Qualifying and training are not one and the same, but unfortunately qualifying annually is all the trigger time some peace officers get, and training often devolves into simply getting personnel to a level where they can pass the state course (SQC). Shooting against the very generous par times of the state qualification course and overly-large scoring areas of the standard state target can easily lull one into a false sense of security and skill level.
