High Risk Vehicle Stops (HRVS) Instructor Workshop
Course Duration: 2 Days
Cost: $600 CDN (plus taxes)
Course Requirements: Active LE, Peace Officer, or Military
The HRVS Instructor Workshop takes a critical look at the traditional way law enforcement deals with potentially armed offenders in vehicles. An extensive ballistics demonstration regarding vehicle performance will cover deflection, deformation, and penetration regarding utilizing vehicles as cover and concealment.
Various force on force or non-lethal training ammunition (NLTA) scenarios will be used to analyze tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to determine what is and is not valid when fought with opposition according to human behavior. Live videos that examine these subjects will be reviewed in relation to operational HRVS applications. This is a problem-solving course that will run until the objectives are completed; please come prepared.
NOTE: If an agency is hosting a VCQB 2 or 3-day course, the HRVS Instructor Workshop can be added as a single day of training at a reduced cost. If this is the situation, please contact us for clarification and logistical requirements.
