This is an optional class that takes place the evening before CRCD/CRM classes (usually Friday evening for weekend classes). It follows the Combat Lifesaver (TC3)/Rifle Manipulation Primer (RMP) classes that take place that day, but is a standalone class.
Class start time is 2000 hrs (8pm).
Note: this class is designed for you to bring your own equipment.
Background Reading: Considerations for Night Operations
NIGHT OPTICAL DEVICE FIRING
NODF is designed to introduce students to their night vision, weapon and aiming devices. Students will learn how to integrate different systems to allow them to effectively use their weapon at night. Students will also be shown combat proven TTPs for night time operations. Students will get the most out of this class if they come with quality night vision, a reliable weapon and some form of infrared aiming laser. If you are unsure of your gear please email MVT.

To Freaken Cool!
What a great addition to what MVT already has to offer. If you already made the trip to be there, and you have NVG’s – GO FOR IT!

Max and I are very excited for this new course. It’s going to give students a great opportunity that’s hard to come by in the civilian world. It’ll also be a lot of fun. There’s more to come keep watching the website.
