discussed to provide an in-depth understanding of how they may affect your students. Essential topics are highlighted as what you should know when teaching a concealed carry class. Instructors are encouraged to seek legal advice on what laws they can comment about, and how to legally comment on those laws without appearing to be providing legal advice to their students.

Range Time

NRA Pistol Instructor Training Course

Extensive range time is scheduled for each Hell Week™ event. Instructors must demonstrate mastery of their craft from beginner to advanced instructor levels. Range training is at the heart of the instructor certification program. Instructors demonstrate, teach, and show the drills they will expect their students to perform efficiently.

Observation, positive feedback, and knowing what to look for when students are qualifying are essential during the training qualification process. The instructor’s primary goal when assessing students is to ensure students are safe, responsible, and proficient shooters.
