The Combat Shooting Course is designed for Military commands and Law Enforcement agencies and the private sector that want world leading, evidence based training with the best practice approach to developing and preparing personnel for combat, physically, psychologically and cognitively. This course has been developed to educate and train students in current techniques and procedures in safe weapons handling, marksmanship, critical thinking and cognitive skills to increase survivability, lethality and resilience to combat stress. This course will include live fire training and the use of reality based training that will test student performance under near real conditions.

During the course students will receive lessons to develop individual skills and drills with both pistol and carbine that relate to basic combat shooting competencies. Students will be assessed throughout the course to be able to apply the points of performance during live fire assessments and also during reality based training evolutions that have been developed to assess the students ability to think and make good decisions under stress, apply principles of combat marksmanship and demonstrate good combat behaviors.

Classroom education during the course will include a lesson on external ballistics and the 45m zero as well as lessons that will introduce students to the physiological aspects of stress on the body and mind during deadly force encounters.
