Annual Personal Weapon Test and Training (APWTT)

199.00

The PrepYou.Eu Annual Personal Weapons Test (APWT) is part of our Citizen Soldier Program and has been designed for civilian shooters who wish to have professional-level firearms training with a benchmark of their current ability (and skill fade) as well as being able to identify areas they need work on to progress through the three APWT Levels. This package is also available on the Sunday Session.

Description

Annual Personal Weapon Test and Training (APWTT) is based on the British Army’s yearly shooting and weapon handling test that must be passed by ALL troops regardless of their roles within the military. “Teeth Arms” like the Infantry are expected to score higher than Non-Teeth Arms (Such as logistics, medics, engineers, etc) and is part of the awarding procedure to achieve Marksman Status and for those good enough, to progress on to a Sniper Cadre (Sniper Training course).

All APWT attempts are recorded as a video certificate which can be minted as an NFT Certificate for professional use.

Please Note – This training package can be taken on any Sunday Sunday Session.

The APWT typically consists of various courses of fire designed to assess Shooters’ marksmanship and proficiency with their personal firearms. While specific details may vary based on the weapon systems and training doctrine in use, a typical course of fire for the British Army APWT may include the following stages:

1. Pistol/Rifle Qualification: Shooters are required to engage multiple targets at different distances using their standard-issue Pistol, such as the L85A2 (SA80). This stage assesses marksmanship, accuracy, and proficiency in firing from various shooting positions.

2. Pistol/Rifle Handling Drills: Shooters demonstrate their ability to perform essential Pistol handling drills, including loading, unloading, and conducting immediate action drills to clear weapon stoppages or malfunctions quickly.

3. Rapid Engagement: This stage evaluates Shooters’ ability to rapidly engage multiple targets within a specified time limit, simulating the demands of combat situations where quick and accurate shooting is essential.

4. Fire and Movement: Shooters may be required to engage targets while advancing or manoeuvring through a simulated battlefield environment. This stage assesses their ability to effectively engage threats while on the move and in coordination with teammates.

5. Scoring and Evaluation: Each Shooter’s performance is scored based on factors such as accuracy, speed, and adherence to safety protocols. Scores may determine individual proficiency levels and eligibility for certain assignments or roles within the military.

Overall, The PrepYou.Eu APWT is just like the British Army version and aims to ensure that Shooters maintain a high level of proficiency with their personal weapons, enabling them to effectively contribute to military operations and fulfil their roles in combat situations.
