The Practical Applied Stress Training (P.A.S.T) program is designed to allow tactical teams to incorporate job applicable ‘functional’ training into their existing programs to take their general physical preparedness (GPP) to the next level. P.A.S.T bridges the essential gap between physical training and firearms training, allowing the SWAT operator to be better prepared for the demands of the job:
“Our team was looking for ideas on increasing the intensity of our range and force-on-force training sessions when I found Will’s program - Practical Applied Stress Training Principles.
Obviously, preparing tactical personnel for the types of anaerobic and aerobic stress that can occur in high stress incidents requires training that realistically imitates operational work.
I highly recommend the P.A.S.T. program for any team who is ready to take their training to a higher level.”
- Lt. Randy Hudspeth
What you get in the P.A.S.T Program
The program includes a manual that covers the program from start to finish. It supplies basic to advanced instruction, using one and two operator examples, or full team stages. The manual covers how to build effective stress training for those teams with little to no budget, to a program using highly effective recommended training tools.
The P.A.S.T program is designed to be integrated with the existing firearms programs used by trainers and departments, and modulated for those in great condition to those who need to be in great condition…The program can be used by teams at all levels of firearms proficiency and physical conditioning.
The program also includes a private members area which includes videos of the training, as well as forums where members can get additional advice, talk about their experiences, offer helpful suggestions to others, and speak with qualified advisors how best to optimize the P.A.S.T Program to their team.
What P.A.S.T is not; The P.A.S.T Program is not a firearms instructional program or a program that deals with tactics. Although some firearms related materials and resources are provided, it’s not a firearms program in the classic sense. It’s specifically designed to be combined with the firearms doctrine of experienced trainers and departments to greatly augment their tactical teams operational readiness and ability to perform under high levels of stress.
PS, if you have additional questions, feel free to contact me, post to the forums, etc. The article “Improving the Physical Preparedness and Operational longevity of the SWAT Operator” found on the OptimalSWAT site will also help the reader get an idea of the basics and value of the P.A.S.T Program.
Will Brink has created this six part series of videos to cover the essential issues that apply to all first responders, with an emphasis on tactical LE/ tactical community.
