Active Countermeasures Tactical Instructor

This program is designed to prepare instructors to train tactical operators and/or patrol officers in how to utilize control tactics with their firearms drawn. The use of control tactics with a drawn handgun is usually overlooked in traditional defensive tactics training program. Originally designed for tactical teams for High Risk Entries, these tactics have found increased need by patrol officers. Even though burglary complaints, man-with-a-gun calls, or the response to an active shooter may result in an officer responding with his handguns drawn only to find out this has turned into a subject control situation. This program will cover the full range of instruction including lecture, demonstration, physical technique training, simulation training, and testing procedures. The emphasis of this program is to get an instructor up to speed to train their tactical operators and patrol officers.
