Description

Explosive Breacher PictureExplosive entry continues to grow in American Law Enforcement as a viable tactical option for high risk warrants and hostage rescues. The number of explosive breaches has increased over the last few years but remains relatively low compared to the number of tactical teams in the United States. In this five-day course, explosive entries will be made through Class 1 Steel doors as well as solid wood and hollow core doors. Participants will learn the construction of distraction devices and the use of other explosives by conducting approximately 60 detonations using various amounts of explosives to ensure proper logging, placement and application of methods used to make entry in a safe but affective manner. The TEEX Explosive Breaching course is geared toward increasing the knowledge and skills of SWAT, Tactical, and EOD teams.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements Course #78025.
