SWAT Certification Course #3301, December 5th- 9th, 2019
Dec 5 – Dec 9 all-day

SWAT CERTIFICATION COURSE # 3301

12 HOUR TRAINING DAYS

Instructor:  Tim Bulot

At Weaponsacademy our SWAT Certification Course is not just another check the box course, our goal is to train and prepare Officers for real world high risk situations. This course exceeds requirements and is considered by many to be the most comprehensive package available at this price point.  Many SWAT courses offer no live fire weapons training. We understand that your agency may not have the time or the capacity to conduct specialized weapons training so with this in mind our course includes an intense but very safe weapons training package.

Weaponsacademy has the facility and instructors to conduct live fire room entry.  This training module is in turn followed by a comprehensive live fire interior movement and room combat SWAT team training module conducted in our ballistic shoot house.  The module concludes with student’s executing numerous types of simulated operations against barricaded subjects, wanted persons, high risk welfare checks, hostage rescues, active shooters and terrorist situations.  All of these scenarios could easily unfold in our communities.

As a LEO of over 30 years now and having spent almost a third of those years overseas, I believe in the “overskilled” approach in training personnel beyond a level in which we all hope to never go there.  I am still current and active and everything I teach is based on personal encounters and experiences.  Send your personnel to Weaponsacademy for training and I promise to give them my very best in preparing them for the dangers we face while maintaining the highest professional standard.

This course does not contain physical training however it is very demanding due to the intense nature of training in full gear and moving about the facility for the many different drills and exercises.

TOPICS INCLUDED INTHIS COURSE:

  • Tactical Terminology
  • Equipment Orientation
  • Assault Process
  • Operational Planning/Operations Order

High Risk Patrol Tactics Course, January 23rd-24th /2020
Jan 23 – Jan 25 all-day

High Risk Patrol Tactics Course

“Tactical training for street officers”

 

COST $189.00 

 

Officers are being ambushed at an increasing rate while responding to routine calls. The time is now upon us , ALL Officers who respond to Calls for Service MUST be tactically trained. The HIGH RISK PATROL TACTICS Course is our newest course designed just for this reason. I’ve compiled the best of my 30 plus years into this 20 hour course with the intention of teaching the Officer as much tactical information possible over two days. These are not watered down active shooter only tactics based around a single situation. The tactics taught in this course apply to any and ALL situations Officers face, rural or urban environments. At $189.00 you will not find a better package taught by a more experienced instructor. Some of the topics taught include:

  • How to Properly Set Up a Plate Carrier
  • Understanding Categories of Attack
  • Important Survival Considerations
  • Aspects of Stress Response
  • Close Range Encounters, Live Fire with Pistol and Rifle
  • Firing from Disabled and Disadvantage Positions
  • Individual and Small Team Movement (1-3 Officers)
  • Exterior Movement, Vehicle to Hard Cover
  • Exterior Movement, Hard cover to Vehicle
  • Interior Movement, Live Fire Shoot House, 1, 2 and 3 man Tactics
  • Vehicle Hard Points, Long Range Encounters
  • The Approach and Contact Phases of the CFS
  • Vehicle Approach on High Risk Calls
  • Vehicle and Officer Down Scenarios
  • Equipment and Vehicle Usage
  • Training/Working in Daylight and in Darkness

Much More……

I have always taught and to this day believe it is on the individual Officer to see to it that they have the best training possible. Most Departments are overwhelmed and burdened with scheduling and providing the many mandated course required these days. NONE of these have anything to do with Officer survival. It is for this reason that I keep my price VERY REASONABLY and anyone who has taken one of my course will tell you that I give you my 100%, every course I teach! You will work hard in this class any you will leave with fresh knowledge and more familiar with tactics that you will be able to employ on your very next shift, should the need arise. We all want to go home every day to our families I have committed myself to training as many Officers as possible so that we all go home!
