11.18.16. New 2016-2017 Training Schedule Released
Chicago, IL -- Pulse O2DA Firearms Training, Inc. (Pulse O2DA) today announced their training schedule for the remainder of 2016 and 2017. The more than 30 courses and programs scheduled include individual and team tactics, combative handgun and instructor certification courses offered at both The Site Firearms Training Center and Davenport Guns.
Ron Danielowski, Co-founder and Chief Instructor commented on the popularity of their three-day Tier 3 Individual Tactics program:
Our last Tier 3 Individual Tactics program sold out with 18 students paying $1,495 for the three-day event held at Davenport Guns. This program is designed for those who want to master armed self-defense in the home, or on the street and integrates combative handgun training with 15 escalating reality based training (“RBT”) scenarios.
Bill Tallen, VP Tactical Operations described RBT in more details:
Reality based training is a type of simulation or “force-on-force” training that provides stress inoculation. Stress inoculation allows the student to experience what violence looks and feels like during a lethal force confrontation without actually having to be in a lethal force encounter.
All Pulse O2DA on-range students are supported by the world’s most comprehensive on-line firearms training portal - the O2DA Defense Academy where they find pre, concurrent, and post training support resources including curricula and instructional videos, manuals, photos, customized training plans, case studies and community. The skills and techniques they learn on-range can be reviewed and studied on-line anytime 24/7 365 days a year.
