POLICE QUALIFICATION AND ADVANCED TACTICS WORKSHOP (PQAT)
8 Hours This is a one-day closed workshop for Police only. This 8 hour long course uses police qualification standards and not only builds on them, but applies them to real world practical situations. The techniques learned here will advance standard knowledge and provide members with a greater confidence in high risk situations and being safe.
The first half of the morning will focus on annual qualifications and the standard course of fire. This is the core building block for everything and will help build member confidence in both annual qualifications and sidearm use.
The rest of the day will build on the morning and develop member knowledge in advanced tactics and fundamentals. The purpose of this portion of the day is to take current member skills and apply them to real world realities and threats. We train members to advance their current skills, recognize threats and either engage or escape high risk situations quickly and safely.
Members will learn real world applications of tactical trauma care (including proper tourniquet application), as well as the familiarization and utilization of the C8 carbine in practical scenarios.
By the end of the course, members will be more confident not only doing annual qualifications, but also managing high risk threat situations.
Threats exist in the world. Our goal is to make members more confident in their ability to be safe and to triumph over any and all high risk situations that may present themselves in the line of duty.
This is a course which encourages open dialogue and team learning.
