The RDS Instructor Program was developed by training with industry experts, as well as professional development and implementation of pistol optics into a large police agency. This course will begin in the classroom and include lecture and group discussions regarding the current Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) used by various departments, as well as their Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) when it comes to RDS pistols. The most durable duty-grade optics will be reviewed with a thorough breakdown of the advantages of each system.
Learning will then transition to the range where users will learn proper application of the RDS pistol in a modern Law Enforcement environment. Topics will include zeroing procedures, proper presentation and acquisition, focal planes, dot tracking, multiple targets, malfunctions and movement; all with a focus on efficiency.
Whether your department has transitioned to an RDS program and you are looking to maximize your personal potential or if you are trying to implement this technology in your agency, this is the course for you. This course will cover in depth RDS research and development, data driven document recommendations, industry adopted testing and standards, as well as building a professional level business proposal.
Students will be tested on their ability to retain and communicate information in relation to the RDS pistol, as well as pass a written examination and two qualification shoots.
Successful students will receive access to the research materials, numerous dry and live fire training exercises to implement within their own organization, as well as be invited to a private ABD Concepts Instructor Group on social media for continual education and problem solving.
