Essential CCW Skills Module 2

Course Description

Responsible and effective concealed carriers need skills beyond the gun, and the ability to make rapid, correct decisions in ambiguous scenarios with unclear goals. This course introduces the concealed carrier to methods for managing ambiguous scenarios using verbal agility, verbal commands, de-escalation, escape and evasion, as well as low light considerations, use of force considerations, OC/pepper spray use, basic field trauma care, the 911 call and interacting with the police/investigators, and the course culminates in participation in Image Based Decisional Drills developed by Brian and Shelly Hill of the Complete Combatant.
