The Red Dot Sight (RDS) Pistol Train-the-Trainer class spans two days, incorporating classroom lectures and live fire range sessions to equip participants with the skills to effectively instruct fellow officers and train others in the use of the RDS system on-duty pistols.
The course also aids trainers in providing in-service instruction.
Each officer receives individual attention to ensure a comprehensive understanding of all presented material, enabling them to apply their knowledge while instructing others in the use of an RDS-equipped pistol.
Topics covered include structure versus strength, achieving higher efficiency with less effort, and an examination of the pros, cons, and limitations of optics available in the marketplace.
The course delves into the proper use of RDS in adverse weather conditions, strategies for overcoming challenging conditions, and considerations for both close-quarter environments and extended-distance situations.
Additionally, instruction is provided on the appropriate use of RDS in the presence of damage or glass obstruction.
Teach-backs and the application of adult learning theory are integrated into the training, ensuring that students are well-prepared to convey these lessons to their respective departments and fellow officers.
The course is open to all sworn first responders (state, federal, and local), and their participation is encouraged.
The OTOA can provide a loaner Glock RDS pistol with optic and holster for *$100 per student.
