Hosting a training course is a great way to save money ensuring your unit or agency receives needed training and credentialing. Course hosting saves on travel and lodging costs as well as productive time away from work greatly reducing training expenditures. Hosting a training course is easy.
Listed below are the requirements necessary for hosting a training course at your facility:
PowerPoint presentation compatible classroom with tables and seating.
Access to a live fire range. 25 yard minimum distance, 50 yards preferred. For rifle courses longer ranges are necessary and will be discussed on a case –by-case basis.
The hosting agency is required to submit FNH USA Letter of Information (see contact information for Ernie Beckwith to obtain form) with the following information:
Hosting unit /agency with individual to act as point of contact.
Recommended hotel in close proximity to the host facility for those traveling to the course.
GPS coordinates, address, shipping address and driving directions to the host facility.
GPS coordinates, address and driving directions to the nearest location for emergency services.
Special needs/logistics for specific products reviewed and discussed with the FNH USA Training Manager. Example: Live fire range with greater distances for belt fed machine guns, SCUBA tanks for FN 303 courses etc..
Courses will only be conducted for class sizes of 10 or more students or as needed on a case-by-case basis. Students may come from the host agency or any other agency within the 50 U.S. states and approved foreign agencies.
1 free slot will be given to the host agency for every 10 students paid in full OR opt for the equivalent value in FNH USA product.
Courses must meet the minimum student enrollment number no later than 30 days from the course date or the course will be cancelled. Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Course dates must be submitted and approved by the FNH USA Training Manager a minimum of 45 days prior to the proposed course date. Exceptions can be made for courses that have the required number of students already on hand.
FNH USA encourages the host agency to reach out to surrounding departments/agencies and contacts to help fill course seats.
