Practical Red Dot Course


The Practical Red Dot System (RDS) Certification course is an expanded two-day training program designed to elevate law enforcement officers’ proficiency with red dot sights in patrol roles. This course emphasizes the critical importance of mastering the RDS system, enabling operators to maintain threat focus while performing clear target assessments, thereby enhancing accuracy and situational awareness.

Day one of the course delves into the fundamental aspects of the RDS system, including zeroing, maintenance, and nomenclature. Participants will receive detailed instruction on optimizing their RDS for consistent performance, essential for effective patrol duties. The second day introduces advanced tactical applications, such as shooting around barricades and moving while engaging multiple targets. These additions are designed to simulate complex operational scenarios, challenging officers to apply their RDS skills in dynamic, high-pressure environments.

In compliance with TCOLE course #2529, successful completion of this course results in a certification in RDS system operation. This training is vital for officers aiming to utilize the full potential of RDS technology in modern law enforcement scenarios, preparing them to meet the evolving demands with enhanced tactical capabilities and improved situational awareness.
