High Risk Security Operations

Introduction

You must be 21 years old to attend this course
This is an intensive seven-day course designed to prepare individuals to provide high-risk security operations in NON-permissive environments (Iraq, Haiti, Afghanistan, Africa, Pakistan, et al.). The procedures and tactics presented during the training are the same methods used by GSGI when providing security in today’s most demanding locations. The instructional team provides real-world scenarios based on their own experiences during overseas operations.

Topics

  • Advanced firearm skills (handgun/carbine)
  • Helo arrivals / departures
  • GPS navigation (Garmin V recommended)
  • Basic land warfare and force-on-force attack drills
  • Tactical driving (PIT/ramming/barriers) convoy an motorcade operations
  • Route selection and attack recognition
  • IED/VBIED recognition
  • High-risk urban movement
  • Foreign firearm familiarization
  • High-risk foot formations
  • High-risk advances and two- and three-car arrivals and departures
  • Vehicle evacuations and open-air rescues
  • Radio procedures
  • Unarmed combatives
  • Low-light operations (driving with night-vision devices and low-light shooting)

Ammunition Requirements

500 pistol rounds and 1,000 carbine rounds. 9mm (9×19) is the minimum service caliber for this course.

Gear

  • Pistol with three high-capacity (15+ round) magazines or five lower-capacity (7-8 round) magazines
  • Carbine with sling and three high-capacity (15+ round) magazines
  • Magazine pouches with the ability to hold at least three magazines for each firearm system on your body at one time

Note: All gear should be tried and tested prior to arrival. For example: Aimpoint or EOTEC sighted-in and mounted to weapon with new batteries; familiar sling system able to manipulate weapon to high or low port; quality footwear already broken in (no dress shoes), etc. Trying to break-in new gear or use unfamiliar equipment will significantly reduce the quality of your experience in this course.

Mobile Force Protection Training

Introduction

The Military Mobile Force Protection Training (MMFPT) course focuses on enhancing the survivability of the operator while engaged in SOF operations in both urban and rural environments – using both tactical and non-standard vehicles. This course is developed in response to the threat of insurgent activities in Iraq and Afghanistan, although the principles of the instruction apply to any high-threat operating environment.

Through realistic scenarios, the instruction deals with the physiological and psychological aspects of combat to reduce hesitation. This allows correct response to initial contact and maximizes the options available to the team for enhanced survivability. The training also provides opportunity to evaluate response under worst-case conditions such as limited ammunition, small isolated groups of operators (2-4 personnel), wounded team members and no immediate support available.

Using the Simunition® FX® system and live pyrotechnics, GSGI staff creates a realistic threat to condition the student’s response to fear and improve their tactical skills with actual firearms. The Simunition® FX® system allows the use of modified-issue firearms with the same magazine capacities as firearms actually carried in combat. Further, it goes beyond the “point and splat” paint-ball method and allows students to use the same marksmanship and tactical skills acquired during the training cycle. This realism in training can mean the difference between life and death.

This course will enhance the capabilities of students by developing increased survival skills and providing well-trained instinctive responses to threats. The training is designed to be as realistic as possible to simulate the operator’s combat environment, while maintaining safety and control to ensure no personnel are injured and no equipment is damaged. The course of instruction is progressive, building upon previously acquired skills. To maximize each student’s chance of success, sufficient instructors are made available to ensure no student falls behind in training, using breakout training as needed.

Aim

To ensure that each operator can accomplish individual and team force protection objectives under stress in a high-threat environment.

Topics

  • Fundamentals of pistol and carbine marksmanship
  • Manipulation and malfunction drills
  • Shooting positions
  • Using a vehicle for cover practical demonstration
  • Appropriate use of cover and concealment on vehicles
  • Terminal ballistics considerations
  • Fire and movement
