Live-Fire Training Facilities: Thinking Down Range - Larry Sunderlin
Range design is one part of the firearms training equation. Successful use of a well-designed range comes with additional considerations. It is critical to plan for current and future training needs. Attendees will step through the range design process looking at all factors to consider during the initial design phase through the first round down range.
Thursday, January 20 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Simulation: Finding Value in a Virtual Training Environment – Eric Perez
Firearms training has evolved. It's not gaming or even serious gaming. Simulation systems are firearms and judgmental use of force trainers that are saving time, money and lives. This session will discuss today's virtual firearms training; the benefits, the savings and the considerations necessary to develop an effective combined firearms training program.
Thursday, January 20 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
It's Not About the Shot: the Physical & Psychological Effects of Combat Stress - Randall Murphy
It's not the shot that you must concentrate on, it's what's happening inside you that dictates the outcome. With a better understanding of the physical and psychological effects of combat stress, officers can mitigate the negative physiological impact during a potentially lethal engagement.
