FAMS Pistol Training

Does anyone here have any idea as to what the firearms training specifications are for the Federal Air Marshal Service?
I'm curious as to how their courses are set up, how the scoring is done, the amount of ammo used and any other information that might be pertinent.
Does IDPA or any other training regiment like that have anything set up similarly to what the FAMS uses?
I'd like to see what they have and what kind of course they use. Any information that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Here's one drill they use: Triple Nickel.

Okay, here's another question that came up in discussion while some friends and I were talking about the FAMS pistol courses: What is the allowability within Federal Agencies when it comes to the use of Laser Sights on duty handguns?
