    Default Firearms Instructors Course - Double Weekend Edition - end of November!

    Good day everyone!

    One of the issues that most of us face, is the wish to continue with training and qualifications, but simply not having the time available for it.

    ITA recognized this, and agreed to assist the shooting community in obtaining their goals.

    Not long ago, a tactical firearms course was held over two consecutive weekends - a huge success! And following that, we've received multiple requests for a Firearms Instructors Course in the same format.

    This allows the busy professional and civilian alike, to commit to further training and qualifications, without having to take time off work. The course runs over two weekends, starting on a Friday evening through to the Sunday afternoon.

    The next course will be held on 20-22 November (first half of course), and again on 27-29 November (second half of course).


    The ITA courses are Internationally recognized and accredited locally by:


    • SASSETA (Safety And Security Sectoral Education Training Authority)
    • PFTC (Professional Firearm Trainers Council) No 041 967 474 377
    • SAPS (South African Police Services) No 4000004
    • PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority)
    • ITA also guarantees recognition (RPL) with this qualification for any future accreditation that may be required in South Africa.

    Hi guys,

    Due to the overwhelming demand for the Firearms Instructors Course in this split-weekend format, we've pretty much filled up all the available spots. We can fit another two people max!

    If you haven't contacted Russel yet - do so quickly! This remains first come - first serve!

    Next course in this format will only be considered next year some time.

    Hi guys,

    There is a last minute rush of people who want to join the course at the end of this month.

    Please note that the current weekend course is already filled up, with a bit of a waiting list of people.

    ITA will arrange a second course running from the 7th - 11th of December, if you still want to complete the Instructors course this year. This second course will run from a Monday - Friday.

    If there is enough people on the second course, then we can motivate for another split-weekend format rather, for December.

    So please get in touch with Russel soonest and let him know your preference (weekdays or weekends).

    Don't forget to mention your on Gunsite for that little discount as well ;)
