Description

Course is designed to be comprised of either four 8-hour class days or twelve 2-3 hours classes with the intent of making it more accessible for active duty police officers with busy schedules. The course will cover a wide range of topics all necessary to make the student a near-expert with a patrol rifle upon successful completion. The course will conclude with a rigorous "pass or fail" qualification course of fire. Students who successfully pass the course of fire will receive a uniform pin and certificate indicating "successful completion" of the course. Passing the qualification course of fire is not intended to be a requirement for CLEE credit. Students that do not pass the qualification course of fire will receive a certificate of attendance and will have the opportunity to attempt the course of fire at a later time (within one year) in order to successfully complete the course and receive the certificate and uniform pin.
