In the Simunition® FX® Scenario Instructor and Safety Certification Course, the goal is to train as realistically as possible. Live OC, Taser and impact weapons are not allowed. Service ammunition is neither necessary nor permitted at any training site at any time during the course!

The first day will be spent in the classroom in casual, comfortable attire. The rest of the class will be spent conducting scenario-based training. It is during this time that the student will need their personal operational clothing and equipment. Simunition® will provide dedicated converted pistols as well as their associated equipment. Simunition® will also provide basic protective mask and throat protection, all training ammunition as well as training aids such as training impact weapons and training OC.

Students should bring to the course all of their duty operational equipment which they would normally wear;  Eye protection; Duty-belt; Tac-lights; Appropriate footwear; Athletic and seasonal outdoor clothing; Long-sleeved BDUs; Full body covering (recommended); Protective gloves; Notebook and pen.
