RAIDER Training

Law Enforcement Officers Face Unique Challenges

The RAIDER Training program exposes first-on-scene responders to the tactical skills necessary to operate successfully in the unique tensions of an active shooter setting – a hostile environment, populated by large numbers of civilians, with an Active Killer attempting to achieve the highest body count possible in the shortest amount of time. This is not a normal event, nor is the response.

Our courses are organized in Three Levels.  Each Level is designed to be run either as a standalone course or run consecutively to achieve the 5 day Instructor Level Course.

2 Day 

RAIDER Training Level 2 – Operator Course (Live Fire Range)

Solo Officer Engagement Tactics

There will always be a first officer on the scene. If he or she waits for more officers – as is the protocol in many units – who are we portraying needs help more? The officer or the victims under attack? Solo engagement training is designed to provide officers with the necessary mental and physical skills to draw the attention of the active shooter away from the potential victims, confuse and frustrate the shooter, and successfully neutralize the situation.

Host a RAIDER Training class at your Facility

By hosting the RAIDER Training Program, your agency can participate as a leader in the professional development of law enforcement personnel from your agency and other area agencies. Receiving participants from your local and larger geographic area gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your agency’s commitment to professional training and to showcase your agency to others.


Thousands of officers trained. Let’s see what some have to say!

I just completed the ALICE RAIDER Instructor class in Middlefield, OH. The instructors explained that we would have access to materials for our training purposes. How do I access that information? Also, as I practice the fundamentals I learned and apply them to different buildings, environments and situations, what would be the best way for me to pose questions? Is there a recommended POC?

Training was extremely beneficial! I have been fortunate to have attended many classes, several of which were by “Tier One” operators. The level of instruction was on par with them…..more importantly….. The two things that placed this RAIDER class above others: 1) The “why” was explained, demonstrated and practiced. 2) We were afforded the opportunity of several repetitions.

One final note……when Greg spoke, he used the perfect terms and only those that were necessary to achieve understanding. Not an instant was wasted. I appreciate you all making max use of our time and efforts.

Just wanted to drop a line regarding my experience at RAIDER Training in Maynard, MA.

I’ve been a proactive Patrolman and SWAT Operator for the past 4 years and have been involved in many types of trainings. Both tactical and educational. The style and approach in which Gary Kamp and Curtis trained us was top notch. I learned more in the five day instructors course regarding tactics, movements, and shooting than I have in any other tactical training. They genuinely care about their students and it comes out in their training.

I have already recommended this training to the rest of our SWAT Team and any other officer looking for the best Active Shooter training available.

Patrolman/SWAT Brett Calhoun
After our department adopted ALICE training, we were looking for a program to give to our patrol to better their chances if they have to respond to an active killer incident. We found it, RAIDER! The program is as real world as it gets. The train the trainer was one of the best I have been to for the boots on the ground patrol officer firearms training. The trainers and the company are world class and far ahead of the others in active killer training and information. Myself and another officer traveled to Iowa for the training and it has been the most beneficial active killer training we have attended. The knowledge and experience passed on to the class was above all other similar training curriculum I have seen and experienced. I would say that if you want to provide your department with real world, relevant and scenario based training…get yourself to ATI’s RAIDER training. They are on the next level of training in this evolving world of law enforcement.

After my shooting, I contacted my RAIDER Trainers to let him know that what they taught absolutely kicked in that day, and to express my deepest and most sincere thanks for their training. The Trainers contacted me weekly to check in and show support while I was out of work during the investigation and we still keep in contact years later. I have attended multiple ALICE and RAIDER programs since and teach their methods to my department. Much thanks to Greg and his crew of professionals for their guidance and dedication to excellence.

We applied a lot of the principles from the RAIDER course to all of our firearms training. On Saturday we had an Officer Involved Shooting. A guy armed with an AR15 and several hundred rounds went off the deep end and decided to shoot it out with guys on my shift. The best compliment I have ever received I got almost immediately after confirming the bad guy was no longer. My guy looked at me and said “thank you for all the training you have given us, it saved my life”. Just wanted you to know.
