Subject: 16-hour SSGT Off-Duty Officer Survival: Operator Course
Instructor(s): Jack Nevils
Prerequisite: State POST handgun training and certification
*This course is one of three courses required to attend the SSGT Advanced Handgun Instructor Course!
DESCRIPTION: This course is especially designed for the Off-duty Law Enforcement Officer. Tactics, techniques, and procedures are taught to enhance the officer’s safety posture by first addressing items that can be used in defense that fit and support the officer’s cover. Officers will refine defensive skills using everyday items such as their vehicle, clothing, and props. The deployment of the pistol from deep concealed carry from a variety of positions and conditions is rehearsed to ensure the optimum protection for the officer. Advanced pistol-craft/firing scenarios are explained, demonstrated, then trained by the officers to equip them to use their pistol in any hostile engagement without regard to proximity or number of adversaries.
