What is the foundation of the Defensive Pistol Instructor program?
There are two components to this answer: 1) The foundation of the methodology taught for instructors to deliver the course, and 2) the foundation of the techniques taught.
The methodology on which this instructor credential is based roots from two components:
1. The research developed by Bruce K. Siddle on the transfer of technical skills. The course includes an original copy of Bruce K. Siddle’s book: Sharpening the Warrior Edge so you possess the original research in its integrity that will be discussed during the “Instructor Techniques System” component.
2. The research developed by Bernard Martinage for the “Accredited Educator” and “Accredited Coach” credentials he developed for a company that serves Fortune-500 Companies and hosts over 4,000 certifications annually.
The Safe N Secure Instructor Technique System is exclusively made from Bernard Martinage’s work that has lead him to be nominated three times as a Faculty Speaker at Commencement at a world renown college.
The work is organized to remove any redundancy with the training provided by the NRA in its “BIT” (Basic Instructor Training).
The firearm techniques presented and taught in the materials are serious, proven and effective. They were extracted from Police Special Operations training and modified to meet the reality of self-defense at home and on the street. The techniques and strategies are simple, effective and straight to the point. They have been endorsed by military and law enforcement personnel in multiple states as well as Firearm Instructors and Training Counselors.

Challenging road to leadership

It is a challenging but rewarding course for those that desire to achieve an exceptional instructional opportunity. This course is based on basics of firearm safety, tactical shooting principles and application of these basic in real world situations. The course was executed in a thorough and flawlessly manner as usual by the DrOpZOne cadre. I would highly recommend this course to any qualified certified instructor desiring to obtain this level of instructor credentialing/training.

This makes nine classes that I have successfully taken from the DrOpZOne. Each class builds on the previous classes. Classes are tough and demanding. These last two classes, topped off my confidence for teaching. I am also very confident that I can protect my family and myself. I know when I take a class from the DrOpZOne I will be successul. This is my training place.
Top Notch Training
Posted by Kirk on Aug 5th 2013
I have completed all my Instructor training at the DrOpZOne. It is by far the best place to get the hands on professional training you are looking for. The instructors are there by your side to teach you the skills you need no matter what level of experience you have from beginner to advanced. I recommend the DrOpZOne to anybody wanting to better their skills or who what to become Instructors themselves.

Bernard and David once again set the bar higher than the NRA. As always, you can count on the attention to detail with these two instructors. Why train anywhere else?
