The OTOA is delighted to announce another exclusive training course for police professionals, military and armed security officers interested in improving handguns skills.

This firearms course is a comprehensive, two-day advanced pistol training day with practical applications through live-fire exercises.

This course is conducted by credentialed and experienced OTOA trainers. All OTOA training staff are tenured police professionals with specific expertise in mentoring and coaching shooters of all levels of experience with firearms.

This course does NOT involve any classroom, only range time

Course description: LEO’s assigned to plainclothes and task force units go from patrol units to specialized units and are expected to “conceal a firearm”.  

Carrying a firearm while off-duty provides similar challenges. Agencies require the annual firearms “qualification” and very often, no “training”.

The Advanced Firearms for the Plain Clothes and Task Force Officer training course will provide contemporary insights into equipment selection, advanced firearms training, Combatives, and the OTOA principles for winning an armed engagement.
