    Check with the Federal Law Enfocement Training Center (FLETC). They are always hosting courses and the best thing is, the courses are free.

        DARC (darcy) in LittleRock, Ar is hardcore. It's run by John Hickman. It's a private training ground and fairly expensive, but it's worth it. Make sure you are in top shape before you go. 16 - 18 hour days are the norm.

        NWLTA in Bossier City, La is good. It's run by the Bossier Parrish SO and they offer basic and advanced SWAT a couple of times a year. The classes are usually free and they're very professional. The instructors train with different agencies all over the country and they really know their sh**.

        The FBI puts on SWAT courses in different areas every once in a while. The one I went to was in Ft. Smith a couple of years ago. They had several qualified instructors, class was free. You might call your local FBI office and ask them when the next one is.

            Check the Midwest Counter Drug Center in Johnston, Iowa (Des Moines).

            Just had some guys from one of my prior Sheriff's Dept. go up there and they said the training was great....

              Check out LEAD Consultants at www.leadconsultants.org. They are all active duty LAPD SWAT Officers with a tremendous amount of experience. They also offer other various swat related classes and I can vouch that they are some of the best classes out there. If you have any other questions about them please feel free to respond or PM me.

                I went through Baltimore County...It was good. They played mind games like every other school, but when it was time to train you trained, you paid for your mistakes LATER not while training. It cost 50 dollars, its hard though. Started with 31 graduated 14. Delaware State Police send their guys through Baltimore County also, so I know they take out of state.

                Alot of agencies host them, here in Maryland I know Howard County, Prince George's County, Calvert County, Baltimore County all host schools.

                    If this is for departmental training vs individual training contact Columbus Ohio PD SWAT. They used to training for other departments and I believe they still do. They were part of a group in our area that trained with Midwest Tactical Institute and they have refined the training from there. They're very good.
