The SIG (Simple is Good) principle of small arms training is world renowned for its remarkable success, lack of convention, and utter simplicity.
The Master Instructor Certification is designed for the agency primary firearms instructor, teaching administrator, or senior instructor committed to maximizing the effectiveness of his or her program and instructors. Blending over 30 years of high-level competitive, law enforcement, and military special programs training into a concise philosophical and practical application for today’s armed professional, these courses allow instructors to analyze their current curriculum and practices for overall performance enhancement.

We hold our instructors to the absolute highest standard and we teach to the absolute highest standard. The SIG SAUER Academy wants to ensure 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.
The 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.
