"Of all the training I have undertaken in the last 25 years, this is the best and most productive of the lot. I am more proud and pleased with having completed D.R.A.W. School than any other I have taken."
"D.R.A.W. School opened my eyes to how outdated the training I received and continue to teach really is! I recognized how impractical many of the "traditional" training techniques in law enforcement really are."
"D.R.A.W. School has been a blast! I have learned more due to the D.R.A.W. method. This has definitely been the most challenging, yet satisfying, firearms course in my six years of military and seven years of law enforcement experience."
D.R.A.W. School handgun training started in early 2013 as a 4-hour course designed to teach officers how to draw their handgun from a Level III holster and get it on target in under one second. From there, the curriculum quickly grew into a multi-faceted course designed to meet the specific needs of law enforcement firearms training. Special focus was also given to the unique challenges that many female officers face and how to overcome them. From there, the D.R.A.W. School firearms training and instructor training programs were merged into an instructor development curriculum to help duplicate training efforts nationwide in 2017.
Since then, the Advanced Handgun Instructor course has grown into one of the most widely used instructor development programs that continues redefine how law enforcement firearms training is conducted. From initial academy training to annual in-service training, D.R.A.W. School handgun training and instructor development courses meet and exceed all state and federal training requirements, and can be easily inserted into any agency's training program. The unique stair-step training methodology has been used by countless officers and instructors to increase their skill level far beyond what they thought they were capable of.
Combined with the design, development and patenting of the BarrelBlok safety and training aid, a completely new era in firearms training was ushered in! BarrelBlok paved the way for regular and consistent firearms training programs using an officer's own duty weapon. Now, training can be conducted and duplicated in a dry-fire classroom setting with 100% safety, 100% realism and ZERO training scars. This gives instructors the the benefit of training being able to train their officers at anytime. Additionally, when conducting live-fire training, officers are immediately up to speed and can train with great focus while using fewer rounds.
The D.R.A.W. School Advanced Handgun Instructor course is a 5-day, 46-hour course that consists of both a 6-hour online training pre-requisite class and a 40-hour in-person training.
