This 3-day course will focus heavily on the necessary individual operator and team leader level skill sets to successfully conduct Close Quarter Battle (CQB) tactical operations with a heavy emphasis in the use of NODs (Night Optical Devices) and NVG (Night Vision Goggles). This course will explain the major tactical differences between deliberate and dynamic CQB to help determine which method should be used for different types of law enforcement operations for the scenario they are faced with, and how the utilization of NVG can help mitigate risk to the officers. A wide range of individual and team techniques will be taught to ensure the officers are prepared for a wide range of CQB operational challenges in mixed lighting conditions. Participants will also understand the “Hybrid” clearance concept in certain situations where deliberate and dynamic CQB tactics are morphed together to provide the officer the best chance for success in a chaotic high-risk scenario, especially when operating in low light to mixed light environments. This course will heavily focus on the characteristics, advantages, and limitations for using NODs/NVGs during tactical domestic law enforcement operations.
