Tier 4 Handgun - Module 1

DSI’s Tier 4 - Module 1 Handgun Basics is the first module of four in the Tier 4 Combative Handgun Program. Tier 4 - Module 1 (Handgun Basics) is the first of the series and it is a comprehensive combative handgun course designed for serious students of personal protection for themselves, their families, businesses, churches, schools, and communities.

New gun owners can walk away from this series with extreme confidence in their newfound skills, and veteran gun owners will appreciate the challenge, refresh skills, and learn plenty along the way.

The series of courses will gain you the experience needed to safely handle and effectively shoot a handgun, as well as give you a base understanding of the combative skills needed to dominate a lethal force confrontation.

WHAT you will learn: New gun owners will learn to safely and effectively handle and shoot a handgun under realistic conditions, apply the combative skills needed to dominate a lethal force confrontation, and appreciate the legal ramifications of fighting to save innocent life. Veteran shooters can refresh existing skills, learn new techniques and concepts, and fill any gaps in their prior training, as well as enjoy the multiple training opportunities to advance their skill set.

The course starts with basics like wearing your equipment correctly, grip and stance, and how to safely, quickly, and effectively present (draw) your handgun, you will learn how to achieve fast hits with practical combat accuracy using intuitive fire while you lay the building blocks or extremely accurate combative sighted fire. You will begin to master the most common type of reloads and malfunction clearance you need “right now” to get back in the fight and win, you will learn to maneuver (moving with purpose) off the line of attack, to cover and - just as importantly - use it appropriately (yes - there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to use cover). And most importantly, you will learn how to use the tool of dry practice to sharpen your skills while you are between courses, off the range, at home, and at your leisure, according to YOUR schedule.

HOW you will be trained: Our Combative Handgun Program goes well beyond typical, administrative state licensing courses and basic NRA-type training. We do this with a unique training experience and support system which is presented by DSI Certified Distributed Security Advisors (DSAs) who give you personal attention and help you reach your full potential - before, during, and after your initial range training.

Why After your initial training? Because DSI knows what it takes to win a fight for life and what it takes to stay proficient, we don’t believe in nor do we offer “one and your done” type training. Instead, DSI’s DSAs will ensure you have multiple training opportunities available to you as often as possible, and they will ALWAYS be there to answer your questions and support your training efforts.

DSI's training methodology is delivered in three phases: pre-course information and guidance, intensive on-range gun-handling skills and drills, and a post-course support system delivered by your DSAs.

Pre-course materials, including curricula, equipment lists, instructional drills and videos, manuals, photos, customized training plans, and supporting references are all provided to you prior to your course through our online training portal (the DSI Defense Academy). Our self-paced pre-course study material introduces you to key concepts and techniques - and you can get answers to your questions directly from your DSA - before stepping foot on the range.

You will receive a free Dry Practice Guide, a self-paced Daily Training Plan, as well as the DSI Training Notebook to help you better prepare for your course and your own self-paced training. Your DSA will be available to you to answer your questions and hosts a weekly Live Pre-Course Q&A, where you can get your questions answered directly.

Your Range Training is fast-paced, dynamic, hands-on, and intensive. You will learn both practical gun-handling skills and life-saving tactical medicine by practicing them under the watchful eye of your DSAs. Because all of the "book learning" was done prior to your course inside the Defense Academy (DA), these 16 hours of range training are devoted entirely to learning and practicing physical skills and techniques. There is no classroom time filled with PowerPoint presentations and long droning lectures during your range training. Instead you will learn skills by the numbers with respectful, professional, and friendly local instructors who are dedicated to helping you achieve your training goals, and are available to you long after you finish your course.

Post-course, through your continued enrollment in the DA, you will have access to regularly updated training materials, including curricula, equipment lists, instructional drills and videos, manuals, and photos. You will be tied into your local Distributed Security Network via your own Private Training Group, and you will be the first to receive ongoing challenging training opportunities. Most importantly, we host thrice-weekly 30-minute Online Dry Practice Sessions where we will answer all of your self-training questions, help you sharpen your skills, and achieve your training goals between classes by using your fully customizable Daily Training Plan and your DSI Training Notebook.

Completing the Tier 4 program (or having demonstrated acceptable equivalent competencies) allows you to take the DSI Tier 4 Handgun Skills Test (T4-HST).

Students who pass the T4-HST* with 80% or better, will earn a Certificate of Completion and when used in conjunction with the Certificate of Completion from their Online curricula students will earn the DSI “Graduate” Certificate.
