DEFENSIVE FIREARMS TRAINING
Responsible Training for Reasonable Canadians
CAPS Use of Force Training
2-Day $ 400.00
The theory and legal aspects regarding the use of force, defensive mindset, awareness, threat evaluation, relevant firearms laws and defensive planning are central to the Use of Force Program. Theory covers the human dynamics of confrontation and the essential issue of reaction time. Threat analysis and after the fact articulation and justification of the use of force are major issues that are discussed in detail.
The program makes extensive use of the CAPS DVD judgment training system as a teaching aid and culminates in putting your defensive shooting skills to the test. Facing life-size humans on the CAPS system's screen you prove your ability to properly assess dangerous situations and deliver gunfire when and where necessary.
You may already be fast and accurate with a powerful gun but in a self-defence situation you must also be right.
At the end of this program the student will have proven decision-making abilities and receive a certificate that attests to their skill and understanding of the proper use of force with a firearm.
Requirements for CAPS Use of Force Training:
- A valid Restricted Possession & Acquisition Licence.
- Students should bring paper and pens for note taking.
This training is conducted exclusively in a classroom environment with "non-firearms" supplied by CAPS Inc. and not at a shooting range. As such, do not bring any firearms or ammunition to this course .
Video cameras and sound recorders are not permitted in the classroom.
