This is a 3 Day Training Course
Friday 5:00PM to 9:00PM
Saturday 9:00AM to 5:00PM
Sunday 10:00AM to 6:00PM
(1) IPSC ONTARIO BLACK BADGE SAFETY TRAINING PROGRAM
The "Black Badge" course teaches a combination of safety and proficiency because proficiency is important to safety. The student has to be safe at the normal speed and accuracy requirements of Practical Pistol competition. The course is designed to develop safety and proficiency in a progression. The student has to learn by doing and by being closely supervised by the instructor.
(2) YOU MUST BE SAFE
Knowing what is safe is not enough, without very close instruction and supervision the student will not realize the things he is doing which might be unsafe in Practical Pistol. The instructor must catch unsafe actions at the earliest stage and drill the appropriate responses into the student so that all actions become reflexive. Even so, at all stages the student should be told and logically know and understand these areas. Upon completion of the course, the student will be very safe and reasonably proficient; proficient enough to have fun at the matches staged by practical pistol shooters at their own clubs and at inter-club competitions.
HOW MUCH AMMUNITION DO I NEED FOR A BLACK BADGE COURSE?
A typical Black Badge requires about 600-700 rounds of ammunition to complete. To do the course requirement even once requires around 200 or more rounds and most times students shoot each course requirement quite a number of times. It would be a good idea to bring between 600 and 700 rounds just to be sure that you won't run out.
(3) NEW SHOOTERS
New students are those who have gone through a club level safety course and have been approved by their club for target shooting on the club range and who are now going through this Practical Pistol safety and proficiency course. They should already be experienced target shooters.
(4) DEGREES OF DIFFICULTY
At this stage the student should know that most of the required steps require both time and accuracy to qualify and some involve just accuracy. They student will continue to try until they complete each exercise. For some students it will come right away, while others may have difficulty with a specific stage, In any event, after several attempts have been made at a stage, the class will move on and those who haven't qualified on that stage can move on with the class and try the subsequent stages. They can go back to the earlier stages the next time the class convenes. Each student has an individual record sheet and as that student qualifies, the instructor initials the appropriate box. When the individual pages are completed, they are sent to the Black Badge Coordinator so that the student's qualifications are recognized.
When students graduate from this course, they are qualified IPSC shooters and are entitled to a provisional (temporary) Black Badge which enables them to compete in IPSC competitions. With this "provisional" Black Badge, the course graduate must safely competein their first sanctioned IPSC competition, which is the final requirement for the Black Badge Training Program. Once their signed blue provisional card is received by the training coordinator a Black Badge number will be assigned and a Black Badge issued.
(6) OTHER REQUIREMENTS
Participation in a Black Badge Safety Training Program does not automatically guarantee success. Even after all course requirements have been met, an instructor may, at his discretion deny qualification to a student due to safety reasons or a question of attitude.
