2-day Basic Patrol Rifle Course or firearms training course of equivalent level demonstrating at least 16 hours of rifle training, at least 500 rounds of live-fire drills completed and a passing grade on a standard drill test or basic rifle qualification course.
Course Description: This challenging firearms training course focuses on patrol rifle deployment techniques and use of the patrol rifle by officers responding to rapid deployment incidents.
With the increase of incidents involving officers engaging heavily armed and armored assailants, the necessity for patrol rifles in police cruisers has reemerged with agencies across the country.
Law enforcement first responders will be the first line of defense when responding to active shooters, terrorist threats and Immediate Action Rapid Deployment (IARD) incidents.
This firearms training course takes the student beyond the basics of the rifle and introduces the patrol officer and first responder to deployment techniques that are critical when dealing with these types of incidents.
If you do not have a rifle for this class, Spartan Tactical can provide student loaner rifles, magazines and slings upon request.
