This Advanced Explosive Breacher course is in essence a continuation of our 6 day Basic/ Intermediate course. It is specifically geared toward experienced operators who possess a strong foundational knowledge and experience in tactical explosive breaching. Its intent is to elevate the operational capabilities of such operators and increase their ability to perform effectively under various conditions and changing environments.
Developed and based on years of real-world operational experience, this unique 5 day hands-on course concentrates on the tactical applications of Explosive Breaching during critical and dynamic incidents. Participants are taught the advanced skills necessary to safely and effectively implement explosive entry during high risk operations requiring unique charge constructions, expedient placements, and flexible methods of deployment in order to assure proper integration into various stages of a mission.
Important Note: For many operators who lack continuous operational deployment of explosive breaching, this course achieves three important objectives.
It serves as a documented refresher for material they were originally taught years ago but may have not since revisited.
It provides crucial updates in the fields of energetics, charge construction, common trends pertaining to LE and Military deployment, procedure and policy creation and revisions,laws and regulations, and much more.
It presents new advanced skills and methods of operation thereby facilitating forward progression in the individual breacher’s ability to apply his skill set in various environments and propel his unit’s program forward.
