Close Quarters Battle




This dynamic 5-day/40hr course of instruction has been developed to provide trainees with the core elements of competency to conduct platoon/troop level, dynamic structural close quarters battle through the use of Reality Based Training, Role Players and Non Lethal Training Ammunition. 

Training will include lectures and education on the application of dynamic CQB, safety policies, the priority of threat sequence, strongwall tactics, points of penetration, corner and center fed rooms, areas of responsibility and the employment of cross pan techniques. Practical lessons and exercises will include door procedures, entry procedures, movement procedures and communication as two and four man elements. During this instruction, trainees will be exposed to our proprietary Primary 10 CQB Room Combat Scenarios that form the fundamental framework of room combat tactics. 

Further lessons will include hallway movement procedures that will allow assault teams to move tactically and securely along coridors, negotiate intersections and clear stairwells. During this block of instruction trainees will be introduced to flow restrictions and control measures that establish platoon/troop level contraints and restraints during clearance. 

Training on the final day will be dedicated to emergency and deliberate action assaults where trainees will receive detailed lessons on EA and DA assault preparation and planning, assault phases, multi-point assaults, security requirements and post assault procedures and associated tactics that will provide the team with a tactical advantage.
