Harrisburg, Pa. ( US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is proud to announce their new Training Division is open for business. IWI US now offers firearms training and Krav Maga courses at the Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, Texas and Armorer’s courses at the Harrisburg Area Community College in Pennsylvania.

“Creating a training division built around IWI’s firearms and the Israeli methodology of self-defense was a natural next-step,” stated Michael Kassnar, vice-president of sales & marketing for IWI US. “We’ve been training law enforcement units as they transition to our bullpup platform and we’ve had numerous requests from the civilian market for the same training. Our new, centrally located, Texas facility allows us to provide this training and offer classes year round.”

The new training courses lead by IWI US national law enforcement sales manager, Tom Alibrando, offer civilians and law enforcement professionals an in-depth experience with the TAVOR® SAR and Galil ACE® platforms, as well as basic knowledge on carbine, pistol and precision rifle platforms. The TAVOR Operator courses are offered in three levels, from the most basic, which brings a new TAVOR owner from little-to-no familiarity with the fundamentals of bullpup shooting to proficiency, to the most advanced, the active level III course that incorporates the knowledge from the two previous courses and adds training in areas like moving from cover to cover, operating in low light as well as firing from unusual shooting positions.

Krav Maga courses are also available at the Texas facility. Krav Maga is the IDF’s hand-to-hand combat technique and offers an alternative method of self-defense when other means of force are not available to the student. IWI US also offers a Krav Maga course specifically designed for women which will be available in the spring of 2017.

The TAVOR SAR/X95 Armorer Training Course held at the Harrisburg Area Community College is open to law enforcement and industry professionals. The course is designed to familiarize students in the basic maintenance, breakdown and conversions for both platforms.
