Domestic Defense Course


 The CORE Domestic Defense Course (CDDC) is designed to enhance and refine the Operators ability to decide when to use force during defense of home, property or loved ones and is crucial to force protection and reduction of collateral damage. We have included multiple force on force situational training Exercises that allow the operators a non-lethal low risk learning opportunity. The scenarios require the Operator to read their environment and choose to either walk away or escalate from combatives techniques to lethal force. All of the CDDC Tactical Training Protocols have been refined during force on force live fire exercises and are designed to minimize risk to the operator


PREREQUISITES: All students attending CDDC must have basic weapons handling skills, able to safely load and unload a weapon, and put it into operation effectively. Students who lack basic marksmanship skills are recommended to attend a CPB and CAP Course to insure their skills are adequate for CDDC. This is not a basic course; the drills conducted in this course are advanced and require a great deal of tactical competence.
