Pistol Course Curriculum

The CFT Pistol Training course is 10% classroom and 90% range work. The following topics will be discussed in the classroom and practiced on the range through dry and live fire drills. We will start out in the classroom to go over administrative items and course brief. Next we will complete the morning on the range where course assumes a baseline of competence with the pistol, which we will confirm though initial diagnostic testing. Once a common level of skill is confirmed, and any shortfalls addressed through individual remedial instruction, we will begin a progressive enhancement of each officer’s skills. In the afternoon we will discuss cover, concealment and the use of cover and individual movement. Everything covered and conducted will be explained in detail and demonstrated by the instructors of CFT.
