About the Course:

TTPOA and the Corpus Christi SWAT Team will be hosting Tap-Tack Tactical for a 5-Day NVG Instructor Course for Law Enforcement Personnel. 

This course is designed to cover all aspects of training team members to engage threats under NVG, Case Law, Discrimination, DT, developing training programs for the team and determining when the team is actually ready to use NVG on missions.

Throughout the 5 days, students will conduct various live fire exercises designed to develop the skills needed to perform under low-light/no-light conditions. Students will also go offsite to gain experience utilizing NVG’s in real-world structures and learn the capabilities and limitations of NVG equipment.
