Day 1 Fighting Pistol - This is a one-day course that will push the student in problem-solving with their handgun. It brings home the importance of one-handed pistol manipulation utilizing strong side and support side while engaging single and multiple targets. The student will leave the course with an understanding of gear placement and what works in unconventional shooting situations.
Day 2 Contact Threat Mitigation - Though it’s important to practice at farther distances, FBI statistics bring gunfighting at much closer distances. Approximately 90% of gunfights occur at contact within 15 feet, and approximately 40% of those were in contact at just 3 feet. This course focuses on quickly clearing your holster and effectively delivering combat effective hits using alternate sighting methods and getting off the line of attack at those close distances.

DESCRIPTION: The SSGT Advanced Handgun: Operator Course starts with basic weapons handling, employment, and marksmanship skills. Safe and professional weapons handling procedures are trained and integrated into all phases of training. This course stresses the employment of the pistol in realistic deadly force encounters. The use of empty hand procedures are taught for extreme close quarters confrontations where use of deadly force is required to preserve lives. The empty hand procedures are taught as a means to facilitate the drawing and deployment of the pistol.
Officers will learn to fire their weapons from numerous alternate positions, deliver precise shots, and be able to transition between positions quickly to adapt to their environment. Officers will also learn to draw the pistol while under the duress of a physical attack while standing during an interview with a suspect, seated in a patrol car, or grounded in a life or death fight. This course is designed to give the officers realistic life-saving skills.
The SSGT Two-man Close Quarters Battle Handgun: Operator Course is specifically designed for those officers working in pairs while conducting their duties in an urban environment. This course begins with reinforcing safe weapons handling and application methods for close quarters operations.
A series of clearance principles are taught on a flat range that allow the officers to isolate and master common situations found during clearing operations. These fundamental principles that apply to all urban clearing operations are demonstrated, taught, and drilled repeatedly in a safe live-fire environment on a range before officers apply these skills in buildings.
The course progresses into using buildings with common obstacles and layouts to continue to reinforce the application of principles in various urban environments. Theses fundamental skills are trained and are applicable across the operational continuum IE clearing, active shooter, and rescue operations.

SAFARILAND TACTICAL BREACHING COURSE
This two-day course provides operators with the necessary tools and tactics
to deploy onto an objective and make forced entry through various tactical
tools. The two-day class covers Manual breaching, Shotgun breaching and
Flash bang breaching featuring the WallBanger Doorkey system.
COST: Tactical Breaching Operator Course / $295
The purpose behind the course is to expand the knowledge base behind
Manual and Ballistic breaching. Our hope is to get away from the age-old
practice of picking the biggest operator on the team, handing him a ram and
hoping that brute force alone will successfully create an entry point.
The breach is one, if not the most, important aspect of an operational plan. One
of our goals is to stress the importance of proper and accurate breach analysis
and planning. If the breach fails, there is no operation.
We will discuss some different techniques for the generation of power when using
breaching tools. The proper technique will speed up entries and build confidence
in your breaching teams. It can reduce injuries and extend the longevity on the
team. The course will teach you body positioning, aiming points, the various types
of breaching techniques, team movement and placement.
This course is conducted by real world professionals with strong operational
experience in their respective fields. Our instructors are either active or
former SWAT, CERT, Military and/or Supervisory professionals with years of
knowledge and experience as Instructors.
• Learn how to use breachers during drive-bys and include them in the
planning process and target analysis.
• Train snipers in what information to relay to breaching team personnel.
• Train teams to know what to look for as far as the entry point.
Students should be familiar with dynamic entry,
operator trained in distraction devices and the
safe operation of 12 gauge pump shotguns.
• Eye Protection
• Ear Protection
• Entry Gear/Raid Gear
• 12 Gauge Shotgun
(at least one per agency)
• Breaching Tools (if the student desires to train
with his own equipment)
