NEWINGTON, N.H., (September 24, 2019) – SIG SAUER Academy, the leading provider of the highest quality firearms instruction and tactical training in the world, is pleased to announce the California Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) Certification for its Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor Course. This certification is awarded by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, which sets selection and training standards for their 600 member agencies across the State of California. Additionally, the Commission provides guidance to departmental firearms instructors for the development and implementation of curriculum, training, and maintenance standards for their agencies.
“We are honored to receive this certification from the California POST Commission, and have the ability to offer the SIG SAUER Academy Pistol Mounted Optics course through their prestigious education certification program, and expand our reach to law enforcement within the State of California,” said Steve Matulewicz, Vice President, SIG SAUER Academy. “With the red dot technology of reflexive sights becoming increasingly more popular amongst law enforcement, the unique curriculum of this course teaches proper use and sighting techniques, along with the skills to become a certified red dot trainer within a department.”
The SIG SAUER Academy Pistol Mounted Optics Instructor Course is a two-day course designed to implement the use of a red dot reflexive sight on a pistol in a police or military application. Students develop skills to operate the sight, negotiate around obstacles, and shoot on the move. Throughout the two-day course students will record shooting data to compare performance with back-up iron sights versus the red dot reflexive sight.
This course is being offered through the Los Angeles Police Department and is listed in the California POST Course Catalog , Firearms-Sighting Systems-32063.
