In order to ensure that the high level of training required to become a Smith & Wesson Firearms Instructor is being maintained, we require that all Smith & Wesson Firearms Instructors be re-certified by our Academy every three years.
We suggest that Academy certified instructors attend an update and recertify annually, and require recertification within three years of completion of the Firearms Instructor course to maintain qualified status.
Students are encouraged to bring their own issued firearm and duty gear.
Ammunition is included in the tuition fee.
This program has a prerequisite of the Smith & Wesson Academy's Firearms Instructor two week course.
Course Length: 5 days/32.5 hours - Approximate class time 8:00AM – 4:30PM
As always, the staff at Smith & Wesson Academy urges you to take at least one training course per year and to broaden your training experiences as much as possible.
