R.A.P. AIR™ Instructor Certification program



The benefits of obtaining the R.A.P. AIR ™ Instructor or Basic certifications have endless possibilities. Our training systems and philosophy are always geared for the end-user in mind. The importance of having a good force-on-force training system incorporated into your agency training program should be a priority to all law enforcement, military and security training fields. Once students have a basic set of firearms skills, the emphasis of their firearms training should be on force-on-force exercises against other students, where the basic skills are used under stress. Our training concepts can take multiple live-fire drills and convert them to a force-on-force exercise replacing static targets with role players that provide realistic target movement as well as return fire. In addition to this, future instructors and end-users will benefit from our Stress Enhanced Training Systems (S.E.T.S™) where we implement multiple versions of our tactical training principles. Understand that many of the current force-on-force weapon training systems out there call for conversions of the duty weapon or tactical weapons. While this may be a great tool in the conversion method of training, the simplicity of the R.A.P. AIR™ Systems gives the end-users the true feel of their weapons while at the same time not having to worry about suddenly getting called to a hostile event and having to change over the weapons from the conversion kits.

Courses: Our certification courses are designed to be user friendly and safety orientated. Our courses are also geared towards educating the future instructors and end-users in responding to stress enhanced environments. The following is a list of criteria and capabilities upon completing our instructor courses and our basic certification courses:

Instructor Certification Program: The R.A.P. AIR™ Instructor Certification program is a participatory 30-hour seminar. With this in mind, instructors must pass a written examination, a physical performance test of weapons handling, weapons familiarization and a brief teaching skills evaluation. In addition to this, instructors will be required to complete numerous evolution exercises. R.A.P. AIR™ Instructor status gives authorization for instructors to conduct
 R.A.P. AIR™ Force-On-Force basic certification programs. This does not imply that instructors are certified to conduct R.A.P. AIR™ Instructor Certification programs. Only a R.A.P. AIR™ Trainer who has been certified and authorized by Awareness Protective Consultants LLC can conduct the R.A.P. AIR™ Instructor Certification course. To maintain certification, instructors must be actively involved in conducting R.A.P. AIR™ training programs. Recertification for instructors is available through attendance at another R.A.P. AIR™ Instructor course or an Instructor Update course. Understand that as training systems evolve so does technology in weapon training systems.
