Course description:

This one day pistol course offered by SIG Sauer is designed to enhance the pistol handling skills for law enforcement officers.  SIG Sauer has provided excellent training for law enforcement officers around the State of Vermont since they began coming here a couple of years ago.  The extremely high level of quality training they provide is why we keep inviting them back here year after year.  We are striving at the academy to bring a wider and more well-rounded variety of firearms training options for law enforcement in the area.  This class is promised to carry on that same quality of training we have come to expect from SIG. 

SIG’s website describes the content of this class as follows:

 Designed to help law enforcement officers improve their pistol handling skills and qualification scores, this all range time, no frills course offers intensive hands-on training and pistol drills to maximize accuracy, speed, and performance.
