    Course Description:

    If you’ve taken our Defesive Rifle Level 1 (AR) course, you qualify for this level 2 course. Ready for a fast paced day to take your skills to the next level?

    Research and our own experience in our Force-on-Force classes show one of the most common injuries in a fight are injuries to the hands. If you take one of your hands out of the fight, can you still properly operate your weapon?

    In addition, this course will combine Moving & Shooting skills, where you will learn how to effectively shoot while moving.

    Standing still in a gunfight will get you killed. You are either pressing the attack, retreating, moving toward cover, or moving toward an objective. Being able to manipulate your weapon one handed, weak handed, and while moving are vital to your success. This course will make extensive use of footwork, weapon control, and shot placement while on the move.

    About This Course:

    The shotgun is one of the most misunderstood weapon systems, but also one of the most versatile. While many people have used a shotgun to hunt, or to shoot cans, proper utilization in a defensive situation is much different. Ammunition selection, how to change ammunition mid fight, strengths and limitations, extra shell placement, are all things that must be considered to get the most out of the weapon. We will cover various techniques for deploying the shotgun in different scenarios to allow the operator to get the most out of this tool. If you are considering having a shotgun as part of your home defense plan, or you are a patrol officer who wants to get better at its utilization, this is a vital course for you. Regardless of how many rounds you have fired at your local range or while hunting, you will learn how to use your shotgun in real world situations.

    Equipment Required:

    • Tactical shotgun, pump or automatic, gauge does not matter

    • Method to carry extra shells (Side saddle preferred… stock saddle, sling strap, belt pouch, etc are all fine).

    • 75 rounds of number 7 or 8 birdshot

    • 5 rounds of 00 buckshot

    • 5 rounds of slugs.

    • Ear and Eye protection

    About This Course:

    We want to think our church is a place of refuge where we can safely grow a relationship with our God, family, and fellow congregation. Unfortunately, churches are quickly becoming one of the most targeted places for violence.

    Many churches have started safety or security teams, but they often lack the ability to give proper training and guidance to the team members. In too many instances the church board simply finds the person in the congregation who happens to be a police officer, tags them to develop a security plan, and then opens it up to volunteers. While this is certainly better than having nothing in place, this approach can leave many holes in a fully comprehensive security plan.

    Getting a full team together to offer training has issues. People have complicated schedules. Training facilities are limited. Training courses may offer some of the base skills, but they are not tailored to the church environment.

    While we offer full advisement, planning, and training packages to churches, we found many other instances where individual safety team members understand it is “up to them” to get the training required. This course will help individuals who have been tasked to serve their church in a security or safety team role to be better prepared. In addition, several topics will be discussed they can take back to their organizations to help implement a more comprehensive plan.

    Topics Covered:

    Situational Awareness before, during, and after the service

    De-escalation techniques for church environments

    Firearms and other weapons considerations

    Safeguarding the offering and financial contributions

    Protecting the children

    Medical issues, fires, weather events, and other safety emergencies

    Legal liability

    Equipment Required:

    Notepad and Pen

    Prerequisites:

    None

    Notes:

    This course is primarily aimed at individual safety team members but will help guide the basis for an overall church plan.

    This is a fast paced course with many topics covered

    About this course:

    In today’s American society things are rather peaceful and organized. Rule of law is easily maintained due to the systems that are in place. There is a smooth supply of resources and enough for everyone. There are police officers patrolling the streets every minute of the day. There is a large cellular and Wi-Fi network nationwide that keeps everyone connected instantaneously. Because of these systems our society is rather pleasant and easy to live in.

    But, what happens if there is an event that disrupts these systems? If the resources no longer move, police become outnumbered and ineffective, and communications is no longer simple and effortless? How do you maintain the security of your loved ones in a society much more volatile and unfamiliar than the one we currently have? If these things happen, our society becomes the opposite of peaceful and organized. Criminals will be much freer to do as they please without fear of police interception. Even supposedly “good” people may become dangerous due to simply wanting to provide for their family. If these things were to happen, the world as we know it will become far more dangerous to a point that it’s almost difficult to imagine.

    However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope to make it through it! The people that plan and train for that ahead of time will have a much higher probability of survival for themselves and those around them. A person’s ability to unite those around them for a common goal and fight as a team with those people in a tactical environment against a common enemy will be paramount for security of them and those they love. That is the only way to survive a scenario described above; unite and survive together using sound tactics. That is what the class Guerilla Marksman is about!

    This class teaches students the basis for uniting a small element of people, preparing equipment, and using tactics commonly used by guerilla fighters throughout history. There is a heavy emphasis on rifle marksmanship because that has always been what makes guerilla fighters the most effective; they are accurate with their weapons and able to cause maximum damage with minimum ammunition and resources. All of this is done while remaining in the field, including overnight.

    Training Plan:

    Training will begin at the meeting location with discussion and equipment preparation. Don’t feel your equipment is fully ready? Don’t sweat it! At the start of class you will get to see what well configured support gear looks like, and have time to reconfigure yours as needed.

