PFTC Approved Learning Material

 Izalathiso Consultants has firearm learning material approved by the Professional Firearm Trainers' Council.

About our learner guides:

First of all, we strive to provide learning material with high quality contents you and your learners can always refer back to for future learning.

Our books are comprehensive, yet user friendly with detailed images and step-by-step guidance.

It is important to us to provide you with high quality contents, rather than a fancy and colourful cover page. 

 AND we need to provide it to you as a training provider at the lowest possible cost. That is why we opted for the cover pages we use.

WE HAVE THE BEST PRICES ON THE MARKET!

More on the contents below:

We strive to make the learning process a pleasant experience by providing user friendly learning material to all.

This means that the material is written in English which is easy to understand and easy to remember.

The aim of our learner guides is to include the three main learning styles: Visual, Auditory and Kinetic.


We realize that learners have individual needs and capabilities and our guides, together with your facilitator, will open up a whole new world of learning and guide you through an effective learning experience to fast track your learning experience and knowledge of the specific outcomes and criteria of the Unit Standard.


Our material is simple and easy to use for learner, facilitator / instructor, assessor and moderator alike. 

All our products are of high quality and standard, yet easy to use and affordable.


We aim to set the benchmark in high standard learning material. Our learning material is based on 25 years experience in the use of firearms in several environments and life-threatening situations varying from specialized police units to specialized units in private security. As active participants in security and civilian firearm training, specialized security training, special unit training, S.W.A.T. training, Arresting and restraining techniques training, civilian and security Crime Awareness and Victim Empowerment training, we have realized the shortfalls in effective communication during training, as well as the lack of combination of three main learning styles (Visual, Auditory, Kinetic) during course presentation.


Another common problem experienced during training or learning, is the inability by many individuals to communicate effectively in English, which is the commonly accepted "educational language" in our country.


Our books address this problem by means of understandable English, not "Shakespeare English". 

Our books contain explanations and pictures to assist the learner and enable the learner to associate a picture with a difficult word or phrase (e.g. The Firearms Control Act).

Practical courses are assisted with learner guides containing high quality explanation pictures and step-by-step guides to practical firearm handling.


This not only promotes the pass rate, but also enables learners to walk away from any course with better understanding, skill and ability.


Facilitator guides provide firearm instructors and assessors with a step-by-step guidance on the effective use of the learning material as well as a full set of model answers.

Regulation 21 Training
(Based on Regulation 21 of Firearms Control Act 2000) Act 60 of 2000)


What is Regulation 21 Training?
Regulation 21 of the Firearms Control Act 2000 (Act 60 of 2000) states:

 (viii) ensure that the security officers issued with firearms undergo at           least one proper practical training session, at the cost of the                   security company, at least every 12 months, or within a shorter             period as may be reasonably necessary in the circumstances, in the         proper and safe handling and use of the relevant firearm and                 ammunition;

So what type of training should this be?
Chapter 3 Section 14. of FCA 2000 states:
(8) The training and practical test for dealers, manufacturers,                      gunsmiths, security officers or other persons who use firearms in            the course of their business as contemplated in section 9(2)(s) of            the Act, must comply with the requirements of the South African            Qualifications Authority Act, 1995 (Act No. 58 of 1995) read with              the Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act No. 97 of 1998).

What does this mean?

Based on the Unit Standards for Handle and Use a (relevant firearm) for business purposes.
