Patrol Officer Firearms & Team Tactics Certification: 2-days (16-hours), $399.00

The use of marking cartridges for scenario-based force-on-force active assailant and MACTAC training is well known to be excellent preparation for violent incidents.

 

This course takes that preparation a step further by featuring advanced live-fire evolutions with students operating together in teams. The goal of this course is to prepare patrol officers for the realities of close quarters weapon handling during live-fire engagements. We have designed this course to meet the demand of agency trainers who often indicate they don’t have adequate range facilities or enough qualified instructors to safely conduct this critical training. Due to the growing active assailant and terrorist threat it has never been more urgent to ensure that your patrol officers are confident and competent in their weapons skill and handling while working in teams under the most stressful and difficult life-threatening circumstances they will likely ever face.  

       

This training is designed to improve the first responder’s ability to safely and effectively operate as a team against violent offenders by enhancing individual weapon skills and handling, as well as, introducing the fundamentals of team tactics and communication. This is accomplished by progressively advancing from individual skills to dynamic live-fire drills where teams of students work cohesively to reduce, contain or retreat from a threat. Officers will be exposed to live- fire movements as well as maneuvering as a team in order to more effectively and safely gain a tactical advantage during violent confrontations. This course is designed to serve as the live-fire weapons and tactics building block in attaining your agencies Tactical Patrol Officer (TPO) rating. This rating is a national trend whereby first responders are provided with advanced weapons & tactics skills.
