Johnston, IA – From 5-7 September, Ray Merlin conducted a Force on Force Instructor Course for the Midwest Counterdrug Training Center hosted by SSG James Lasher. In the course, we use RedMan Training Gear.
The course certified Law Enforcement and Military personnel to conduct Use of Force Training using the Force on Force less-lethal training ammunition. The training prepared instructors to provide safe and realistic training. Appropriate instructional methods for tactical isolation exercises and scenarios in realistic training were also covered. Upon returning to their organizations, instructors are able to develop Scenario and Isolation Exercise templates, select safe locations conducive to training, use the proper safety equipment, train and assign various support personnel, conduct and evaluate the tactical exercises and document the officer’s performance.
