4-Day Handgun Instructor Development
This is the course for you if you have an interest in part-time employment as a Front Sight Instructor. This course is FREE of charge.

Cost: Free of Charge

Prerequisite Class(s):

ALL students must show photo ID at Sign-In, regardless of age!

Front Sight is looking for a few good men and women who have what it takes. If you can distinguish yourself as a true professional in the defensive, tactical, and adventure training industry, Front Sight challenges you to become part of the most prestigious organization in the industry. Part-time employment opportunities will be extended to those who can demonstrate their skills and professionalism and, more importantly, their alignment with Front Sight`s purpose.

Qualifications of Instructor Candidates

We are looking for instructional staff to fill part-time positions as Handgun Instructors. Qualified candidates will have teaching experience in one or more of the following arenas:

  • Law Enforcement
  • Military
  • Security
  • Private training
  • Private or public education

As a staff member at Front Sight, you will be interacting with professional-level people from all over the world who have paid significant sums of money to receive training at Front Sight. Communication and teaching skills are paramount. Teaching others must be your passion, not merely your job. Front Sight can train you in the technical aspects of our curriculum, but you must provide the desire and attitude. There is no minimum education or experience level required. Front Sight conducts a criminal background check on all employee candidates.

Philosophy of a Front Sight Instructor

  1. The ability to perform on demand, exactly, what you are teaching to the students
  2. A strong desire and ability to impart your knowledge and expertise to the students
  3. Voice, posture, vocabulary, and appearance that secures the student`s respect for your position as their instructor.
  4. High moral and ethical character which leaves you behaving appropriately on and off the range.
  5. A memory that allows you to always remember what it is like to be a student.
  6. The integrity to teach your course exactly as it is outlined in Front Sight`s curriculum with no alteration to the instructional doctrine.

Job Description of Part-Time Staff:

Part-time staff is called to work "as needed". You do not need to live locally to serve as a part-time staff member. As a part-time Front Sight Instructor, your primary responsibility will be the safety and training of thousands of Front Sight students every year. Each day you will be mentored and receive additional instructor development to improve your teaching ability and keep your skills current. Part-time staff is paid an hourly wage which varies based upon your position in the organization. Part-time staff commonly aspire to higher level teaching positions. No employee benefits are extended to part-time staff and all expenses (such as travel, food, lodging, etc,) are your responsibility. Front Sight challenges its staff to maintain the highest standards of ability and performance. When Front Sight expands its full-time staff, we look first to our existing part-time staff who are proven performers.

"Deal Breakers":

Front Sight routinely trains professional people from all walks of life. Accordingly, Front Sight staff must project a professional demeanor. We require of our staff a mainstream, professional personal appearance. Tattoos which are visible while in uniform or a radical hairstyle will exclude you from consideration. Similarly, we conduct background checks on all potential employees. If you have a criminal conviction, you will not be considered for employment. Since verbal communication is so critical in our training, you must speak English flawlessly. As obvious as it seems, you need to legally own your own handgun.

Instructor Development ("ID") Course:

The Instructor Development Course (or "ID" for short) is four days long. ID is essentially a four-day interview and audition with specific performance expectations. We will dismiss participants as the course progresses who do not meet these expectations. The Instructor Development Course is structured to make you the best instructor possible in four days. During the four days, you will be lecturing blocks of instruction, demonstrating your technical skills, coaching, and running the class. You will be judged on your abilities in each of those categories as well as your command presence and attitude.

We provide our Instructor Development Course to build Front Sight`s instructional staff. We are not interested in building your skills so that you can use them elsewhere. We will ask you to sign a non-competition agreement stating that you will teach for Front Sight exclusively and for no other private firearms school. Full-time law enforcement and military instructors are welcome to apply. Similarly, part-time NRA, Boy Scouts of America, or CCW instructors are welcome to apply.

Ongoing Training

We will cross-train you into other disciplines such as shotgun, rifle, M-16, Uzi, ropes, Martial Arts, etc. based on our needs and your desires. However, EVERYONE starts out as a Handgun Instructor.

Arrive Prepared !!:

The candidates who perform the best in ID have previously taken at least one course at Front Sight. This allows the candidate to fully understand our techniques, philosophy, range commands, etc. To give you the very best chance of success, consider attending a 4-Day Defensive Handgun Course before you take your Instructor Development course.

Unattended minors are NOT allowed on the property. They must be escorted by a parent or guardian at all times or be enrolled in an appropriate course.

What to Bring

You will need 500 rounds of factory, jacketed ammunition. In addition, you will need all the usual range gear such as eye and ear protection, hat, sunscreen, etc.

How to Enroll

E-mail your resume, outlining your firearms training instructional experience to info@frontsight.com. If your resume is accepted, we will invite you to the Four Day Instructor Development Course.
