Often times in the “Tactical” community breaching is considered an afterthought. Most teams supply the “new guy” with the ram. It’s thought of as heavy, cumbersome and archaic. Some consider it a “starter” position within team. At AGS we believe one of the cornerstones of an effective LE Special Operations Unit is its ability to reduce it’s time on target, and make entry into a variety of structures as quickly and safely as possible. Breaching is a vital capability within your team and should be tasked to mature and experienced decision makers.

Our breaching course combines classroom lecture, hands on practice sessions, and practical scenario training that encompass the skills a Special Response Team member needs to be a productive breaching team member. This course stresses operational safety standards and protocol, breaching reconnaissance, identification of fortifications and recognition of locking mechanisms. 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.
