BASIC L.E. SNIPER / F.O. CERTIFICATION COURSE
This course is designed to build skills and educate Law Enforcement snipers to a proficiency necessary to successfully integrate with their team.
This course will deliver a sniper certification to officers successfully demonstrating the training thresholds established as minimal acceptable standards within U.S. Law Enforcement .
5 Day - 3 Night / 50 Hour Course
*Typically scheduled Monday-Friday.
This is NOT just a precision rifle course.
This course will cover observation, reporting and administrative considerations in addition to precision rifle fire under field conditions.
Course curriculum is comprehensive and the tasks of each day are paced at a high tempo. Individual skill assessments are made at the beginning and end of this course. Continuous feedback and data is given to
the student so that you have something tangible to document your progress.
Range time is balanced with classroom lecture to insure that each student builds to and meets or exceeds performance goals set for this class.
We will have 3 nights of Low Light / No Light instruction.
In the Southern U.S. the duration of Daylight varies from 10 to 14hrs depending on the time of the year and the weather. Accordingly, it is my opinion that even a Basic Sniper course should give instruction in night operations to officers training for a role as Sniper/F.O.
I ensure a professional and hands on environment. Emphasis is placed on continuous communication between Instructor and Student.
This class will include presentations by an Eye Physician and an
E.R.Trauma Physician to help educate officers on matters specific to the role of Sniper/F.O.
Favorable student to instructor ratios will be maintained. Because of the P.O.I. and tempo, 1 Mil Right is limiting the number of slots for this course
