This class is designed for individuals who have recently been assigned to SWAT and who have not received basic SWAT training. Students will be introduced to basic SWAT tactics and techniques which include, but are not limited to: historical overview of SWAT, team organization and structure, resolution of barricaded suspect situations covert individual and team movement, searches and room clearing, chemical agents, less lethal options, warrant service and multiple field training exercises.

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.
