Protective service officers should resolve to being prepared for upcoming training and qualification. Firearms training and qualification is probably the most important thing that a protective services officer should consider, and waiting until the last minute to prep is not the best strategy.
I propose that PSOs start the transition to coming to the range on a regular basis three to four months in advance. You should gain more familiarization with the unholstering and addressing of the target, and getting used to turning targets. You can do dry-fire exercises; that’s even possible from home, and there are all sorts of inexpensive tools that do not require the assistance of a certified trainer.
Of course, hiring a certified trainer is also an option. A trainer can take you through the paces and walk you through a specific course when the time comes.
I’ve seen many PSOs wait until the last minute to prep for their firearms qualifications and the results can be poor. Take the time to prep, spend some additional time at the range, and come to the qualification prepared.
