February 17, 2021 - February 19, 2021


*** Attending officers will receive certification for 30 TCOLE hours after completion of the course (Texas law enforcement). ***

NOTE:  Attending students can register to hold their slot on this course. Payment may be made either by direct pay, check, or an approved extension to pay for the course slot due to department approval timelines. This will require a “Letter of Authorization” signed by students’ department/agency training coordinator of Office of the Chief stating the course slot will be paid in full once funds clear. Please email course instructor with any questions.

TRIARC Systems and Z Bar Supply will be hosting Tactical Options Night Vision Operator Close Quarters Combat Course 17-19 February 2020. This 30-hour program is restricted to Law Enforcement and Military personnel. The program is designed to enhance and increase mission readiness to law enforcement tactical teams on their application of Night Vision Devices and weapon capabilities in a close-quarters environment.

*** Attending officers will receive certification for 30 TCOLE hours after completion of the course (Texas law enforcement). ***

The officer and team will be trained on the principles and fundamentals of CQB while under Night Vision Devices. Officers will execute progressive stages in training on advanced clearing methods under night vision devices, surreptitious close quarters clearing techniques, non-verbal communication methods with IR lasers, Initiative based tactics, and CQB procedural flows. Team / Unit SOP will be developed through multi-team hasty and deliberate clearing methods, no-light ballistic and mechanical breach point techniques, white light clearance vs NVG and IR laser, threat reduction measures, and target discrimination applications while under NVGs. These critical skillsets are designed to enhance Law Enforcements tactical capability, efficiency, accountability and decision making, and accuracy of performance when faced with high-risk warrants or crisis situations that require the employment of night vision devices.

EOTECH will be providing a limited supply of NVGs in support of this program. This is to assist officers seeking knowledge and research on how the device and/or model can enhance your department/team’s mission capability. Additionally, attending students will have the opportunity to try other L3 models and provide practical data to their respected team looking to advance from current models.

This 3-day program includes:

  • NVG mounting configurations, helmet set-up, inspection and care, storage and transportation, environmental usage, and contingency considerations
  • Contingency thought process on body armor and kit set up: principle/sop vs shooter solution: IR markings, IR strobes
  • critical mindset development under NVGs: proactive vs reactive upon immediate threat/s
  • IR laser mounting, zero methods, and laser dial manipulation and hand control methods
  • Zero methods: field zero, parallel zero, converging zero
  • Carbine and pistol safe handling skills during low-light and no-light
  • Various carbine and pistol carry configurations: IR laser / white light
  • Grouping drills at known distances: understanding proper sight pictures and hold-offs with IR laser
  • Precision shot accuracy drills focused on low percentage shots: IR laser hold offs and pistol sight picture with white-light / no-light or RDS under NVG
  • IR laser scanning, moving and shooting and support arm control methods for carbine
  • Barricade occupation and clearance methods: hasty vs deliberate under low-light / no-light
  • Target transition / multi-threat engagement methods and recoil management techniques
  • Speed reload techniques / tac-mag reloads and threat follow-through
  • Carbine and pistol weapon malfunction clearance procedures and threat follow through under periods of darkness
  • Weapon transition and threat follow though
  • Carbine and pistol laser to light manipulation techniques and proper hand placement
  • Target discrimination: laser / white light scanning and identification techniques
  • Environmental considerations and familiarization on NVG performance with surrounding ambient / bright light
  • Introduction and definition basic to advanced CQB principles, fundamentals, and efficiency techniques
  • Planning considerations, mission equipment loadout, contingency considerations of equipment
  • OOM movement formations and techniques on exterior building approach, security establishment, verbal/non-verbal communication under low-light/no-light
  • Team designations, task and purpose, duties, and responsibilities: main effort vs supporting effort, isolation, and containment, etc. (hasty vs deliberate)
  • Window clearance procedures and/or breaching and entry methods
  • Surreptitious movement and approach under no light (NVG)
  • Free flow/initiative-based tactics efficiency methods
  • Single stack vs split stack vs angle stacking
  • Sector defined and sector control duties and responsibilities: threat, non-threat, path of travel, angles for clear shots
  • Single room / multi-room initiative-based tactics clearance procedures: room domination, dead space clearance, opposing threats and entryways, shot calls, communication, priorities of work
  • Threshold clearance techniques: single man vs cross-coverage, threat reductions during clearance, weapon transition, closed-door vs open door
  • White light vs IR laser/visible laser during periods of darkness: low-light/no-light
  • Target discrimination: threat/non-threat
  • 2-man vs multi-man room entry and clearance procedures and efficiency techniques
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication techniques
  • Hallway domination, hallway movement and clearance, single stack vs split stack movement
  • stairway clearance procedures: hasty vs deliberate, threat engagement methods, corridor establishment, coordination point establishment
  • Low-light / no-light / NVG clearance techniques, laser to light manipulation techniques, covert clearance and communication methods
  • Exterior / interior mechanical and ballistic breaching: hasty vs deliberate breach point procedures, verbal/non-verbal communication, low-light / no-light mechanical breach procedures, and threat follow-through
  • Roll player / force-on-force stress scenarios under NVGs
