Vehicle Counter Ambush and Maneuvers Course (CLEET Certified # 23-3456)

May 20 - May 22


CLEET Certified # 23-3456

Tactical Options Vehicle Counter Ambush and Maneuvers Course is a 30-hour program designed to advance the student on critical skills requiring extreme violence in order to stop unsuspecting ambush-type street threats. LEOs and civilians throughout the USA are increasingly becoming exposed to unexpected threats whose only intention is to kill LEOs or cause public atrocities. Through the program, students will be exposed to actions and skill sets required to achieve success if faced with deadly street threats. Students will learn effective practices on how to be prepared to respond to unsuspecting/unanticipated threats in aggressive and accountable means to ensure survivability.

Students will go through progressive and safe building stages that will increase knowledge and skills in their everyday readiness. With their weapons platforms, students will successfully execute advanced weapon manipulation practices and engage targets in confined spaces of vehicles, perform various maneuvers on a series of threat contingencies and elevated performance drills, and know how to maximize usage of cover in immediate close deadly street encounters. Students will leave with enhanced vehicle/barricade knowledge on offensive and defensive practices, situational assessment and execution, ballistic successes, and where the failures are for vehicle penetration with carbine and pistol rounds, communication, and counter-maneuver tactics with multiple personnel. Skillsets and tactics will be validated through multiple safe live fire stages. Students will be exposed to low-light / no-light vehicle live fires interior and exterior of the vehicles. Through safe practices, students will conduct buddy-team live fire vehicle maneuvers. Students will leave with an advanced stage level of performance, confidence, and skills that maximize mental readiness for everyday unknowns. This program enforces the safety and accountability of all actions. Students will be developed through various building phases of crawl, walk, and run for the shooter to advance achievable and realistic standards.
