Tier 1 SWAT (40 hours)

The prerequisites for this class are TSI Advanced and Masters SWAT. It is preferred you have TSI’s Basic SWAT as well, but it is not required. You do not have to be on a tac team to attend, but it is desired. During this class we will learn how to operate pistol and carbine within close quarters combat (CQC) scenarios, perform room to room CQC as it (pertains to structures), preform approaches as it pertains to structures, perform direct to threat CQC techniques (as it pertains to schools), perform hand to hand combat, perform SWAT scenario drills with role players (HRT, warrant service, active shooter), pushing/breaking contact on approach, and perform a final training exercise (FTX). We will perform full mission profiles utilizing advanced repelling, sniper, and breacher techniques as they pertain to SWAT operations. At the start and finish of each course a law enforcement psychologist will conduct a short classroom and interview session with the students assessing cognitive ability and knowledge gained before and after the course. There will be the opportunity to PT as a class throughout the week, but it is not required. The cadre normally will set a PT time for those students that have a desire to PT as a group. TSI currently has Kinesiologist, Nutritionist, Certified Cross-fit and Strength coaches, Certified API SOCOM strength and conditioning coaches, Brazilian Ju Jitsu coaches, and Certified Psychologists available for contact throughout this course. This would be for any questions the student might have about the physical and mental stressors that combat creates on individuals.
