Prerequisite: Must be a graduate of a TEES Mechanical & Ballistic Breaching Instructor Course (or a recognized breaching school)
TEES Mechanical Breaching courses are valid for a period of three years. For a breaching instructor certification to remain current, the breacher must attend a re-certification course within two months of the expiration date stated on the certificate. Former TEES graduates are encouraged to attend this course as this will up-skill and recertify the breacher for an additional 3 year period.
The aim of this two day course is to re-certify the instructor in the theory, technical and lesson presentation skills considered current international best practices for mechanical / ballistic breaching.
The skills covered will focus heavily on the aspects of mechanical / ballistic breaching that effect safety and the ability to conduct an accurate analysis of a given target. Successful candidates will receive a diploma from TEES that certifies them as competent and operationally capable to fulfill core mechanical / ballistic breaching skills as required and expected of an instructor.
Course content includes:
- Review of current trends
- Shotgun breaching – safety review and practical application
- Carriage of equipment
