Course Length - 40 Hours / 5 Days

This 5 day progressive weapons course covers the proper employment of both primary (tactical shotgun) and secondary (handgun) systems in both a lethal and non-lethal status. This course includes intensive instruction for the corrections operator who has a basic understanding of both weapons systems. This hybrid course also reviews issues related to the use of non-lethal force, in that correctional operators may enter a situation prepared to utilize deadly force but it is more likely a less-lethal application may occur.
