Overview of course

The IPSC Canada National Training program, better known as the “Black Badge Course” teaches a combination of safety, proficiency, and understanding of the international rules. The course is used to train competitors in the Action Shooting sports, giving them the basic skills necessary to participate in IPSC competitions world wide. Many students use the course to develop and or improve their personal dynamic gun handling skills as well.  A manual is provided to assist the students and will be used as a reference throughout the course.

Skills are learned by:

  • Reading the materials that are provided with this course.
  • Observing techniques demonstrated by the instructor.
  • Repeating the techniques under the close supervision of the instructor.
  • Dry fire practice
  • Live fire courses

The emphasis of the Black Badge Course is safety and proficiency. Recognizing this, many other clubs and organizations use the Black Badge Course as their standard for training or in lieu of their own training programs.

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, students will learn the safety procedures involved when moving with a drawn firearm, reloading, engaging targets under time pressure, utilizing a holster.

Students will learn the rules and practice all of these under cold conditions (unloaded firearms and magazines) before proceeding with the practical live fire part of the course.

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:

  • Drawing from a holster
  • Reloading
  • Reloading and shooting on the move
  • Moving with a firearm
  • Shooting strong and weak handed
  • Shooting from various positions
  • Target acquisition and transitions
  • Shooting around barricades
  • Shooting through door / port openings
  • Shooting while advancing and retreating and moving laterally

Both new and experienced shooters are welcome.  This course will demonstrate all of the necessary skills to shoot an IPSC action course of fire safely, accurately and proficiently.

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 International events. Black Badge Certification will allow match entry at IPSC events and is also required at many non-IPSC sanctioned events

Instructors are current IPSC members, certified with IPSC Canada and Certified Instructors with the NTO and NROI.
