Less Lethal OCAT and Expandable Baton
Less Lethal OCAT and Expandable Baton course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to receive the most current and up-to-date training techniques in the field of less-lethal munitions. This course combines classroom lecture and range drills, with an emphasis on the skills necessary to combine the practicality and effectiveness of OC aerosol and a straight baton, including comprehensive instruction in technical, operational and tactical applications.
To ensure students have a full understanding of the subject, they are then asked to “teach back” in their own words key concepts, decisions or instructions discussed during the lecture period. Range drills consist of a number of tactical applications and scenario-based force-on-force training exercises. Participants use simunition and protective gear to role play through actual scenarios. Each scenario is critiqued then debriefed by the instructors.
Upon completion of the course and successfully passing the final exam, the student may provide in-service training to their agency in specific areas for 36 calendar months from the testing date.