    Students will be structured into a few tactical elements with leadership using a “Chain of Command”. The entire class will be conducted as teams and leadership positions will rotate. Come prepared to operate as a team with people you have not met.  

    Your weapon not zeroed? Don’t sweat it! You will have time to zero and configure your weapon as needed. There will be an emphasis on individual rifle marksmanship and several firing drills that you will conduct.

    All vehicles will be left at the meeting location for the duration of training and you will be staying in the field overnight. Any range gear that you cannot carry on-person will be transported to the firing point for you. Any gear you need for the night, MUST be carried on-person for the duration of class. Access to vehicles will be possible, but highly discouraged to maximize training value.

    Course Description:

    If you’ve taken our Defesive Rifle Level 1 (AR) course, you qualify for this level 2 course. Ready for a fast paced day to take your skills to the next level?

    Research and our own experience in our Force-on-Force classes show one of the most common injuries in a fight are injuries to the hands. If you take one of your hands out of the fight, can you still properly operate your weapon?

    This course will take the skills you learned about operating your weapon, reloading, and clearing malfunctions, and force you to do all these things with one hand out of play. In addition, we will work on shooting from compromised positions.

    In addition, this course will combine Moving & Shooting skills, where you will learn how to effectively shoot while moving.

    Standing still in a gunfight will get you killed. You are either pressing the attack, retreating, moving toward cover, or moving toward an objective. Being able to manipulate your weapon one handed, weak handed, and while moving are vital to your success. This course will make extensive use of footwork, weapon control, and shot placement while on the move.

    Equipment Required:

    • AR Style Rifle

    • Sling (Single, Two, or Three Point is fine)

    • 3 Magazines

    • Magazine carry method

    • Approximately 350 rounds of ammunition

    • Eye and Ear protection

    Prerequisites:

    Defensive Rifle Level 1 (AR)

    If you have attended an AR rifle course at another facility where you are familiar with all operations and clearing all malfunctions you will be accepted.

    Notes:

    Open to ages 14 and over when attending with a parent.

    About This Course:

    This course is part 2 of the Sidney Reilly Experience.  You do NOT have to have attended part 1 prior (this is a standalone course)

    Situational Awareness will only get you so far. How do you know if someone is following you, or has identified you as a target for their criminal activity? Criminals will often employ surveillance to determine if you are someone they want to attack, and if so, when you are at your most vulnerable. Knowing how to detect and evade surveillance could be the key to avoiding becoming a victim

    In order to properly avoid surveillance, you need to know how to conduct surveillance. This course will also cover the proper techniques in vehicles and on foot.

    This course directly relates to our counter-kidnapping course and is a required prerequisite.

    This course is extremely helpful for anyone planning on travelling, or for anyone who has reason to believe they may be targeted domestically.

    This course will cover the following topics:

    • Surveillance Terminology
    • Surveillance Types and Examples
    • Pre-Planning and the Initial Surveillance Phase
    • Counter Surveillance Tactics and Considerations
    • Surveillance Detection Routes
    • Surveillance Detection Points
    • Vehicle Demeanors and Vulnerabilities
    • Foot Demeanors and Vulnerabilities

    While this series is labeled as a "Spy" series, the lessons taught are directly applicable for all people in their daily life.

    • Reduce the potential for criminal activity against yourself and/or your family
    • Enhance your knowledge and capabilities for detecting and reacting to surveillance activities
    • Enhance self-confidence by sensitizing you to skills and procedures to uncover surveillance and warn of targeting activity.

    Due to the nature of this course all individuals will be subject to a criminal background check.

    Additional Courses in this Series Include:

    • Behavioral Analysis and Anomaly Detection (SRE-1)
    • Close Range Improvised and Traditional Weapons (SRE-3)
    • Kidnaping Prevention and Escape (SRE-4)

    About this Course:

    Sometimes you just need to get into a door quickly and don’t have time to find the keys or pick the lock. Perhaps there is a medical emergency, fire, or violent situation. Knowing how to get inside the door with speed and safety is paramount to you being able to address the situation on the other side.

    This course will show numerous techniques and tools to utilize for the purpose. Students will open doors, windows, and gates. The course is applicable to law enforcement, fire, ems, and civilians.

    About This Course:

    Whether entering a room for a search, securing a room in your house, rescuing a hostage, or engaging an active shooter, the most dangerous risk involves the initial room entry. Entering a room where an unknown assailant is inside puts the good guy at a significant disadvantage in the event of an attack.

    While CQB and Fighting In Structures has a module on the techniques, true professionals will spend days focusing on this very specific portion of CQB. Once dynamic entry is better understood, the overall CQB techniques will flow much more smoothly.

    For those who have taken the Tactical Breaching course, this course will address what to do once the door is open.

