This 8 hour ballistic shield course is designed to give the student the necessary skills to safely and effectively problem solve from behind the ballistic shield in a vehicle based environment. This data-driven, opposition-based course brings a holistic approach to ballistic shield training by utilizing the following foundational fundamentals of a successful shield program:

1) Mechanics: Individual performance behind the shield – marksmanship, movement, etc.

2) Layering: How to layer the shield within the environment – additional points of cover, thresholds, etc. 

3) Support: As No.2 man, how to work in conjunction with the shield operator. 

This trifecta is then applied in a vehicle based environment. 

**Training shields will be provided to students by Blue Ridge Armor LLC of Spindale NC. **
