Room Clearing

Based on proven military and law enforcement Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs), this course is the first step to becoming equipped with the skills you need to clear, coordinate and effectively control a close quarter engagement.  In 8 hours, broken up over 4 nights, we focus on introducing tactical concepts and dynamic actions that can be applied to effectively search and negotiate rooms, hallways, stairwells and large open spaces; and to quickly dominate and secure the area.

The class will cover techniques on how to correctly move through doorways, enter and clear rooms, exit a room, move through a home or building, and use target discrimination – quickly identifying threats and applying the appropriate level of force.  Using the crawl, walk, run method of instruction you will learn the techniques step-by-step first as an individual and then as a team.  In the last night of the course, you will clear multiple structures with simulation firearms and paint marking rounds, while engaging in stressful and intensive force-on-force exercises.
