LEO NVG CQB Course Description:

This course is designed to teach law enforcement and military professionals the tactics and techniques they need to stay alive in an increasingly dangerous workplace.  The focus of this training is the employment of helmet mounted night vision during CQB clearance problems. How do we use this massive technological advantage to best ensure officer safety as well as well as increasing the the odds of successfully accomplishing your mission.  Topics covered will include: setting up your helmet and night vision goggles, setting up your carbines and pistols to maximize their NVG integration, pistol and carbine live fire with and without NVG's, when to use white light versus NVG's and CQB with and without NVG's.
