COURSE INFO

 
ARMED VEHICLE DEFENSE

2 DAYS - $400

LEO Armed Vehicle Defense is all about winning the fight in, into and around vehicles.  As Officers spend a large percentage of their time in or near vehicles, this course makes perfect sense to round out their defensive capabilities.  In Armed Vehicle Defense we utilize real object learning by shooting from inside a variety of vehicles, shooting through auto glass, as well as engaging threats in, through, or around cars.  Ballistic information and myths are explored with live-fire demonstration and practical application drills.  We also train a number of counter ambush drills to enhance survivability during this dangerous type of attack.  Movement, positional dominance, and tactical decision making are heavily emphasized throughout the course.  The majority of the course is taught using the duty handgun with the patrol rifle introduced on day two.   With the rifle, officers will learn positional shooting and the relevant application of those positions around vehicles.  

 
ARMED VEHICLE DEFENSE instructor

5 DAYS - $800

The LEO AVD Instructor program is designed to teach Departmental Instructors the skills needed to implement an armed vehicle defense program at their agency.  Days one through three deliver the standard AVD content with a focus on course delivery by the potential instructors.  All concepts are thoroughly covered so that every officer leaves with a complete understanding of the "why" behind a particular skill.  The final two days teach the instructors how to safely deliver the program in a low light training environment and complete the force-on-force portion of the curriculum.  Testing, qualification and evaluated teach backs complete the final day of the course.  This is an advanced class for experienced instructors already comfortable with delivering content and managing a training program.

complete leo firearms instructor

5 DAYS - $800

NEW FOR 2021  The Complete LEO Firearms Instructor is designed to pick up where most FI programs leave off.  Standard LEO FI courses primarily teach instructors to safely manage and administer a qualification program.   In Complete FI we will enhance the FI's ability to actually develop a program to increase officers' performance in a critical incident.  he course includes enhanced diagnostic techniques and how to actually coach and train officers as opposed to simply running a qual.  Additionally Complete FI participants will learn how to effectively deliver the content from our 2GFM, G&W, and Low Light courses.  This course is all about going above and beyond the standard program to effectively produce better trained officers.  The class is challenging and prospective instructors will be required to pass ALL tests to successfully complete this course.

GROUNDED & WOUNDED

2 DAYS - $400

Grounded and Wounded but 100% still in the FIGHT.   In G&W, officers learn to overcome unconventional positions, fighting from the ground, and managing compromised ability.  A variety of drills will be conducted to cover elective ground positions as well as reactive ground position and transitioning from each level safely.  Day one is dedicated to the Duty Handgun and Day two focuses on the use of the Patrol Rifle.  There will be challenging drills designed to simulate injuries that effect strength, dexterity, range of motion and pain tolerance.  All weapons manipulation skills will be covered with diminished ability using both firearms.  In addition to grounded and wounded drills officers will receive a refresher in TCCC topics including tourniquet use and will use and apply medical training aides throughout the two days.    

 
2-GUN fighting movement

2 DAYS - $400

2-Gun Fighting Movement dives head first into realistic and relevant application of movement principles with both the Duty Handgun and Patrol Rifle.  This course uses the information obtained from real LEO lethal force encounters to mold the drills to match realistic movement patterns.  Safe application of dynamic movement drills is essential to this curriculum as officers cover turning, short, burst, and long movement principles.  With the Patrol Rifle we train on the integration of movement related to cover and the positional shooting that occurs around cover.  Self awareness of skill and application of the correct technique to match the stimulus highlight the movements that occur as this course.  It breaks well beyond the typical slow, unrealistic shooting on the move that is the basis for much of the current law enforcement training.

TACTICAL 2-GUN

2 DAYS - $400

NEW FOR 2021  - Tactical 2-Gun is designed for officers assigned to SWAT, Violent Crime Interdiction, Warrant Squads or any other job in which the rifle is your primary weapons system.  In T2G we focus 1st on the relevant skills to run a rifle in confined environments, with limited time exposures, utilizing positional shooting skills (cover/concealment) and employment in a team-based environment.  Rifle work makes up 75% of this course with the remaining training focused on the efficient employment of the handgun as a back-up weapon as well as the more common use of the handgun as an alternate tool for various scenarios.  All drills conducted will require a high degree of accuracy with urgency.  The 80/20 concepts of both systems will be explained and trained with tactical context.  This course will look to set a higher standard of performance from the shooter.  Drills will be taught with the purpose of enhancing that skill and building a solid understanding of performance metrics to allow the officer to continue to grow after the course.  

 
DUTY HANDGUN RDS

2 DAYS - $400

Duty Handgun RDS covers all aspects of transitioning to a slide mounted, micro red-dot sight.  With this course we will discuss the relevant technical issues, optics, holsters and common maintenance issues.  Over the course of two days officers will fire a variety of drills designed ease transition from conventional sights, enhance dot acquisition speed, dot tracking through recoil and lateral transitions.  The strengths of the RDS platform will be highlighted while training will also include mitigation of common issues related to the RDS.   Officers will drill obscured window, dot failure and other potential problems.   This course is suited for end users as well as instructors looking to implement or pitch RDS equipped Duty Handguns.  A variety of data sources are cited to provide current trends, information and field usage of the RDS equipped Duty Handgun.     

