Who is this for?

The Entry Team Concepts Course was developed for SWAT, Joint Task Force Teams, and Critical Entry Response who use team CQB for building entry, including HRT, High Risk Warrants, Active Shooter, and Vehicle Assaults.

Course Description

Five (5) Day

Students in our Entry Team Concepts Course will learn the building blocks for all weapons- from carbine, pistol and empty hand combat. Students will learn how to use these principles during suspect controls and team tactics while managing a carbine.

They will apply while shooting, practicing room clearing, and HRT scenarios. This is principle-based training meant to address trained/organized multiple-threats such as terrorist and domestic terrorist attacks for Homeland security. These techniques can be easily implemented in multi-agency, as well as joint task force operations.
