This 3-Day/ 32hr intermediate level course of instruction has been developed to train and qualify attendees in the application, employment and integration of image intensified Visual Augmentation Systems including Night Vision Goggles and both visible and infra red aiming laser and illuminator during tactical operations including urban combat shooting and close quarters battle training.
During this course of instruction, attendees will participate in three blocks of instructor lead training and practical exercises. The initial block commences during the day with zeroing combat optics and visible lasers and focuses on live fire combat shooting at intermediate distances of 50 -200 yards. Students will be taught dynamic movement and engagement techniques using various shooting positions including prone, kneeling and standing, urban shooting techniques using barriers and shoulder transitions and advanced stoppage assessments and clearances while negotiating their night vision goggles. This daytime terminal learning objective will consist of a dynamic shooting assessment that incorporates many of the technques learnt throughout the day. Training will continue into the evening were attendees will replicate daytime curriculum using both active and passive targeting methods that have been designed to introduce concepts for successful near peer engagements. Trainees will participate in practical exercises that will test night fighting equipment and the end users ability to determine positive threat identification. These exercises are crutial to ensure attendees are aware of the effectiveness and limitations of their night fighting equipment and be able to make good decisions under stress in order to manage liability. This block will conclude with practical exercises to develop SOP/s for target approach and advance to contact tactics and procedures.
The second block on day two will focus heavily on close quarters combat engagements where students will learn best practices in safe weapons handling procedures and engagement techniques while using their night fighting equipment. Attendees will participate in validation assessments that have been designed as enabling objectives to evaluate the students ability to quickly and decisively engaged targets in reduced light and no light. Training will include presentations, correct scanning and assessing, rifle to pistol tranisitions, application of white light and infra red pistol engagements, advanced turning procedures, stoppage clearances, shooting while moving, assaulter bail out drills. Terminal testing will be conducting during the day and night with the Redback One Close Quarters Combat Shooting Validation.
Day three will commence with lessons on deliberate close quarters battle tactics. Attendees will learn leading edge techniques and procedures in the integration of night fighting equipment with deliberate close quarters battle. The block will consist of instructor lead training in two man room combat tactics, techniques and procedures including, points of penetration, corner and center fed rooms, priority of threat, cross pan and sectoring as well as SOP development for hard and soft targets. Attendees will be given instruction in door and entry procedures, movement procedures and room combat problem solving.
Student's attending this course will receive valuable life saving training that has been designed to develop situation awareness, enhance survivability, increase individual skills and targeting. This course will improve the overall night fighting capability of the team and increase individual capability to operate and fight at night in a close quarters combat environment.
