Our requalifications training program enhances each law enforcement officer's ability to safely handle required weapons. This requalification program affords each law enforcement officer the opportunity to maintain their agency firearms requalification standard.

FLETC’s seven-range, 108 point indoor firearms complex will accommodate requalification courses of fire for handguns, shotguns, automatic weapons, and rifles. Firearms training sessions may be scheduled from two to eight hour durations, and also for multi-day programs.

Agency Specific Firearms Curriculum Development Service

FLETC Cheltenham offers agency specific firearms curriculum development services to law enforcement agencies. These services provide FLETC an opportunity to facilitate and administer safe, effective and proven firearms practices, procedures and techniques used by law enforcement.

FLETC law enforcement professionals consult with agency representatives and training personnel to assist in the creation and design of specific firearms related training programs, lesson plans and courses of fire. After the agency approves the curriculum, FLETC provides viable recommendations and solutions to appropriately integrate the training into the agency's mandated training requirements and mission-specific duties.

This beneficial firearms curriculum research and development service affords agencies a cost-effective approach to stay on the forefront of state-of-the-art weaponry, law enforcement tactics, and safer procedural techniques.

FLETC’s mission is to provide the highest quality, state-of-the-art law enforcement training to meet the needs of the law enforcement community. FLETC staff is proud of its creation and fostering of a world-class partnership with law enforcement agencies to produce basic and advanced law enforcement training.
