One of our senior instructors, JdG - former JTF2 Operator with the CAF.

This is the first course in a graduated programme aimed to provide participants, with no previous experience, an introduction to tactical shooting principles, skills, and culture that they will need in order to progress to SFTP2 and SFTP3.
This course covers the following:
- Range safety - Range standing orders (rules) - Principles of tactical shooting (classroom) - Tactical weapons handling, stoppages - Static shooting - Principles of tactical trauma including Stop the Bleed® (Only at select venues)
