This course was developed to provide non swat officers with the same advanced tactical decision-making principles and skills taught to SWAT operators. This course does not certify officers as SWAT operators, but it does give them additional knowledge, information, and tactical ability to solve critical incident decisions and dilemmas.
The course is set up in a one-day or two-day format. The one-day course is mostly lecture and tabletop scenarios, with very minor physical tactics or movement. The focus of this course is to provide an introduction to advanced tactics and to give officers real world, relevant information they can use right now. The two-day course allows for almost a full day of practical movement, decision making and scenario-based instruction. Officers will gain the knowledge and understanding when to act and when to engage the 4 C's; contain, control, communicate, call SWAT. Attendees will learn how to stabilize critical incidents and prepare the scene fro transfer to a tactical team.
Both courses are set on the Onyx foundation of human-centered, principle-based tactical decision-making, with the goal being to develop de-escalation skills and prevent unnecessary or inappropriate uses of force.

Training Our Community Guardians
We believe the tactics developed to protect SWAT operators in their duties can be just as useful to Patrol Officers. The decision making principles and concepts that guide SWAT are just as critical and beneficial to non SWAT officers. Our human-centered, principle based police training will develop confidence in new and veteran officers, and increase competency, skills, and abilities. Confident officers perform better, and increase the public trust and improve community relationships.
