The ATC Purpose
The purpose of the Annual Training Conference is to provide seminars on subjects of vital interest to law enforcement firearms instructors. Experts are invited to provide an introduction and understanding of their specialty so that attendees can evaluate the need for additional training or equipment. The “ATC” will also provide you with the opportunity to meet fellow firearms instructors from around the world enabling you to exchange information, ideas and training techniques. Furthermore, our Corporate Sponsors will provide you with an opportunity to speak directly with the manufacturers and distributors of firearms related equipment. This equipment represents the latest in firearms technology.
Registration is open to all IALEFI® current members and pre-registration is mandatory for participation in the ATC! If you are not a current member of IALEFI®, but wish to participate in the ATC, you must make application prior to the commencement date of the conference. If you intend on submitting an IALEFI® membership application you may do so accompanied by your ATC registration. IALEFI® will expedite your paperwork and process your ATC registration at the same time. You will be notified as soon as possible.
You must be a current member of IALEFI® to participate in the conference… There are no exceptions to this rule!
The registration fee is $495.00. The spouse fee is $40.00 which covers the cost of the banquet meal only. You can download the registration form here. Mail completed registration forms with the fee, or, agency purchase order to:

Support Equipment Requirements
IALEFI® will have a limited amount of ammunition available for sale at the ATC. However, you should plan to bring or ship sufficient ammunition for your participation in revolver, auto-pistol, shotgun, long gun, and sub-machine gun training courses. The exact course equipment requirements are listed following each course description! Also, only the use of frangible ammunition will be allowed to participate in any range activity that requires steel targets, unless noted otherwise.
All range activities require the wearing of a baseball type hat with a brim, wrap around eye protection with side panels, and full hard ear muff protection. Soft insertable ear protection can be used in conjunction with the hard muffs, but not in lieu of them.
Attending International Members
IALEFI® has available through our corporate sponsors a number of various weapons which can be used by our attending International members while at the conference. You will need to make arrangements through the IALEFI® Business Office in advance to utilize these weapons by calling (603) 524-8787, or, via email at: email@example.com. Ammunition can be obtained at a nominal donation through IALEFI® Emblem Sales at the conference should you not be able to make prior arrangements on your own. PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Only U.S. Nationals may attend armorer classes without having an authorization from the United States Secretary of State granting permission.
If you choose to ship your support equipment to the ATC in advance, you must utilize our shipping labels. Feel free to duplicate as many of the shipping labels you need, but be sure to use them. Your shipment will be signed in when received and placed in a secured area. IALEFI® will pick up all participant shipped items and you will be able to retrieve them on Sunday, May 5th, during the registration process at the hotel.

2019 IALEFI® Memorial Match
If you wish to participate in the IALEFI® Memorial Match, you must be pre-registered to do so. Please indicate your desire to participate on the registration form and add an additional $20.00 which covers the cost of the match registration fee. Be sure to check your age bracket and the caliber of the weapon you will be using for the match. Steel targets will be used and three classifications of shooters will participate according to age, and there will be a maximum of 100 participants.
You will need to bring your own duty firearm and support gear. Your holster must be a duty rig or concealed rig with jacket. Ammunition for the match will be generously supplied by IALEFI® Corporate Sponsor, Winchester. There are no assigned shooting times. The match will run 1400-1700 hours on Monday, May 6th. Again, whereas the match will run according to age bracket, make sure you indicate your age on the registration.
