When utilizing proper optic techniques a person can deliver accurate fire on targets at different distances when needed.
Law enforcement utilizes marksman/ snipers in certain situations. For example, a sniper can end a dangerous hostage situation with a single shot. This is done because the sniper is very well familiar with the optics used. The training is specifically designed for those wanting to learn how to utilize an optic mounted on a rifle. Scenarios will be conducted during the training.
The optics course is an intensive 4 day course which covers an introduction to optics, marksmanship, weapon selection and maintenance, weapon manipulation, shooting fundamentals and target engagements for the familiarization of the optics used, camouflaging as a pass time during breaks and wind evaluation techniques.
