The world today is changing as is the threat Law Enforcement Officers face on a daily basis.  Our training will present the officer with real world challenges ranging from tactical decision scenario’s, debriefs of previous call outs, military operations, and worst case scenario’s all while providing the advanced skills enabling LE Officer’s to place precision shots from uncomfortable and unconventional positions.

Officers attending this training will improve their observation skills and outside the box thinking.  Throughout the training, officers will be forced to engage moving targets, vehicles, and more under specific scenario’s allowing them to make a decision, then debrief it with the class.

Tyler Hughes, Lead Sniper Instructor, developed this course 4 years ago constantly updating the curriculum, the staff, and techniques to provide the ultimate training for LE SWAT Snipers. Tyler’s Advanced course has become recognized throughout California and the west coast as the “Must Attend” training event that builds skills and confidence needed today.

Our Instructor Staff are a mix of Marine Scout Snipers and LE SWAT Snipers to ensure tactics and techniques are properly administered to allow the student to best make decisions and perform their job.
