Active Shooter Instructor – Wiesbaden, Germany
Active Shooter Instructor
This course is a modification of our 24-hour Active Shooter Instructor Course. Typically, this course takes place over three 8-hour days. This time we are conducting it over two 12-hour days. The course is offered twice for convenience and the anticipated level of interest. Please select from one of the two 24-hour options.
This course is designed to give the instructor the knowledge and skill to train first responding officers to an Active Shooter incident. Active Shooter incidents are becoming more prevalent in law enforcement and the need to train officers in how to respond has become a vital part of law enforcement training. Instructor development issues will also be discussed as students will be “hands-on” teaching practical skills throughout this course. These practical skills will be taught with its focus on tactics. Firearms drills will be taught using Force-on-Force Munitions, however, these same drills can later be applied to “live-fire” range drills or high level scenario based training.
