Students can also schedule for the actual qualification course test.  Thirty rounds and 7 stages make up the course of fire...the test CANNOT be taken on the same day as the training session. Students passing the F.A.M. qualification course are considered to be among the top one-percent of pistol shooters in the world.  (THIS IS NOT AN EASY COURSE OF FIRE!) Students who pass the qualification course test will be issued certificates of their top one percent status.
