Who is this for?Teams who wish to train a group of police snipers at once, either with just their department or surrounding agencies.
Three (3) DayOur Basic Sniper is designed for new members of a team or those who have been away from the skill for a while to learn the basics of the sniper rifle, and become both proficient and safe in its deployment. The class starts with safe weapon-handling skills and then progresses in to the instruction required in order to operate a sniper rifle under variable conditions. It will then progress to encompass all the relevant skills associated with sniper deployments, and the decision-making process of using the sniper rifle system.
This course is currently only available as a Mobile Training Team Option, as our instructors volunteer their time teaching Basic Sniper Schools for the local Associations- the Arizona Tactical Officers Association & the Texas Tactical Police Officers Association. Please see their websites for more information.
