Successful course credit requires a passing score on a shooting qualification test to be administered by the instructor before course conclusion. This shooting qualification is specifically developed to test the skills, safety, and techniques taught in this course. The qualification and standard will not be posted or made available. Students who do not pass this qualification will receive a certificate of attendance for the course.
We hold our instructors to the absolute highest standard and we teach to the absolute highest standard. The Sig Sauer Academy wants to insure all attendees have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to meet course standards. However, we understand each shooter is different and each shooter learns at a different level. Therefore, qualification standards allow students to quickly assess their abilities in a controlled environment in order to prepare them for the next level of training. We talk the talk and walk the walk. All Sig Sauer Academy instructors are required to pass a semiannual master level qualification course in order to maintain instructor status. Estimated round count:
