Covington, GA – Ray Merlin conducted a RedMan / Force on Force Instructor course in Covington, GA from 25-27 September. This program provides instructors with a complete program for training their personnel in the use of defensive tactics and integrated use-of-force training programs utilizing Force on Force Training Munitions and RedMan Training Gear. Instruction deals with incorporating the instructors’ existing techniques and tactics into tactical communication, subject control, aerosol sprays, impact weapons, and lethal force. The emphasis of this program is the incorporation of firearms into defensive tactics training to overcome the tactical fixation that often accompanies duty performance that was trained in module format with no integration of the force decision-making. This program covers the full range of instruction including lecture, demonstration, Scenario development, and reality-based simulation training, and testing procedures. This course also provides the instructors with up-to-date safety procedures, cutting-edge equipment available, and procedures on how to conduct safe and realistic training.
