Inquiries about Classes at the VTC (Romney, WV) 2017
I am getting constant inquiries about the schedule for the Velocity Training Schedule (VTC) in Romney, WV, mainly people asking where the Combat Team Tactics and Combat Patrol classes are. Some of this has come about since I populated the calendar with a number of MOBILE CLASSES for 2017.
The calendar has been put out up till June 2017. The CTT class that was in March was changed to a CQB Class, which is now full. Many of the classes already scheduled for 2017 are mobile classes in: Texas, Missouri, Idaho, Kentucky and Georgia.
With the exception of the Kentucky and Georgia classes, which I just posted for the end September / beginning October 2017, I have not put out the training schedule beyond May 2017. There will be classes, including CTT and CP, scheduled at the VTC during the latter part of 2017, June and onwards. They have just not been scheduled yet.
When the classes are posted, I suggest you book early. Classes will fill up. Also, if I don’t have solid names down for a class, just an intent on your part that you have not communicated to MVT with a solid booking, in the rare case that I bring a new class onto the schedule (i.e. CQB in March) I will see no impediment in replacing a scheduled class, just like happened with the CTT/CQB class in March. Since I made the change, a number of people have told me they had intended to come to that class. News to me, and CQB is now full.
Keep an eye on the blog/forum for the rest of the schedule to be posted, sometime early 2017.
P.S: in the meantime, there are a couple of things you can be working on, in preparation for class:
All MVT classes require a basic level of physical fitness. This includes cardiovascular fitness for the tactical ranges, and basic body/arm strength / endurance for tasks such as charging your rifle on repetitive weapons manipulations. The physical fitness standards are easily attainable and are not onerous. However, if you ignore the requirement, you will be reducing the value you gain from training, and being an impediment to your teammates. We do offer tactical fitness training plans, including advice on basic standards and how to test yourself HERE.
