This 5-Day/50hr course provides students with advanced training in the integration of CBRN SOPs and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) with the tactics, techniques and procedures of deliberate close quarters battle. By the end of this course, students will be able to apply clearance techniques to enhance operator survivability and mitigate risk to the assault element when conducting close quarters battle operations in CBRN environments.

During this course, we will teach students how to set up PPE for assault operations and understand what each assaulter must carry and where to carry it. This course will provide opportunities to develop SOPs for carrying emergency canisters, atropine auto injectors, Reactive Skin Decontamination Lotion (RSDL), and carriage and employment of the Compact Emergency Escape Hood.

Students will learn how to don CBRN assault equipment, conduct individual equipment checks and how to use the buddy system to suit up prior to conducting an assault. We will teach team leaders how to conduct team leader checks to ensure all personnel are ready for an assault.

Training will include SOPs to cover various contingencies that may arise when conducting enter and clear operations in contaminated environments. Instruction will include actions on procedures for encountering Chemical Warfare Agents and blood agents, when and how to conduct an emergency canister change, consolidation drills and what to do if you discover a tear or hole in your barrier suit or hole in your PAPR hose during clearance, and what to do when encountering hostages or unknowns.

At the command level, training will include procedures to monitor the assault force and establish assault duration and time on target when clearing in contaminated environments.

Students will receive training in current tactics and CBRN SOPs of deliberate clearance, enabling assault teams to maximize distance and angles, increase survivability and mitigate undue risk during clearance. We will educate students in deliberate clearance SOPs, CQB safety, priority of threeat, door and room types, points of penetration, and C2 verbiage. We will teach students how to set up at the door, conduct single and dual side pans of the doorway, mitigate the fatal funnel, move to entry positions within the room, neutralize threats, communicate and conduct movement procedures to clear dead spaces. Trainees will learn to employ barricaded flow techniques to clear hallways, intersections and stairwells. Students will employ night vision goggles and infrared aiming lasers throughout this course of instruction.

This course includes reality-based training scenarios and live target engagements using non-lethal training ammunition. The scenarios reinforce teaching points, enable trainees to employ Rules Of Engagement/Use Of Force and validate the tactics.

We can conduct our CQB programs at client-specified training facilities using our mobile training teams or at suitable training facilities around the country.
