3 Days Level 3 Combined Firearms Proficiency


Most CPO’s looking to go into Hostile Environment tasking will now be required to demonstrate you are safe and competent before any contracting company or government will issue you with a firearm. Also, the Police in various counties or States may ask for a certificate of competency with firearms before issuing you a license or renewing one.

We have seen many individuals turn up on site in Iraq for example, with a poor knowledge and competency of the weapons systems used in today’s missions. It is because of this we are now issuing this specialised course and award just for the PSD remit.

This Firearms Competency/Proficiency Course and certificate are recognised by a number of organisations including Police forces around the world..

We have put a level 3 skill level on this course guided by the hours and difficulty.

You will be required to gain a pass of 80% before we issue you with an award.

The course combines a training room-based input with practical experience on the range with various weapon systems mainly 9mm Pistol and 5.56mm Carbine and intro to the 7.62mm Carbine. Mainly testing your Safety and accuracy whilst on the range.
