Low Light Employment

Course length: Two Days

 

Course Description: 

Recognizing that low-light training is one of the most difficult areas to maintain proficiency, we have developed the Low Light Employment course to engage students with critical skills on the handgun and then on the rifle platform to ensure a basic understanding of solid techniques that they can then develop to proficiency.

 

Proper employment of white light as a deterrent, and for positive threat identification are the most important aspects of low light and the entire LLE class it built around those goals.   LLE approaches the technique instruction with an expectation of student weapon safety and basic understanding of both marksmanship and firearms controls.   While this class does not have a pre-requisite, it will be expected for students to display basic proficiency.
