High Risk Vehicle Stops (HRVS) Instructor Workshop

Course Duration: 2 Days
Cost: $600 CDN
Course Requirements: LE, Peace Officer, Corrections, or MIL

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 in regards to vehicle performance will cover deflection, deformation and penetration in regards to utilizing vehicles as cover and concealment.

Various force on force or ‘Simunition’ scenarios will be used to analyze tactics, techniques and procedures to determine what is valid when fought with opposition and what is insufficient. Live videos that examine human behaviour 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 requirements.