PATROL STRUCTURE CLEARANCE

2 DAYS - $400

Patrol Officers conduct far more structural clearances than any other job within law enforcement and by a HUGE margin.  While they conduct far more of these searches, they must do so with little training on the topic and usually in very small elements.  PSC focuses on training officers to safely and efficiently clear an interior space with teams as small as two officers.  The curriculum is specifically tailored to the patrol mission set, equipment, and staffing.  This is not a SWAT class and the techniques presented are not simply attempts to transition Patrol to SWAT.  The course will cover both slow methodical clearances as well as rapid deployment rescue techniques.  Additional topics that will be covered and trained during this class include; different types of breaching and their application to patrol, occupant control and combatives, arrest and control techniques.  All of the skills will immediately be reinforced with force-on-force drills to test conceptual understanding of the techniques.  

 
 
R3 defensive handgun

2 DAYS - $450 - FoF AMMO INCLUDED

R3 Defensive Handgun is our premium defensive handgun performance class. The driving force is the R3 Concept of ensuring the training is Realistic, Relevant, and Recent.   With that backbone we dive into a program that not only introduces relevant skills but also helps the shooter build a realistic sustainment program.  Utilizing the 80/20 rule we focus the bulk of the course on the three pillars of defensive handgun use; getting the gun into the fight, keeping the gun on target shot to shot, and incorporating movement principles into the fight.  The program is adaptive to a wide variety of skill levels but all shooters should have a firm understanding of their handgun and basic marksmanship principles.  The course is open enrollment but is also perfect for armed professionals to push their handgun skills to the next level.  The skills presented are not specific to concealed or open postures so the individual can determine what best meets their needs.

 
R3 defensive rifle

2 DAYS - $450 - FOF AMMO INCLUDED

R3 Defensive Rifle is all about the realistic application of the modern rifle as a defensive tool of the armed citizen.   Just as in R3 Defensive Handgun we view the entire course through the lens of realistic, relevant, and recent concepts. The course highlights the superiority of the rifle for nearly all aspects of self-defense.  Depending on the range available, the course will cover threats from contact distance to several hundred yards. Defensive Rifle is adaptive to a wide variety of skill levels but all shooters should have a firm understanding of their rifle and basic marksmanship principles.  The course is open enrollment but is also perfect for armed professionals to push their skills to the next level.  In addition to the use of the rifle in defensive context, we will conduct a ballistic demonstration that showcases the rifles capabilities and strengths.

 
ARMED VEHICLE DEFENSE

2 DAYS - $450 - FOF AMMO INCLUDED

We all spend a good amount of time in and around vehicles and they are a constant part of our everyday life. Our Armed Vehicle Defense class will give you the opportunity to learn the skills associated with countering a threat from inside and around vehicles. In AVD we utilize real object learning by shooting from inside a variety of vehicles, shooting through auto glass, as well as engaging threats in, through, or around cars. You will get the chance to test your skills, techniques, and equipment through a variety of dynamic drills. This course covers common scenarios you may face as an armed private citizen and NOT a Law Enforcement Professional. In addition to the skills acquired, we will conduct a detailed “vehicle lab” ballistics demonstration to highlight the real results of various rounds against a vehicle. The first day and a half of the course are conducted using live drills, demonstrations, and labs.  The final half day has students put all of the lessons to use in force on force scenario drills.

 
ARMED HOME DEFENSE

2 DAYS - $450 - ALL AMMO INCLUDED

Armed Home Defense is designed to provide the home owner with the skills and knowledge to deter, detect and defend against attacks in their residence or place of business.   Participants will be taught the methods and techniques to harden the defenses of their home from all aspects of potential intrusion.  This will include defense of the interior spaces, exterior, as well as transitional movements at all entry points.  Moving on from deterrence  we will thoroughly cover interior actions and movements.  Beginning with safe room concepts and progressing to rescue movements, the skills taught are relevant to armed home defenders.  This class will NOT focus on slow, methodical clearance techniques used by LEO/Mil as they have little relevance to actual home defense tactics.   We will however cover the types of movements that will be required if you are required to leave a safe space within the home to rescue others.  This course is a mix of classroom discussion, guided skills practice, basic combatives skills in confined spaces, force-on-paper runs, and force-on-force training.

GROUNDED & WOUNDED

2 DAYS - $450 - FOF AMMO INCLUDED

The open enrollment version of Grounded & Wounded teaches armed citizens the skills required to remain in a fight and win when things are not going as planned.  We will thoroughly cover fighting positions from the ground and the strategies to avoid losing mobility whenever possible.  This component does include a basic, introductory-level combatives piece.  The course then moves on to operation of a handgun while injured, or under a condition of compromised abilities.  On the second day of the course we build on these skills by covering traumatic 1st-aid with a focus on self-aid.  All relevant skills are then vetted during force on force scenario drills.  Managing a sub-optimal situation and fighting to prevail are the core of this dynamic course that is perfect for anyone that utilizes a firearm for personal protection.
