The Ridgeline LE Designated Marksman Program Development course is designed to advance the students proficiency with a rifle equipped with a magnified optic. The designated marksman concept provides agencies a precision rifle fire capability that fills the void between the SWAT Sniper and the patrol officer equipped with a red dot optic. Our five-day (50 hour) course is purpose built for the firearms instructor who has been selected to provide their agency the ability to identify and neutralize threats at distance. In addition to what is taught in the Designated Marksman Course, students in this course will be provided training on how to administer Designated Marksman specific qualifications and manage their Agency’s Designated Marksman Program.
