Throughout the years, the military has used dry-training to improve their soldiers shooting skills. Until now, affordable dry-fire training was limited in the market. Strikeman has finally made dry-fire training affordable and effective for all Americans.


Available on the Apple Store and Google Play store, our smartphone app records laser strikes from the Strikeman laser bullet on the Strikeman target, while giving you real time feedback of your shot accuracy. Check out the History section to see your shot accuracy improvements over time, your average shot score distribution, and other key metrics.

The Laser Institute of America offers a complete line of laser safety training courses for personnel in research, industrial, and medical laser facilities. Onsite training is also available by contacting the LIA Education Department. All of LIA's courses are based on the ANSI Z136 Series of Laser Safety Standards.

Any employee working with Class 3b or Class 4 lasers must complete the Laser Safety Awareness course. The course will cover fundamentals of laser operation, bioeffects of laser radiation on eyes and skin, laser system control measures, and non-beam hazards associated with laser operation.

VUMC staff who perform or assist with clinical procedures that use lasers are assigned the "VUMC Laser Safety in Clinical Settings" course online in the VUMC Learning Exchange. Staff may also self-assign this training in the Learning Exchange by searching for the course titled "Laser Safety in Clinical Settings."

VUMC healthcare providers who operate and use lasers during clinical procedures will be assigned the "Laser Safety in Clinical Settings for Providers" course in the Learning Exchange during the credentialing process.

VU or VUMC faculty, staff and students who use lasers in non-clinical settings, such as a teaching or research lab, can access this training in the University or Medical Center Learning Exchange. Search for the course titled "Laser Safety in the Research Lab" to self-assign this training.

Laser Safety provides guidance for individuals who work with high-power Class 3B and Class 4 lasers and laser systems that operate at wavelengths between 180 nm and 1 mm. You are not required to train if you are using lower class lasers or laser enclosed instruments (confocal microscopes, flow cytometers, etc) under normal use.

All online training is done through Canvas. Log in and visit your portal to review your required training courses. The quiz link will appear in Canvas when the training is complete. Be sure to complete the quiz after the training to get credit.

If you do not have a CWRU ID, you will not be able to access this training through Canvas. Please contact the Radiation Safety Office at 216.368.2906 and provide them with your email address. You will be sent a manual training and quiz in .pdf format.

Laser directionals are an easy way of sending the dog to a specific spot or object at a distance from the handler. It is far less time-consuming than training a dog to be guided with verbal directional cues over radio.

The laser directionals have several applications, especially for law enforcement and military use, and is today used in most countries. By most dog teams it is not used daily, but a very useful tool for specific situations that would be difficult or riskier without the laser. Below are some example of how it is used:

Must have a laser. We recommend the Firefield Laser Designator available at The dog needs to know to "sit" on cue. The dog also needs to have at least one reward signal trained. Up to a distance of 50m a clicker or verbal cue works fine, but at longer distances a "pipe whistle" is the most convenient alternative.

There are many different types of lasers. Some will hurt the eyes of humans and dogs and some are more safe. It makes sense to use a laser with less effect and a larger dot in training and a more powerful laser for operational work as it can also be used in broad daylight.

You need to decide what you want the dog to do when it reaches the laser dot and what cues you will use. If you dont have a specific reason to do it different our suggestion is that you train the dog to go to the laser dot and sit, waiting for the next cue.

The objective of the module is to increase the dogs expectation on the laser dot. Especially older dogs who have seen thousands of reflexes and lights and it has habituated them to their presence rather than making them interesting.

In this exercise we want the dog to associate the laser dot with finding something it likes. Even if the dog has a high motivation to play with toys, food or treats are more suitable rewards due to the relatively low arousal they create.

This course goes into a great deal of detail on how to train a scent detection dog to go to a laser dot and sit, waiting for an additional command to search (either for explosives, a human or contraband). The course does not teach the dog to indicate on explosives, or how to apprehend a suspect, or how to indicate on narcotics etc. Teaching a scent detection dog to search and indicate on odor is not covered in this course. That training will be covered in other courses.
