BERETTA ARMORER TRAINING COURSE GUIDELINES

In order to maintain the Beretta weapons in excellent serviceable condition - ready for trouble free field performance - and extend their service life at minimum cost, armorers must have an in-depth knowledge in appropriate maintenance.

The Beretta Armorer Training Courses are designed for the Law Enforcement/Military armorer, firearms instructor and technician. These courses provide complete, detailed answers to specific questions concerning the mechanical functioning, operating procedures, field stripping, inspection, trouble shooting, and maintenance of our firearms.

Courses are held both at the Beretta USA facility in Accokeek, MD or in the field. Please contact our administrator for details on scheduling an In-Field class.

Each firearm is covered in a one-day course and is open to law enforcement officers, military, and security personnel.
The fee for each course is $300.00 per student
.

Certification will be provided by Beretta U.S.A. upon successful completion of the class and is valid for a period of 3 years.
