Tactical Training Classes

Max Velocity Tactical classes specialize in the teaching of combat proven, adapted, legitimate light infantry tactics, techniques and procedures. Training is informed by a background and experience in SOF / elite forces, and additionally by close protection / paramilitary contracting work. These classes are the real deal, and the tactics, techniques and procedures are familiar to any graduate of Ranger School or SFQC. Tactical classes are not simply a regurgitation of basic military manuals or training, but are adapted to the students whether civilian, military, or contractor, based on real world operational experience in hostile / combat environments.

This is a hybrid advanced class that does not conform specifically to the MVT standard training curriculum. This general class theme and curriculum was a huge success for the alumni taking part. This class should be viewed as an annual training event where students travel from as far away as Colorado, Connecticut, Virginia, Kentucky etc.
