INSTRUCTOR: NRA LAW ENFORCEMENT FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR
LENGTH: 28 Hrs
This course is designed to meet the requirements necessary to obtain a Florida Security Guard G License. It consists primarily of 20 hours of classroom lecture that covers license protocols, State of Florida Statutes, general do’s and don’ts, legal issues, use of force laws, firearm safety and a review of marksmanship. This course concludes with eight (8) hours of live-fire exercise where students demonstrate their knowledge on basic and advanced handgun handling and safe shooting skills. Students are provided with required certificate upon completion. The State of Florida charges separate processing and license fees.
This section of the course covers applicable portions of Chapters 493, 775, 776, and 790, Florida Statutes, as well as civil and criminal liability issues in connection with the use of firearms.
OPERATIONAL FIREARMS SAFETY AND FIREARMS MECHANICAL TRAINING – 8 HOURS
This portion of the curriculum is intended to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the mechanical operations of a firearm and how to handle firearms safely.
A written examination of 100 questions will be administered covering the portions of the curriculum dealing with legal use and operational/mechanical training.
FIREARMS QUALIFICATION – 8 HOURS*
This segment of the training course includes practical exercises in the handling of firearms – stance, grip, sighting, etc. – as well as topics pertaining to range safety and range commands. The instructor will require students to fire 144 rounds as part of the firearms qualification for initial licensure (1 cycle of 48 rounds of practice fire +2 cycles of 48 rounds). No more than eight hours of the 28 hours of training shall consist of range training.
*A Class “K” instructor can at his or her discretion administer as few as 5 hours of range qualification training if the student demonstrates sufficient mastery of the core principles of safe firearms handling (to include shooting a qualifying score) without the full 8 hours of range training. However, reducing the number of hours of range training will require teaching additional hours elsewhere in the curriculum so that the cumulative total of firearms training amounts to 28 hours as required by s. 493.6105(5), F.S.
