Introduction and Content

This is a 10 -hour program t hat contains 3 instructor guided Online modules, with Online test and a person-to-person virtual classroom session

The term Pistol Safety Class or Weapons Safety Training is a generic term sometimes used as part of a condition of probation required for those convicted of Michigan Penal Code violations that usually involves some type of weapon. The weapons this term generally applies to are firearms, tasers, stun guns, pneumatic, pellet, BB guns, knives and other legal or illegal weapons. This is a blended learning program that allows the user to complete the training and maintain a normal lifestyle with no need to attend an in-person classroom setting. One instructor guides the student t hough the entire process, assuring continuity of training. Training is conducted for the individual offender. This is not an open class with other people registered for the training. The training is designed to educate the offender regarding weapons and the law and to provide them with the tools and means of reducing the chance of a repeat offense. This is not training just because it is a condition of probation, and the person needs a certificate of completion. Here the offender will learn to use one of the best “weapons” to carry with them wherever they go. That weapon is “knowledge” and how to use it. No firearms or ammunition . As a standard condition of probation, the offender is not allowed to handle or shoot a live fire gun or access to ammunition The laws are layered in local ordinances, state law and federal law including the ATF . Most people have never been introduced to the laws, where to find them and how to use them. Here we have consolidated the information into an easy-to use format, along with support links to the most used websites and where to find specific sections of the law. When they complete the course , the user will have the tools to help keep them safe and avoid future violations of the law. They should never have to make an excuse for their actions and have to say, “ I didn’t know”. Because now they will know!

Each module has its own table of contents to help guide the use through the content. 1. Pistol/Firearms Safety 2. Weapons Laws and Legal Liability 3.

The Training Process and "BOOKSHELF" What is BOOKSHELF?

Documents are digitally produced using Flipping Book Software . This presents the training modules in a book/manual format that allows the user to read or flip through this as a real book. The documents are then uploaded to the Flipping Book cloud storage and retrieval systems called "YOUR BOOKSHELF". As the name implies this is a storage location for a specific user. Your Bookshelf (library) provides the user with an easy-to-use visual presentation of the documents placed on their BookShelf. The user of the documents is assigned one unique link that allows the person access to them In their bookshelf. When a document is uploaded to their Bookshelf the user is sent an e mail notice of a new document. This method keeps documents out of e mail content and there is no chance of missing a module. The course is a combination of Online content and virtual or in person classroom presentation. The probation program is presented in a module format with each module delivered to the users (probationers) Bookshelf where it can be accessed at the probationer’s discretion. The probationer can open and use the documents on the Bookshelf cloud or download as a PDF document to their computer. Downloading documents does not remove the original. For ease of use we recommend the probationer use the training modules in the book type format. The probationer will review the module content and complete an attached written test when necessary. The test results and user comments will be submitted to our office for correction and review. Probation Presentation Advantages Convenience: The probationer can complete a Pistol Safety Course and continue with personal and work needs. They can proceed at their own pace if the program is completed in the designated time as applicable. The documents are not lost in e mail content.
