The course goal is to deliver a high level instruction on the basics of Knowledge, Skills and Attitude necessary for any individual considering a career in Law Enforcement or owning their own handgun for sports shooting.

However, you may simply desire to overcome your fear of guns. This course also suits those individuals who require a more tailored instruction of personal development and at the end of the course you will gain the knowledge, skill and attitude that will shift your belief that guns are something to be afraid of. This could not be further from the truth, the handgun is no more dangerous than the motor vehicle you drive to work every day.

The course is designed to run over an 8-hour day and course participants will gain knowledge on all the necessary safety aspects of handling, inspection and serviceability of the handgun, the use of the handgun, the relevant legislation relating to firearms in general and the basics on Firearm Safety.

Course participants will then partake in a practical qualification shoot at the firing range, where there will be a Senior SIG ACADEMY Firearms Instructor and Range Safety Officer to put you through your paces, which is designed to ultimately entrench the knowledge learnt earlier in the day. Here you will re-enforce the dry practice skills learnt at the Academy thus developing the right attitude to become a smarter, safer and more confident handgun owner and or shooter.
