Course Description

Designed for those officers who have completed SWAT - Basic training, SWAT - Intermediate training has been developed to further enhance the operator's skill set.

On the first day of class, officers will be required to produce a letter from their agency confirming their assignment to a departmental S.R.T., S.W.A.T., or Tactical team.  Additionally, officers will be required to pass the Georgia Semi-Automatic Rifle Qualification Course with a minimum score of 90% on the first morning. The test will be scored using 10s and 5s.
