This is a provincially accredited course, which comprises two days of class instruction via power point presentation, class discussion and hands-on practical training. Students should expect to prepare for a written exam with a mandatory 90% pass. Coached and professionally instructed range practices will consist of the last 3-days of course, with a combination of dry practice, live fire drills and discussion.
At the end of the course, each candidate needs to pass the Pistol Course of Fire.
After you get your ATC, you must re-qualify every year in order to retain the authorization. The course objectives are:
- Meet the requirements of the CFO;
- Know and understand the legal aspects in the use of lethal force;
- Develop and maintain the situational awareness and mindset to stay safe and go home at the end of your shift.
