COURSE OVERVIEW The purpose behind the course is to expand the knowledge base behind Manual and Ballistic breaching. Our hope is to get away from the age-old practice of picking the biggest operator on the team, handing him a ram and hoping that brute force alone will successfully create an entry point. The breach is one, if not the most, important aspect of an operational plan. One of our goals is to stress the importance of proper and accurate breach analysis and planning. If the breach fails, there is no operation. We will discuss some different techniques for the generation of power when using breaching tools. The proper technique will speed up entries and build confidence in your breaching teams. It can reduce injuries and extend the longevity on the team. The course will teach you body positioning, aiming points, the various types of breaching techniques, team movement and placement. COURSE BENEFITS This course is conducted by real world professionals with strong operational experience in their respective fields. Our instructors are either active or former SWAT, CERT, Military and/or Supervisory professionals with years of knowledge and experience as Instructors. • Learn how to use breachers during drive-bys and include them in the planning process and target analysis. • Train snipers in what information to relay to breaching team personnel. • Train teams to know what to look for as far as the entry point.
