Tactical teams will be required to execute specialty missions in hazardous environments, to include clandestine narcotics laboratories, “weaponized” chem/bio agents, response to terrorist attacks and contaminates such as toxic industrial chemicals.  This 40 hour course is designed to provide the officers an overview of the protective features and issues when shooting and maneuvering in protective equipment.  This course is focused on honing tactical team operational skills, working within the team environment and creating situational awareness and survival skills in high-risk situations.
