The program content focuses on the mechanical functioning, maintenance, troubleshooting, and field repair of the SIG SAUER law enforcement classic pistol line, to include the P220, P226, P229, and P239 pistols.

This is a hand’s on program that teaches and guides each participant through all armorer operations, step by step with the instructor. Active participation in disassembly and assembly procedures coupled with question and answer periods provide the type of learning environment favorable for the retention of the material. Written and practical exams are administered to test the working knowledge of each participant.

The curriculum enables law enforcement armorers to develop a pistol maintenance program on the inspection and servicing of the SIG SAUER law enforcement pistols for their departments. Following successful program completion, certification / re-certification to perform these procedures is valid for a period of three (3) years. This is of major importance to the agency as it maintains current practices and procedures for factory authorized maintenance on law enforcement pistols within the department.
