Duration: 11 Days Hands-on HOST A COURSE
Course Code: FE-TBC1018
Cost: $2875.00

This complete breaching course is designed to provide tactical operators with complete knowledge of breaching methodologies and their applications in various environments.   The 11 day hands-on training combines our Basic/ Intermediate Explosive Breacher Course (TEBC) and our Manual, Mechanical, Ballistic, Thermal, and Hydraulic Breacher course (M.M.B.T.H) into one continuous curriculum.

This comprehensive format maximizes the participates overall understanding, proficiency, and tactical abilities in matching the most sound breaching methods to specific targets, missions, and environments as well as properly deploying different breaching methods in support of one another.  Furthermore, by combining all breaching methodologies into one course, this training minimizing the cost and time associated with attending separate venues.
