In 2019, MVT is running a 6 day training package Sunday 17 – Friday 22 February 2019.
The training theme for the class is ‘Rhodesia.’ This is a hybrid class that does not confirm specifically to the MVT standard training curriculum. This general class theme and curriculum was a huge success in 2018.
There is now a limit of 16 spaces for the class. At time of writing, we are at 16 bookings after increasing class size from 12 to 16.
Classes take place on a large private ranch close to Brady, Texas. The ranch offers excellent training land. There is a comfortable hunting lodge at the ranch which is the main accommodation option of choice. This will be the fifth year in a row that we have run classes at this ranch. It is an excellent training venue.
There is a $40 per night cost to stay in the Hunting Lodge on the ranch (optional) . There is a $20 per day range fee, in addition to the tuition fees listed below. These fees are paid to the ranch on site, not to MVT.
The specific training program is subject to change / evolution.
Day 1: Flat Range: this is is a skills / revision day focusing on individual and team TTPs directly applicable to the rest of the training package.
Day 2: Assault Day: team assault drills.
Day 3: Immediate action drills.
Day 4: Ambush.
Day 5: Attack Day: Hasty Attack / Raid.
Day 6: Force on Force***
*** Note: This will now be an AirSim event. See below.

The classes are designed for MVT Alumni. The initial day on the flat range is designed to bring alumni up to speed, who may have missed a year or two of training and the ongoing development of MVT TTPs.
