Covert Methods of Entry (CMoE) Training

Our Covert Methods of Entry (CMoE) Class (also known as Specialized Entry Training) is designed for everyone from a first-year patrol officer to a seasoned SWAT operator or undercover detective as well as all Military Special Forces/EOD personnel. Training is accomplished in two eight-hour days with a hands-on approach. Topics include picking door knobs and deadbolts, padlocks, fire safes, emergency vehicle entry techniques, multiple shimming techniques, and numerous lock bypass techniques. Preparation for entry is discussed to include both commercially made and field expedient tools, scouting and surveillance, legal issues, covert and surreptitious entry methods, and much more. Training is conducted by a police veteran with over two decades of experience who is also certified as a locksmith and is a patent owner, as well as a very qualified team of locksmiths with field experience in varying covert entry techniques. Each student will receive a free basic lock pick set upon successful completion of the class as well as 16 hours of AZ POST training credit.  Cost is $495 per student.
