H.E.A.T. 1 Combat Tactics
OPEN ENROLLMENT. NO TRAINING PREREQUISITE.
Hostile Environment Advanced Tactics (HEAT 1) is a four day class designed to teach you tactical marksmanship and team tactical skills from individual up to pairs and team level. This includes reaction to hostile threats and maneuver under hostile fire. This class is the basic building block of MVT tactical hostile environment training.
The class consists of two 2 Day sections:
- Days 1 & 2: Flat Range Portion: These two days are conducted on the flat range focusing on safety, zeroing, weapon manipulation, shooting skills fundamentals, hostile environment marksmanship (HEMS), individual react to contact drills and hostile environment marksmanship while both static and moving.
- Days 3 & 4: Tactical Range Portion: The class then progresses to two days on the tactical ranges building pairs and team tactical drills, utilizing reactive electronic pop-up targets and other training aids to replicate a real threat environment. The class focuses on team communication and maneuver in a live fire hostile environment, working on tactical maneuver: forward movement to reduce the threat, as well as ‘break contact’ maneuver away from the threat.
Cost of HEAT 1 (4 Day): $850.
Ammunition Information: we generally tell you to plan for 400 rounds per training day. In 2020, an individual recorded his round counts for two HEAT 1 classes. He averaged 850 rounds per class.
