Our Diminished Environment course is designed with our everyday operating environment in mind. This course exposes shooters to various lighting conditions and the understanding of how to read lighting conditions and employ proper lighting techniques properly. Students will see and understand the importance of choosing the correct gear, and students' decision-making will be tested in various low light/no light conditions. Multiple shooting drills and scenarios will help students reduce their reaction time, enhance decision-making and accuracy, and overall confidence in their ability and weapon system in Diminished Environments.
