A Firearm Instructor is a specialized skill. It is not just about showing someone how to squeeze the trigger. 

A professional firearms instructor is a mentor, teacher, inspirer and coach. People look to you for answers on the industry. They will ask the firearm instructor what firearm is best for hunting. They will ask the firearms instructor what firearm they should buy for self defense. 

The firearms instructor is the go-to-guy when the want to assistance with firearm license applications.

On this firearm instructor course, we discuss the difference between a good firearms instructor and a great firearm instructor. How can YOU be the firearms instructor everyone refers everyone to?

Event Date: Click here

Venue: IC GUNS Indoor Shooting Range, Tshwane China Mall, Zambezi Drive, Pretoria.

Your course material will be sent to you upon proof of payment. This will allow you to prepare for the course in advance.

Although the course scheduled for a later date, there is a lot of work to be done and we want you to be prepared when 

coming to course and not have to return several times after the course is completed. 

One week for an instructor course is not enough if your research and assignments are not done beforehand.


Learning assumed to be in place:

What qualifications should you have before attempting the instructor course?

First, you must show proof that you have done the following courses:

                     117705  Demonstrate Knowledge of the Firearms Control Act                      

·         BASIC                           

o   119649                      Handle and Use a Handgun                         

o   119650                      Handle and Use a Self-loading Rifle or Carbine                    

o   119651                      Handle and Use a Manually operated Rifle                           

o   119652                      Handle and Use a Shotgun                          

·         BUSINESS PURPOSES                             

o   123511                      Handle and Use a Self-loading Rifle for Business Purposes

o   123519                      Handle and Use a Manually Operated Rifle for Business Purposes


If you do not have any of the above, we present it as a full package for only R4250. If you are uncertain, 

or have any of the above already, contact us for guidance.


You must be competent in the above categories that you wish to be an instructor for. 

So, for example, if you do not want to train people in Manually operated rifle, 

you do not have to qualify in that category or show proof that you have completed the above requirements for that category. 

However, I strongly advise that all who become instructors, qualify for all 4 weapon categories. This will allow them to teach in all 4. 

There is no additional cost to this on the instructor course.

They only cost not included is the ammunition used on course.


I strongly suggest that all who will attend the instructor course, get the books beforehand and work through the qualification shoot. 

This is not an easy shoot and must not be taken lightly. We cannot teach anyone to shoot and expect to pass the qualification shoot 

for instructor in 4 days.


Firearms and ammunition:


Firearms and ammunition are not included, and attendees are expected to provide own firearms and ammunition for the course.


Total ammunition count:

Handgun: 500 rds

Shotgun: 100 rds

Semi-auto rifle: 300 rds

Manually operated (hunting rifle) 50 rds


Course duration: 1 week

Learners who have prepared for the exam in advance when receiving the books, may write the exam on course. 

Learners who have not fully prepared, will have the opportunity to reschedule a date for writing exam.


After completing the Qualification shoot, all must attend a PFTC grading shoot, based on the Instructor qualification shoot. 

This will cost an additional R150 for the range and presence of a PFTC verifier during the shoot. 

Grading shoots may be arranged as part of the course.


Assessor and Range Officer is not directly included in the Instructor course and will require 

at least one additional day for presentation and writing exam.
