Overview of course
The IPSC Canada National Training program is better known as the “Black Badge” course. The course is used to train competitors in action shooting sports and give them the basic skills necessary to participate in IPSC competitions world wide or to develop or improve personal gun handling skills. A manual is provided to assist the students and will be used as a reference throughout the course.
The Black Badge course teaches a combination of safety, proficiency, and understanding of the international rules.
The Black Badge Course contains both a theoretical and practical component. Students should expect to spend up to 4 hours in a classroom environment and 12 hours on the range. Here, they will learn the safety procedures involved when moving with a drawn firearm, reloading under time pressure and utilizing a holster. They will learn the rules of the game and practice all of these under cold conditions (unloaded firearms and magazines) before proceeding with the practical live fire part of the course. Students will be observing techniques demonstrated by the instructor(s) and will repeat the techniques under the close supervision of the instructor(s). Upon mastering the techniques the student will engage in live fire courses.
A full day and a half is spent on the range, where students will practice the skills needed for IPSC style competitions. These include but are not limited to:
. Reloading and shooting on the move
. Moving with a firearm
. Shooting strong and weak handed
. Shooting from various positions
. Target transitions
. Shooting around barricades
. Shooting through door / port openings
. Shooting while advancing and retreating
Upon completion of the 2-day course the students can expect to be very safe and sufficiently proficient to allow them to compete in competitions at local clubs and at Provincial, National and lnternational events. Black Badge Certification will allow match entry at any IPSC events.
