Finest Instruction Staff In the Industry -- Bar None. Here's Why...
Front Sight Firearms Training Institute boasts the finest instructional staff in the industry. That's because to become part of Front Sight's elite instructional staff, an instructor must first successfully complete our four day, Instructor Development Program to the exacting and professional standards set by my example and supervised by our cadre of certified Range Masters. This is not an easy task. The criteria for graduation from Front Sight's Instructor Development Course are so far above the industry standard, that fewer than one out of ten participants make the grade in their first attempt. Even seasoned law enforcement and military instructors are humbled, yet grateful for the experience to learn what it takes to be part of the greatest instructional staff ever assembled in any industry.

Those instructor candidates who do not make the cut the first time around, but
demonstrate professional level teaching skills, a customer service attitude,
and a willingness to study and practice their instructional skills to the
levels required to become a Front Sight Instructor are invited to return to the
four day Instructor Development Course and repeat it until they are certified
to wear the Front Sight Instructor uniform.
Even after successfully completing the Instructor Development Course the
training continues through daily "Ongoing Instructor Development" blocks of
instruction to fine-tune and polish our instructors' teaching and communication
skills. These intensive blocks of instruction and correction guarantee the
highest degree of consistency, efficiency, and ability in Front Sight's entire
What does all this mean for you - our student? It means that when you arrive at
Front Sight you and your entire family will be treated with the utmost respect
- in a friendly, supportive, and caring manner - by the absolute best trained,
most consistent, and most effective instructional staff in the industry. I
guarantee it, because I am Front Sight's Founder and Director.
I was in the Marine Corps for over 20 years, serving in infantry units or at
formal schools, and I was also a Primary Marksmanship Instructor and that
experience did not prepare me for what I learned at Front Sight's Instructor
Development course. After attending the Instructor Development course, I knew
that I truly did not know that I did not know. I came on board as a Line Coach
in the Submachine Gun program and tried to learn everything about Front Sight's
curriculum. I attended Ongoing Instructor Development training to improve my
skills and was promoted to Instructor. I am now proud to say that I Range
Master the Rifle and M-16 courses and I would not have achieved this status
without having attended any of the Instructor Development courses.
Front Sight Firearms Training Institute Range Master
For years I have taught classes to Law Enforcement Officers and CCW Permit
Holders here in Northern California. The Instructor Development Course put on
by Front Sight was one of the most enjoyable weekends I've ever had on ANY
range. The Instructors were first class and the fellow students attending the
course were some of the nicest folks I have ever met. The course format opened
my eyes to a variety of instruction techniques and how Front Sight operates.
The experience helped me fine tune my lecturing ability and has enhanced my
supervision skills while on the range. I'm going back as soon as I can.

I am a full-time police officer and a member of our SWAT team. I am also proud to
be an instructor at Front Sight. Front Sight has developed, and continues to
improve on, an Instructor Development curriculum that by far exceeds what
police firearms instructors receive. Front Sight is absolutely, positively
leading the firearms training industry!
