Duration: 5 days HOST A COURSE
Course Code: FE-TBC182
Cost: $1680.00

In the tactical breaching world, PROPER, operationally EFFECTIVE, and SAFE WALL  breaching is considered an advanced skill which requires specialized training. Although covered to various extents in most basic, intermediate, and advanced courses, the nature and complexity of breaching through these targets requires specific training which cannot be reasonably achieved in courses which encompass all targets.

This one-of-a-kind curriculum provides the necessary format for tactical breachers to focus solely on the unique and complex skills-sets required to PROPERLY, EFFECTIVELY, and SAFELY breach through a wide verity of WALLS commonly found throughout their operational environments. The training is designed to cultivate the breacher’s ability to implement the 4 fundamentals of breaching as they apply to walls – Target Analysis, Tactical Considerations, Selection and Deployment of Primary and Secondary Breaching Methods, and Creation and Implementation of Contingency Plans.
