Beyond Fundamentals focuses on refining core concepts of marksmanship and introduces the student to concepts of shooting while moving. Enabling objectives include comprehension of the shooting cycle, draw stroke refinement, active visual processing dills, reloading and malfunction clearance exercises, and demonstrated control over one's shot tempo. High repetition is used to codify technique and to provide immediate feedback to the student. A score of 80% or better on the final test is required to pass.