    Tactical Breaching, Dynamic Entry, and CQB flows together to create a much better appreciation for the overall risks and methods of mitigating danger during a fighting in structure scenario.

    This course is equally applicable for law enforcement who may be entering a domestic disturbance, a civilian doing home invasion response, or anyone dealing with an active shooter situation.

    Topics Include:

    Foundation of Dynamic Entry

    Proper Speed of Dynamic Entry

    Fatal Funnels, Button Hooks, Driving Corners, and other vital techniques

    Human Factors related to Visual and Auditory Processing

    Shoot-No-Shoot Decisions and Dealing with Innocent Occupants

    Low Light Scenarios

    Equipment Required:

    Airsoft Equipment will be provided if you do not have your own

    Prerequisites:

    None, although Tactical Breaching and Fighting in Structures will help you better understand the full flow

    About This Course:

    We want to think our church is a place of refuge where we can safely grow a relationship with our God, family, and fellow congregation. Unfortunately, churches are quickly becoming one of the most targeted places for violence.

    Many churches have started safety or security teams, but they often lack the ability to give proper training and guidance to the team members. In too many instances the church board simply finds the person in the congregation who happens to be a police officer, tags them to develop a security plan, and then opens it up to volunteers. While this is certainly better than having nothing in place, this approach can leave many holes in a fully comprehensive security plan.

    Getting a full team together to offer training has issues. People have complicated schedules. Training facilities are limited. Training courses may offer some of the base skills, but they are not tailored to the church environment.

    While we offer full advisement, planning, and training packages to churches, we found many other instances where individual safety team members understand it is “up to them” to get the training required. This course will help individuals who have been tasked to serve their church in a security or safety team role to be better prepared. In addition, several topics will be discussed they can take back to their organizations to help implement a more comprehensive plan.

    Topics Covered:

    Situational Awareness before, during, and after the service

    De-escalation techniques for church environments

    Firearms and other weapons considerations

    Safeguarding the offering and financial contributions

    Protecting the children

    Medical issues, fires, weather events, and other safety emergencies

    Legal liability

    Equipment Required:

    Notepad and Pen

    Prerequisites:

    None

    Notes:

    This course is primarily aimed at individual safety team members but will help guide the basis for an overall church plan.

    This is a fast paced course with many topics covered

    Follow-on training is available to go deeper into each topic

    About This Course:

    Tracking with a K9 in an urban environment creates complex problems for the dog, handler, and support personnel.  Changes from hard surfaces to grass to loose surfaces is common.  Traffic can create additional changes in scent flow.  The incident of other human scent contamination crossing the track is highly common.  Obstacles that have to be worked over and around are constant.

    Urban areas are prevalent even for teams which typically patrol more rural areas.  Housing developments, roads, driveways, parks, small towns all demand the skills a solid urban tracking team possess.  Unfortunately many teams only practice in grassy parks, wooded areas, or along roads with very little traffic.

    This course will build a strong understanding of urban scent tracking, and will train the team for solid skills to be successful in even the most challenging of urban environments.

    This course is applicable to both Law Enforcement and Search & Rescue teams

    Equipment:

    Working teams should come prepared for 4 days of work across a variety of urban terrain

    All deployment equipment for both the K9 and handler

    Individuals auditing the course or those attending as support team members should come prepared to walk long distances on both hard and soft terrain.

    Instructor:

    Mike Lilley

    Price:

    $400 working team (1 K9 and 1 Handler)

    $200 audit / observe / support

    About This Course:

    This course is a 3 day ADVANCED FORCE ON FORCE class about self-evaluation, objective re-calibration and achieving actionable competence. Charting out individualized, accurate, relevant and objective matrix of ones competence within the realm of a violent encounter with firearms takes methodical approach, which provides one with clear picture of hierarchical order of learning and training priorities.

    Forward Training Concepts “Violence Uncensored-1” class is a 3 day, 22 hour force-on-force course, designed to facilitate acquisition and fine tuning of necessary attributes through interactive environment of a 2 way force on force training.

    Utilizing the concept of evolution of competence from developing attributes, learning skills, developing skill sets and all that transforming into actionable competence, this course takes the path of first defining where each student stands as a shooter AND as a fighter with the gun.

    Through thoughtfully designed drills, each student will be able to diagnose individual issues and problem areas. Drills gradually and progressively will take students from understanding and developing baseline attributes, to a much more complex and chaotic realm of a gunfight. Attributes and components of the distinct stages of actions within the gunfight will be introduced in order to not only evaluate and diagnose, but to expose and eliminate dogmatic habits that impede ones ability to function with efficiency and robustness in a fight. In three intense days of learning and training, each student will be able to gather enough raw data and relevant results to be able to quantify his/her own competence.

    Topics Covered:

    Day 1 (8 hours)

    • Workspace, distance, angulation in a 2 way close quarters gunfight.
    • Access under pressure in extreme close quarters. Crafting a perfect recipe with available ingredients- space, time, angle, workspace, movement, displacement.
