The Instructor Workshop (IW) class is an open forum where GLOCK Professional instructors and students exchange ideas, range drills and real-world experience on how to most efficiently train large numbers of students on the GLOCK pistol. Class length is two and a half days (20 hrs).

The G-18 Select-Fire (G18) class is a one-day (8 hr) course, and covers both armorer and operator instruction for the GLOCK Model 18 pistol.

Armorer training

Armorer training is very important. Learning how to maintain, service and repair GLOCK pistols properly could literally make a difference between life or death. Any firearm that is incorrectly assembled could lead to an unexpected malfunction, which is why GLOCK firmly believes that anyone servicing a firearm must have factory-certified training.

GLOCK Professional currently provides factory certification as an ‘armorer’ with a basic and an advanced class throughout the United States and Canada.

Basic armorer training

In the basic Armorer’s Class (AC), students learn to maintain and service all GLOCK pistol models. In this one day (8 hr) class, students are taught about the design of the SAFE ACTION® System, detailed disassembly and reassembly of all models, recommended service schedules, and parts replacement. Certification is granted for a three year period.

Advanced armorer training

In the Advanced Armorer's Class (AA), students review basic armorer information and progress into more specialized diagnostic and inspection procedures. Students also identify issues and problems set up by instructors for a variety of GLOCK pistols including six different calibers and all four generations of GLOCK firearms. This two day (16 hr) class utilizes past and present GLOCK models. Students receive a five year certification.

Operator Course

This training course is designed and intended for public safety professionals who have successfully completed a basic pistol course and want to improve their skills. This course is not recommended for those who have not attended official training programs. This course is a dynamic shooting course that requires the ability to stand for long periods of time, shoot on the move, move into and recover quickly from kneeling and prone positions.
