***You DO NOT need to take IEP-One before taking IEP-Two***

In more than 6 years, the Apache Training Facility has provided over 5,000 hours of private instruction. In these sessions, we have made a detailed study of effective teaching techniques and individual student growth as a result. These sessions have been an invaluable laboratory for perfecting our teaching methodology, and we want to share it with you! That’s why we created the Instructor Enrichment Program (IEP).

IEP isn’t like other instructor-level courses. WHY? This isn’t a “how to shoot a better drill” class- it is a how-to TEACH a better course, and every element is designed around the question, “Did I become a better instructor because of this?”.

What sets the Apache Instructor Enrichment Program apart is that it is designed for both emerging and existing trainers who want to be better instructors.

In this 3-day course, we stay focused on growing your abilities as an INSTRUCTOR. Every participant will spend time teaching and receiving feedback about their teaching performance and leave with individual feedback about what to keep doing, what areas to improve, and most importantly, HOW to bring it all together. You will leave better equipped to build strong foundational skills in your students and with more tools for solving challenges that inevitably arise when teaching.

While you may leave with improved shooting skills yourself, you won’t just learn how to shoot drills and master courses of fire. IEP dives deep into the essential skills of great pistol shooters and breaks down why certain techniques work and how to teach them effectively. Whether you are preparing students for concealed carry/defensive shooting or competition shooting, the Instructor Enrichment Program will challenge you to be a better instructor, and your students will thank you for it.

Over the course of 3-days, students are evaluated on both shooting and teaching abilities. That said, we keep the focus where it belongs – on enriching teaching skills! Our one-of-a-kind, weighted evaluation system places a heavier emphasis on teaching abilities, allowing students with exceptional performance in the teaching portions the opportunity to earn a patch. Yes, shooting ability is evaluated, but success in this course requires a balance of teaching and shooting abilities.



To enrich the practicing trainer’s ability to teach essential pistol shooting skills.  This 3-day course focuses heavily on the most vital elements of technical shooting for self-defense. Trainers will learn effective teaching methods with a rigid focus on teaching marksmanship, simple stoppages, complex stoppages, and reloads.
