If you have been paying attention to the blog, you will have spotted that I did two things:
I am resisting the temptation to make RS/CTT simply a 4 day CTT class. It would be great from the student’s training perspective, but I will lose enrollment from those who cannot afford the extra day off work. It also allows alumni to choose to not show up for RS, if they think they don’t need the training.
If you view RS / CTT as an annual training event, then it is not such a stretch to make it for the 4 days. If you have already done a CTT, it is not an issue to return for just the 3 day CTT portion. So it makes sense like that.
I am going to make the following changes though, in order to reduce the repetition from the RS day to Day 1 of CTT (both square range days):
If you wish to take the content of Rifle Skills and Day 1 of CTT without proceeding straight to the tactical ranges, then I suggest signing up for one of the weekend Combat Rifle Skills (CRS) classes. This is an ideal way to introduce someone to training without them stressing about two more days on the tactical ranges. The training schedule will shortly be updated with forthcoming CRS classes beyond this weekend.
