COURSE IN DETAIL

 

C8 Operator/Instructor and  Police Tactical Rifle Marksmanship Course [PTRM]

Developing Tactical Handling and Marksmanship Skills

 

Location: MilCun Marksmanship Complex (4 days)

 

Prerequisites: For C8A2 Operator portion, students will require Colt Canada equipment. If your agency does not have such equipment, let us know and we can make the appropriate equipment available. For the Tactical Marksmanship portion, students must have completed the Operator course for the weapon they intend to use during the course. Each student is required to bring 750 rounds of 5.56 x 45 mm ammunition.

 

Ammunition to be used is strictly police service ammunition (FED, WIN, REM, AMERICAN EAGLE, etc.), no bulk ammunition such as Norinco or military surplus will be allowed on the course as we have found it to be very problematic and sometimes unreliable during operation/training exercises.
