Heckler & Koch Resumes Training Role

back to newsroom

Ashburn, Virginia — Heckler & Koch announced today it is reestablishing its in-house product training activity and is scheduling new courses through its offices in Ashburn, Virginia.

For the past 18 months, Heckler & Koch has been partnered with Blackwater Worldwide of Moyock, North Carolina in a joint undertaking that offered armorers and firearms training. That relationship ended last month when intense criticism by German media and parliamentarians led HK to terminate the association.

“We'll be offering the full range of armorers courses on HK products to the U.S. military, as well as federal, state, and local law enforcement customers,” said Wayne Weber, Heckler & Koch Senior Vice President. “HK will also consider operator and instructor courses for the same customer base on an 'as needed' basis.”

Armorers courses will be held at the HK facility in Ashburn, Virginia, near Washington D.C. Off-site instruction can also be conducted by special arrangement.

Heckler & Koch training is open only to the U.S. military, credentialed members of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and the armed forces and police of allied nations.
