Northern Red CQB courses are centered around actions taken once inside a structure. In addition to providing further training that builds on previously acquired CQB skills, this course delivers the students with a comprehensive overview of Urban Movement techniques.

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.
