This five-day training is designed for law enforcement personnel responsible for deploying as a SWAT team leader, or as a supervisor who is responsible for the training and deployment of tactical teams. The focus is on pre-incident training, planning, organizing and the tactical decision-making process used in the resolution of high-risk operations.
Also included in the curriculum is an overview of SWAT training topics including selection and testing, training issues and liability, national SWAT Standards and critical incident reviews. Practical applications will consist of scouting and planning warrants, small team planning, tactics used in the resolution of critical incidents and reviewing tactical incidents and videos.
Attendees and team leaders will participate in group discussions, write operations orders and develop training plans. They will also critique and evaluate tactics and decisions based on a principal-based SWAT decision-making process.
