(5 days / 40 Hours)

This course is designed to provide tactical team operators with non-lethal force options. The course prepares operators to use a simple and systematic CQC system designed for apprehending subjects during dynamic entries, hostage rescue or to control a surrendering subject.

The CQC Instructor Course includes:

The Psychology of Combat Performance and Learning Principles                                           

     Survival stress is one of the primary enemies of tactical team operators.  This unit explores the relationship between heart rates and performance, as well as methods to control the operatorís heart rate in pre-combat situations.

Non-lethal Force Control for Tactical Entries

     This unit addresses the tactical applications of CQC techniques for subject resistance during deployments.  The unit examines a simple system of defensive counterstrikes.  The techniques are structured to be compatible with dynamic entry procedures without compromising operational goals.

Door Extractions and Disarming Techniques

     The disarming techniques in this unit focus on situations where an operator encounters an armed subject during an entry or when a subject comes through a doorway armed, with or without a hostage.  The student learns techniques that apply to a handgun or long gun.

Coordinated Edged/Blunt Weapon Control

     This unit is designed to address coordinated edged weapon control for dynamic entries or hostile subjects.  This unit will examine lines of attack, vital targets and quick assault combinations.  Once students have an understanding how a knife can be used, the edged weapon countermeasures unit will train operators to control edged weapon confrontations, without losing the integrity of team deployments.
