This is a hands-on school where students practice tactics and techniques in the field.

The OTOA Basic Sniper School is intended to provide the new sniper/observer with a base of training to make that person operational. Topics that will be covered include sniper marksmanship training, intelligence gathering and reporting, field craft, data collection and practical scenarios. The course is based on an eight-hour training day and will be conducted regardless of weather. However, we train to standard, not time, so be prepared to train beyond an eight-hour workday. Students must pass the FBI Sniper Qualification Exam, OPOTA Qualification Exam, and a written exam to successfully complete the course.
