duty handgun red dot instructor
Duty Handgun Red Dot Instructor covers all aspects of transitioning to a slide mounted, red dot sight and equips the instructor with the skills to move their officers to the RDS. 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 is an instructor level course and it is recommended that attending officers have their Firearms Instructor Certification. Non-Instructors can still attend the course as it is a perfect transition platform for new RDS users.
ARMED VEHICLE DEFENSE instructor
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.
ARMED VEHICLE DEFENSE
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.
GROUNDED & WOUNDED
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. The course split is 75% Duty handgun and 25% Patrol Rifle.
2-GUN fighting movement
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.
PATROL STRUCTURE CLEARANCE
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.
