Pre-requisites for the 1501 small arms training course: Prospective students must never have been convicted of a felony or any crime of domestic violence. Each student will be required to sign and attest that the above is true.
Individuals who have been small arms qualified are required to complete annual re-qualification.
The purpose of the 1501 Small Arms Training and Qualifications Course is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to safely, responsibly and effectively employ small arms in individual and unit self-defense of Department of Defense assets to the standards set by the Chief of Naval Operations.
Proper mindset and the use of “deadly force” are examined and discussed in depth. Over the course of four days, students qualify with live fire on three weapons: Pistol, Rifle, and Shotgun. Additionally, the training requires the students to demonstrate their competence in the proper care of the weapon(s) and requires a practical demonstration of their marksmanship.
Two days are spent on an outdoor range so students need to bring appropriate seasonal clothing and always consider rain gear. No shorts, T-shirts or Open-toed Footwear.
