New Classes Scheduled: Long Range (LRMS) & CQBC
We have just added two classes to the existing schedule for the latter part of 2018:
Long Range Marksmanship (LRMS): 11 – 12 August.
HEAT Close Quarter Battle (CQB): 14 – 16 September.
The links above take you to the class description page. To book the class, look top right on the class page and find the dates; click through the the event booking page.
Note that CQB utilizes UTM ammunition and thus there is an early bird discount. Prices increase 90 days out from the class, in this case 24 June. Book now to get the spot and pay less! The CQBC class on 22 – 24 June is full with a waiting list
Live fire classes feature a 60 day early bird discount, UTM classes 90 days.

The September CQB class has replaced the HEAT Force on Force scheduled for that weekend. This means that at this time we have no HEAT FOF for 2018. We do have a private FOF class booked by a company for team members and clients, which is certainly an idea you could leverage: a teamwork, leadership and bonding weekend. At this time, we are primarily reserving the use of UTM ammunition for CQB and the Combat Leader Class. This is despite my observation that FOF is an excellent training event. If I get overwhelming feedback on FOF, I may reschedule, but I need to be fairly sure of getting the basic number of 18 students for the class. It requires a large order of UTM ammunition, more than 2 months out from the class date, which is a significant expenditure.
You can click on the calendar link above to surf class dates, and a summary is below:
22 – 24 June: Close Quarter Battle Course (CQBC): Currently FULL. This is a state of the art CQB course teaching current TTPs in use by SOF. This is open enrollment but we expect you to show up with a decent level of competence in basic weapon manipulation.
14 – 15 July: Defensive Concealed Handgun (DCH).
4 – 5 August: Alumni Live Fire: Huge value at $300) for the weekend. Designed or alumni to catch up and revise, roll into multiple live fire scenarios.
11 – 12 August: Long Range Marksmanship (LRMS): Just posted, available.
23 – 26 August: HEAT 1: Space available. This is the previous Combat Team Tactics Class which is 4 days.* This is essentially the gateway class to the excellent world of MVT small unit tactics classes. You will amaze yourself at what you learn.
*Note: I am making some allowances for previous experience for booking onto 3 days of the HEAT 1 Class, for new bookings, for returning recent alumni or those who have a significant level of training / weapon manipulation competence from elsewhere. This will be posted on an update to the page HERE. Bottom line, if you think you can miss the first day of the class, email me.
15- 16 September: Close Quarter Battle Course (CQBC): Just posted, available. This is a state of the art CQB course teaching current TTPs in use by SOF. This is open enrollment but we expect you to show up with a decent level of competence in basic weapon manipulation.
14 – 21 October: HEAT Team Leader. This is our excellent annual combat leader class. This is also your best chance for some excellent UTM Force on Force training in a constructive combat-simulated environment.
1 – 4 Nov: HEAT 2: This excellent training event supersedes the previous Combat Patrol class. HEAT 1 / CTT alumni only.
