Close Quarters Marksmanship Training

The Close Quarters Marksmanship course is a 2-day event focusing on the use and application of fundamentals and tactics in a close range environment, designed to teach shooters skills necessary to be successful in Close Range Marksmanship and CQB. Skills will be presented on a flat range to allow shooters to focus on the individual tasks in a building block methodology. This is the same methodology employed by Tier 1 Special Operations Units when training Operators before they are taught to enter rooms.


Attendees must be able to perform basic weapons operations, demonstrate safe weapons handling, and correct malfunctions without major error and without assistance.
