Since the War on Terror began, this mission set has been used successfully capture or kill many of our Nation’s most dangerous enemies. Whether it is a planned mission, or a Time Sensitive Target, it is critical to have this capability in order to neutralize a mobile adversary. This course covers stopping techniques, duties and responsibilities for the assault team, vehicle extractions, isolation and containment of the objective, and contingency planning.
The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield.
The course is integrated so everyone understands how to work as a member of a team, delivering a spectrum of care that gives the wounded or critically injured the best chance of survival. This program covers the fundamentals of delivering care in an austere tactical environment. All training resources are taken from TCCC, PHTLS, peer-reviewed evidence, expert opinion, and after action reviews/lessons learned from real world experiences.
The instructors are combat experienced with SOF backgrounds and have treated numerous casualties in hostile/combat environments. We use the “train like you fight” and “crawl-walk-run” methodologies. The instructors take combat medicine very seriously and expect our students do the same. Our training focuses on the mind-set, assessments, and treatments needed to provide life saving interventions at the point of injury, and timely, tactical evacuation from the hostile area. Students will be placed in scenarios that challenge their skills allowing them to realize what is realistic and unrealistic in unknown situations. Practical, real-world interventions and improvisational solutions will be emphasized.
This is a non-live fire course. The course focuses on developing skills in applying tactics dynamically, and integrates UTM/Simunitions as a feedback and reinforcement mechanism.
The Northern Red Tactical Team Foundations course will provide students with the confidence and skills needed to effectively shoot, move, and communicate as part of a team in any environment. Whether working in two-man teams or larger, one must be able to instinctively apply Small Unit Tactics in order to be successful against the opposition.
The course begins with Individual Movement Techniques, which are the basis for Small Unit Tactics, and systematically builds to force-on-force scenarios where teams will have to employ immediate action drills to succeed.
Prior attendance at Northern Red’s Individual Mission Training course will allow a student to develop a more complete understanding in implementing fundamental skills in tactics at the team level. The Tactical Team Foundations training course is also a vital precursor in team-based tactics that will elevate a student’s capacity to progress through Northern Red’s Close Quarters Battle training course.
As with all of Northern Red’s training, the course will begin with a diagnostic assessment of students in order to establish a baseline of skills and standardization of tactics. The instructional portion of this course begins with the most important aspect of fighting against an armed and willing enemy; actions on entry into a room. Once this foundation is established, the course will rapidly progress into dealing with danger areas, doors, and moving through multiple rooms. Each block of instruction builds upon the previous one, providing students a systematic approach in learning how to deal with increasingly complex problems. Additional aspects of CQB covered in this course are; target discrimination, marksmanship, priorities of work in rooms, hallways, intersections, stairs, mindset, and force-on-force training, low-light/no- light considerations, and Multiple Team entries.
If the unit is unable to effectively and efficiently maneuver through built up areas to the targeted structure, then the unit could potentially compromise themselves, leading to increased risk to force through loss of surprise and/or premature escalation. Northern Red will provide day and nighttime blocks of instruction on CQB, Small Unit Tactics, movement techniques, actions on contact, route selection, planning considerations, and actions taken at the Last Covered & Concealed position (LCC). Through our instructional experience, Northern Red has found that this skill is often overlooked and under-trained. The proficiency of Urban Movement must not be overlooked when assessing your Units general readiness to conduct operations.
This course centers on detailed execution of pistol marksmanship fundamentals. These core skills are universal requirements for any shooter to improve their capabilities with their chosen or assigned pistol. Weapons proficiency in a tactical context demands repeatable, disciplined execution of these core skills.
All Northern Red marksmanship courses begin with a diagnostic that establishes each individual student’s baseline capability. The training progressively develops critical skills within the context of the standards that armed professionals adhere to. Pistol proficiency demands a disciplined focus on core skills, which can be further developed and refined with subsequent attendance at Northern Red’s Gunfighter Pistol course.
This course centers on detailed execution of carbine marksmanship fundamentals. These core skills are universal requirements for any shooter to improve their capabilities with their chosen or assigned carbine. Weapons proficiency in a tactical context demands repeatable, disciplined execution of these core skills.
