Deliberate Close Quarters Battle




This 3-Day/24hr course has been developed to provide military and law enforcement personnel with the latest tactics, techniques and procedures to conduct slow and deliberate close quarters battle at the team level. Trainees will learn how to conduct door and entry procedures as well as room clearance sequence and priorities of threat. Trainees will learn how to correctly use deliberate clearance techniques to conduct threshold evaluations as well as multiple procedures to maximize officer safety during high-risk entries. Trainees will learn how to safely use barricaded movement procedures and communication techniques to move safely and tactically through a structure during high-risk situations. Trainees will participate in reality-based training scenarios that have been developed to reinforce teaching points and allow trainees to validate the tactics with the use of non-lethal training ammunition and force on force training. 

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.
