Close Quarters Battle

Advanced Deliberate Close Quarters Battle




This 5-day/40hr course of instruction is designed to provide military and law enforcement tactical teams with a capability to conduct slow and deliberate clearance while integrating night vision goggles and IR lasers. The TTP/s taught during this program have been developed to integrate seemlessly with our basic CQB TTP.

This course will cover two and four-man door and entry procedures as well as full team entries, entry options for corner and center fed rooms as well as advanced dynamic entry procedures and room combat procedures. Students will be taught how to use deliberate clearacnce to safely reduce the size of a structure effectively using stealth to maximize personnel and coverage. Students will receive advanced training that will cover the appropiate use of flash bang grenades and CS gas employment for deliberate clearance as well as integrating their night fighting equipment including night vision goggles and IR lasers to reduce risk and increase mission success.

Our CQB programs can be conducted at client-specified training facility utilizing our Mobile Training Teams or held at our law enforcement training facilities located in Virginia. Courses can be modified to meet training facility requirements and delivered in either live fire or with the use of non-lethal training ammunition.
