About This Course

This course builds upon the tactics taught in the ACADEMI SWAT I course. The first day starts with a firearms warm-up, including a pistol and long-gun qualification course, and provides a review of the topics covered in the basic SWAT course, including a basic clearing refresher. The remainder of the course will use classroom and practical instruction to develop advanced techniques used for building clearing and other tactical scenarios. Students will use these techniques in challenging, practical situations to create a solid foundation that will enable them to plan and execute a warrant service and hostage rescue.

This course is open to all officers who conduct warrant service, fugitive apprehension, SWAT operations and drug search warrants who are in need of sound tactics and techniques to conduct these operations efficiently and safely.
