The TPAD course is intended for two people to register together, (couples, co-workers, friends, etc) who are generally both armed and interested in learning about how to coordinate their efforts in a worst case scenario. The training will draw from law enforcement, military and security team training and be applied to the context of personal defense in the public space as well as being at home or in the workplace. It is suggested that students take a Combat Focus Shooting (CFS) Course from an Active I.C.E. Certified Instructor prior to TPAD to get the most out of this training, though it is not a prerequisite. Topics to be covered include:
- Review of Fundamentals of Defensive Shooting
- Communication, Coordination & Cooperation, the Three C's of Teamwork during a Dynamic Critical Incident
- Danger Areas & Fields of Fire
- Dealing with Multiple Threats Efficiently
- Coordinated Strings of Fire
- Shooting in Defense of Others (including children)
- Movement to Cover & Evasion
- Home or Workplace Defense Planning
- Emergency Trauma Medicine Basics
- Immediate Aftermath of a Shooting
- Other topics driven by student questions, context and gear.
The CFC Program applies the principals of the Combat Focus Shooting Program to the world of semi-automatic rifles, stressing efficiency, working with what the body does naturally and training in context. The CFC is a progressive and dynamic course. Students will engage in a variety of shooting drills and maneuvers designed to make their shooting (sighted and unsighted) more intuitive. In addition to the fundamentals of close quarters defensive rifling, students will be guided through handling techniques, transitions to back up weapons and understanding how a variety of factors affect their balance between speed and precision with a carbine. Improvised shooting positions for heightened precision capabilities (smaller targets & ranges out to 150 yards) will also be covered.
Students should plan on 450 rounds of ammunition for this course-400 rifle and 50 pistol. (Students are welcome to bring extra ammunition, as there will be certain drills where round count can easily be increased.)
