The Night Fighter Fundamentals Course is designed to equip students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of night vision operation. The class will start with the psychology and benefits of fighting at night. The class will then move to industry standards for gear selection and setup. This class will provide the student with the tools to safely & effectively move, shoot, and communicate in low-light/no-light environments. Students will participate in a crawl, walk, run approach while learning to utilize their equipment. By the end of class, students will have progressed all the way through to a variety of movement and live-fire shooting exercises. These courses of fire are aimed at producing a core competency with night vision goggles, lasers, and white light. At the end of this course, students will have a clear understanding of why and how to fight at night.
This is a physical class and students are encouraged to be in good physical condition. Students must have basic tactical weapons handling skills prior to the class.
Students must have attended one of my shooting classes or private shooting sessions so I can ensure their ability to safely handle a weapon and to ensure everyone’s safety. NO EXCEPTIONS.
