Tactical Firearms Instructor Certification – Handgun (TFIC-H)


October 29, 2019 @ 8:00 am - November 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm



Course Overview

PFC’s TFIC-H is a complete 4-day pistol instructor program designed to impart the fundamentals of teaching handgun skills and managing pistol training for armed professionals. TFIC-H standards exceed every state, military, federal or commercial firearms certification process currently in existence. Students must successfully pass 6 examinations scoring no lower than 100% on 1 and no lower than 90% on the remaining 5. Training includes safety, instructor development, risk analysis, remediation, development of live fire evolutions, as well as progressive operation of the semi-automatic handgun weapon system. Evaluations consist of a comprehensive written exam, dry fire Limited Scope Performance Test (LSPT), Live Fire Skills Test (LFST), classroom presentation, student-led live fire evolution, and construction of a hazard-mitigating Risk Analysis Tool. Graduates will be able to safely instruct students in combative handgun fundamentals as well as develop and run essential live fire evolutions or qualification courses.


Due to the proprietary information taught in this program, TFIC-H applicants are screened on a case-by-case basis. Graduates of this instructor program will be provided with a detailed manual and training curriculum authorized for use within their own organization, department or unit.


Pre-requisite: TFIC-H is not a “how to shoot” course, and as such, students who lack shooting skills upon arrival stand a very low chance of successfully completing the Live Fire Skills Test, which will only be administered a limited number of times. Registered applicants may request a copy of this skills test for practice prior to the course.


Enrollment: Open to law enforcement, Department of Defense, government agencies, active security professionals.
