MILITARY / LE SNIPER

“We don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.” ― Archilochus

The role of the modern sniper is ever-evolving and so is the threat they face. This 5-day course is designed to achieve a balance of precision fire and decision making under stress while enhancing fieldcraft, observation skills and unconventional thinking.

 

Understanding the role of the military and law enforcement sniper is different, this purpose-built course will be tailored to meet and exceed the needs of your unit.

*Restricted to active military and law enforcement personnel.

OBJECTIVE

Although developed for active military and law enforcement snipers we will still begin with a core skills refresher. The primary objective of this course is to provide snipers with the necessary skillsets to plan, prepare and execute an operation under stress. 

Planning

Snipers will be placed in multiple positions of responsibility allowing them to plan and observe an operation from different points of view. This experience will create a better understanding of the considerations and coordination at all levels of the planning process. Effective planning streamlines your workload so multitasking comes easier in a high-stress environment.

Preparation

This phase will cover preparation of equipment and performing tasks required to complete the plan. Snipers will be shown how to identify areas of the operation that may require specialized equipment. During the preparation phase snipers will be responsible for performing tasks such as reconnaissance to gather information required to complete the plan.

Execution

Teams will execute their plans from start to finish exercising command, control and coordination throughout. After completing the operation snipers will conduct cadre led after action reviews (AAR) to discuss operation successes and areas requiring improvement.

STRUCTURE

This five day course is split between the classroom, range and off property locations.

Day 1
