In the Simunition Scenario course, the goal is to train as realistically as possible. Absolutly No Live OC, Taser and impact weapons are not allowed. Live ammunition is not necessary and will NOT be permitted at any training site during the course!  If a person, in training or just observing is found to have in the posession any item that is not allowed, they and the student will be asked to leave and no refund will be granted!

Since this is an intro to Simunition training most of the course will be in class with a casual, comfortable clothing.  We will be conducting scenario-based training later in the day. At this time students will need their personal operational clothing and equipment. For this exersice DSA will provide the pistols and Simunition®.  DSA will have some extra items for basic protection but it is adviced that the student provides their own fitting protective gear.

Students should bring the following with them: duty equipment which they would normally wear; eye protection (no sunglasses); duty-belt; Appropriate footwear (No Open Toed Shoes or Heels Allowed); Athletic and seasonal outdoor clothing; Long-sleeve shirts BDU pants (No Shorts); Full body covering (recommended); ballistic vestProtective gloves; Notebook and pen.  Please contact us with any questions.
