The IALEFI Master Instructor Development Program (MIDP) was designed to provide continuing education to individuals certified as firearms instructors. Foundation courses of the MIDP include instructor level training on the three most commonly utilized law enforcement weapon systems, handgun, rifle, and shotgun. Alternative topics such as low light concealed carry and shoot house instructor may be offered at the request of the host.
