Enhanced AR 15 Course Curriculum

The CFT Enhanced AR 15 Course is a two day sixteen (16) hour course that consists of 40% classroom and 60% range work. The following topics will be discussed in the classroom and practiced on the range through dry and live fire drills. Within a three day period we will discuss the history, characteristics, and familiarization of the AR 15. Next, we will cover the three operator inspections, care cleaning, and preventive maintenance. We will also cover the fundamentals of marksmanship, firing positions, and 50/200 meter zero. Students will engage targets at multiple distances and positions. They will conduct failure to feed, failure to fire, combat and tactical reload drills. Student will become proficient in controlled pair, hammer pair firing and failure drills. Students will conduct live fire pivots, turns and closing drills. All dry fire and live fire exercises will be done from strong side and support side firing positions, where then they will be introduced to combination positions and the use of cover. We will then close out the second day of training with a live fire skills assessment. Students will fire a minimum of four hundred and fifty (450) rounds. Each student will receive a certificate of completion from the Combined Firearms Training Enhanced AR 15 course and a statement of training for their personal records.
