SPECIALTY COURSES

Tactical Saturated Stress Training


The Tactical Saturated Stress Training (TSST) program is an advanced three-day, high-stress training system that deals with the modern challenges facing law enforcement. Our goal for the TSST program is to provide a training system that under budgeted departments and officers can afford to train on a regular basis; keeping their basic skills level up at a higher degree of readiness. The TSST program is in no way trying to replace former law enforcement training courses. Our objective is to provide an affordable training program specifically developed to assist officers in maintaining an acceptable level of core skills, and maintain those acceptable skills level with regular training at an adequate training facility. Modern law enforcement operators have more responsibility and face more sophisticated threats than ever before. Field operators today have to cope with operational scenarios as first responders that 25 or 30 years ago would have been SWAT call-outs. Today’s environment is increasingly virulent and it is paramount that law enforcement agencies be fully prepared and properly trained in advance techniques to deal with any kind of threatening situations that presents itself. Our goals are to prepare operators to be mission ready. COURSE CONTENTS: The Tactical Saturated Stress Training program consists of multiple realistic scenarios that are essential for honing the operator’s combat mindset. Multiphase live-fire scenario stages are designed to give operators the opportunity to engage non-threat and or hostile targets with their duty handgun as the primary weapon or a combination of secondary duty weapon systems; shotgun and or patrol rifle. Different tactical live fire scenario stages require operators armed with secondary weapons to make a tactical decision to transition between different weapons systems. Our approach is to enhance the officer’s foundation of police skills, take them out of their comfort zone and subject them to levels of discipline they may not be familiar with, but are very relevant to today’s law enforcement missions. Officers will be subjected to high-speed firearms exercises, stressful tactical training scenarios, and simulations where they must demonstrate self-control, and make sound decisions while justifying their application of force. Officers will learn the importance of being flexible, fluid and ready to adjust to a variety of situations under stress. This program focuses on training officers to look at tactics as a means of solving problems; while maintaining a combat mindset. We have found over the years that well-constructed, realistic scenarios are the most effective methods of training where officers can practice, retain and focus on making good sound decisions, and not overreact to certain situations under stress. Equipment and weapon systems operators’ use in the field should be the same as used in this training. The only prerequisite requirements for this training program are that operators must have a sound foundation in the areas of firearms and tactics. Instructors can only move at the speed of the slowest operator. Operators who enroll in this program should have a basic physical level of physical fitness. On the first day, after brief introductory classroom lectures, operators are expected to hit the field running. The Instructor’s first order of business is to evaluate how familiar and competent operators are with core operational skills. Taking into consideration that firearms and tactics are perishable skills, the first phase of TSST program is to maximize operator’s skills with the handgun, shotgun and patrol rifles. This phase measures the individual operator’s tactical knowledge, and decision-making ability along with each individual operator’s skills level in the use of their duty weapons and equipment. This training system gives operators a unique opportunity to evaluate their individual skills level; identify individual weaknesses and strengths, which is huge in making good decisions in critically stressful situations. It’s important that each individual operator knows his or her limitations. Modern law enforcement operations are extremely complex, requiring good team tactics which are based on own each individual officer level of core skills; therefore, the basics must be mastered. Confidence in one’s abilities and skills as an individual is imperative for successful integration in any team environment. Each scenario event stage is set at different venues; BMTC has 12 independent live fire ranges on its facility. Operators must operate under the following conditions; unknown target distances that vary from close to extended ranges, identifying threats and non-threats prior to engagement, making decision under pressure, speed vs. precision shots, tactical movements, utilizing different types of cover and tactical shooting positions to accomplish the mission etc. Each of the timed tactical scenarios induces stress at each of the multiple event stages. Every scenario represents different threat levels of incidents that have occurred in the real world, some that have resulted in injuries and even death of the officers involved. It has been our experience that during periods of high stress, an individual will perform in almost direct relationship to the depth of his/her training. Training is a key factor in alleviating panic than any other consideration(s). In fact, panic has been described as the absence of training. Currently, most law enforcement training is on the square or static ranges, which are not sufficient for modern advanced and updated tactical/firearms training methods or technique needed. The key to developing effective training programs is to utilize knowledge of threats and have an adequate training facility to conduct advanced training. Square range training can advance officers training only so far. To implement appropriate training to meet the modern day threats and challenges an adequate training facility with the necessary room to train and experienced instructors are a must. Square range training is helpful in reinforcing the basics weapon manipulation skills; (1) weapons malfunctions, (2) reloading, (3) basic marksmanship training, (4) controlled low-light shooting, etc. Most square ranges have designated distances of fire, 3, 7, 10, 15, 25 and possibly 50 yards. These distances are usually well marked for the officer’s safety on the range. There is usually a time frame and a set amount of ammunition to be fired from the known distances. This type of regimented training institutes a set level of mechanical skills only. Skills that do not provide the levels of advanced training required to meet the challenges confronting law enforcement today. Normally in high-risk situations, you operate on visuals, hearing, or instinct and adjust to whatever the environment. There are no marked distances of fire; no certain position to be in; no start or stop signal; no time limit to engage your target and you can bet that the suspect is not always going to be positioned in front of you at a known distances or obey any commands you may give him or her, and you will not always have the perfect background to engage the suspect if it becomes necessary. Operators that have been in life threatening situations will tell you that in the real world you will react to your training to survive an encounter. Too often officers confuse theory with reality and consider that mandated monthly or quarterly firearms qualifications as training. It is not. EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS:

Operators need no special equipment to participant in this training program. The firearms/tactics exercises and realistic scenarios events allow participants to use their duty weapons and equipment. We recommend factory training ammunition, to save wear on your weapons, (personal hand loads are not acceptable). We do recommend that operators participate in the program using their duty gear, to evaluate its performance level and operators familiarize with the gear as they participate in the tactical scenarios.
The main goal of the TSST program is to train operators in a core group of tactical and decisions making skills that will better prepare the individual or team to confront violent situations and win. Your equipment must go hand in hand with your training. Malfunction equipment or equipment that has not been taking care of may put your life or that of members of your team in jeopardy. It’s important to train with the equipment you use in the field; know what functions properly and what does not.
