Terry Cross – Lead
Jim Gilliland – A.I.
Full time Law Enforcement, Military or Military Reserve/NG. Successful completion of a Basic SWAT school. Must provide current domestic U.S. - L.E. Credentials or U.S. Military Credentials.
Attendees should have at least minimum basic equipment as listed on the student info sheet and be familiar with all kit.
This is NOT just a precision rifle course. This course will cover observation, reporting and administrative considerations in addition to precision rifle fire under stress and field conditions.
Course curriculum is comprehensive and the tasks of each day are paced at a high tempo. Individual skill assessments are made at the beginning and end of this course.
Continuous feedback and data is given to the student so that you have something tangible to document your progress.
Range time is balanced with classroom lecture to insure that each student builds to and meets or exceeds performance goals set for this class.
3 nights of Low Light / No Light instruction. In the Southern U.S. the duration of Daylight varies from 10 to 14hrs depending on the time of the year and the weather. In my opinion even a Basic Sniper course should give training in night operations to officers preparing for the role of Sniper/F.O.
I ensure a professional and hands on environment. Emphasis is placed on continuous communication between Instructor and Student.
Favorable student to instructor ratios will be maintained.
Because of the P.O.I. and tempo, 1 Mil Right is limiting the number of slots for this course to 12 seats
