This course continues where Level 2 ends and is a more advanced course.  You will review skills from the previous training but perform them as a team and add many additional skills such as working with the tactical rifle. 

Students will be expected to have excellent communication skills, understand different types of active shooters and their tactics, identify potential explosives, have advanced medical skills, door breaching, outdoor tactics, ambush, and more.

This course will be done with Force-on-Force utilizing Simunitions marking cartridges.  This is an extremely real form of training which highly induces stress!

Not only will you will learn skills that will make you a valuable member of any Active Shooter response team, but you will have the skills to put together a well trained team.
