Our advanced tactical courses all have the same goal – provide the highest quality and most advanced tactical training available in South Africa.

The proficiency training course for tactical purposes is an advanced-level course specifically for persons who have already completed the proficiency training for business purposes and who use firearms in a work-related environment or for advanced civil home/family protection. This course focuses on the use of firearms in high-risk situations and under extreme stress. One needs to be in reasonably good physical condition to enrol on this course. This course will teach you how to win a gun fight. You will require 400 rounds of ammunition for this course.

All business purpose courses are PFTC and SASSETA accredited and are intended to give persons a higher level of training.

Western Province Firearms Training School utilizes a variety of progressive instructional techniques for all of our classes, including classroom discussion, video presentations, simulations, and hands-on experience. Small class sizes will give you extra one-on-one time with instructors and classes for different skill levels will encourage a comfortable learning atmosphere.

By completing any of the courses offered, you will become competent in the use and disciplines of firearms for tactical use. A competency certificate is issued to successful candidates and these are recognised by the SAPS as an accredited training provider certificate. You are also issued a Statement of Results from the PFTC. These certificates are a requirement from the SAPS to be issued with a SAPS Competency Certificate to possess a firearm and also a prerequisite for the application for a firearm licence.

Please note that you must have already completed the proficiency course for business purposes before you can complete the tactical purposes course.

Upon payment we will supply the necessary training manuals in order for you to complete the theoretical work contained therein. This involves homework in the form of an open-book test on the handle & use of the chosen firearm’s unit standard for business purposes.

When you return this homework, an appointment will be scheduled for the proficiency exam.

On the day you will have to complete a closed-book test and then, on successful completion, you will receive the practical firearm training.
