    MPTC Reserve Firearms Course Overview

     

    The MPTC Reserve / Intermittent Academy now offers a firearms training program as part of the recruit curriculum. In line with the abbreviated nature of the R/I Academy, this firearms program dedicates 20 hours to building a base level of proficiency for the recruit. To increase the amount of material presented to the recruit, a portion of the classroom material is being presented in this online format. The material selected for this presentation has been selected because it can be readily self-taught.

     

    As with all recruit level training, the assumption is the recruit has no prior experience with firearms so safety is our paramount concern. You will be walked through the basics before you are expected to handle tactical exercises. Recruits with prior firearms experience through hunting, target shooting or in the military should not feel this basic information does not apply to them. Law enforcement use of the firearm differs greatly from what you may have experienced as a civilian or soldier. This program will greatly assist you in transitioning for your new role.

     

    The MPTC Recruit Firearms Manual (RFM) is the “student manual” for this program. This online student manual is designed to provide you with an abbreviated version that will present the material in a clear and concise manner so that you will be able to complete the review questions at the end of the program. If you have questions after completing the online module, your instructor will set aside a block of time in the first training session to answer them.

     

    The full time academy dedicates over twice the training time for this topic that makes this program a challenge for both the recruit and the instructor. It must be understood that this program is merely the first step in what must be continuous training. Twenty hours is only sufficient to give the new officer the basics in safety and marksmanship. It is not enough to turn out a proficient marksman. Building the officer’s proficiency will be the joint responsibility of the officer and their department firearms training staff.
