    Night Vision Qualification Course - Request for Information

    Gents,

    My department is slowly coming around to the NVG/NODs shift in LE Tactical Operations. That being said, I am working on creating a qualifications course to ensure that the end-user is utilizing the equipment effectively and can display an satisfactory level of proficiency.

    Can any of you assist me by providing similar style firearms course of fire / qualifications course (specifically created to be shot under NODs) that you may have utilized (currently or in the past) at either your department and/or in training courses you may have attended? Anything would help me in this effort.

    If you send me a DM, I will forward you my official work email so you can feel comfortable distributing.

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    HSD

    Is there any reason you can’t shoot your regular qual only using NODs? Do you have a different qual for red dot/optic than you do for iron sights?

Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    We'd like to create a course that specifically addresses NODs in conjunction with IR designators. While there is a good argument for simply utilizing the current rifle/pistol course, we'd like to make a more "job specific qual."

    What exactly are you looking for with “job specific”?

    I would consult the larger (i.e. Higher optempo) departments in Texas on what they do. I'm sure Dallas, Houston, DPS, and the FBI would be willing to share training, lessons learned, and courses with you. I'd also look to see what non-shooting training they do with NVGs.
    The advice above is worth exactly what you paid for it.
