This instructor level course is intended take our 2 day end user course to the next level. The course will expose the student to our end user course while being taught the “How” and “Why” behind the set up. We will go into great detail about the safety aspects of conducting this type of training, so when students take the concepts back to their agencies, they will have the knowledge to mitigate risk and maximize training time and resources.

This course will have a steady mix of hands on training as well as classroom time to discuss case law, video footage relating to breaching and training set up. We will also set aside one full day to discuss our “Train the Trainer” philosophy and teaching methods we use to relay the material, enhancing instructor development.

*Students will be required to perform teach backs on day 4. Students will run the entire class on the last day of training. *

*Students will also be required to complete a written exam. *

Students will practice a variety of breaching techniques to include, ramming doors, halligan bar applications, sledge hammers, the use of window keys for “rake and break/port and cover” techniques, thermal cutting, applications for a quickie saw, and shotgun breaching. Techniques in this course will also be performed during night time (low light) hours.
