Max Velocity Tactical Announces New Training Courses

Romney, WV, (March 31, 2021) – Max Velocity Tactical is pleased to announce two innovative training classes for responsible citizens, adapted to the current ammo shortage crisis. These fundamental combat tactics classes, taught at the Velocity Training Center in Romney, WV, are open enrollment with no training prerequisite.

Hostile Environment Advanced Tactics (HEAT 1) is an introductory four-day class that will teach you tactical marksmanship and team tactical skills, including reaction to hostile threats and maneuver under hostile fire. HEAT 1 is the basic building block of our tactical training. Emphasis is the safe use of your weapon as an individual and as a member of a team. HEAT 1 is offered in two versions: HEAT 1 Live Fire (Classic) and HEAT 1 Hybrid (Ammo Saver).

HEAT 1 Live Fire (Classic) consists of two 2-Day sections:

Section 1 (Day 1 & 2) is conducted on the Flat Range. You will begin with fundamental weapon safety training and confirming the zero of your rifle. Next, you will learn weapon manipulation, fundamental shooting skills and how to clear weapon malfunctions. Then you will proceed to hostile environment marksmanship and individual react-to-contact drills.

Section 2 (Day 3 & 4) is conducted on Tactical Ranges 1 & 2. You will spend two days on the tactical ranges working in two-man pairs and four-man teams learning tactical drills that utilize reactive electronic pop-up targets and other training aids to replicate a real threat environment. Adding to your weapon safety and individual shooting skills, you now will learn team communication, situational awareness, and how to maneuver in a simulated hostile environment including ‘movement to contact’ as well as ‘break contact’ maneuver drills.

HEAT 1 Live Fire (Classic) 4-Day:

Cost: $850

Ammo Requirement: 800 rounds

HEAT 1 Hybrid (Ammo Saver) consists of two 2-Day sections:

Section 1 (Day 1 & 2) is conducted on the Flat Range. You will begin with fundamental weapon safety training and confirming the zero of your rifle. Next, you will learn weapon manipulation, fundamental shooting skills and how to clear weapon malfunctions. Then you will proceed to hostile environment marksmanship and individual react-to-contact drills using a professional training gas-blowback AR AirSim rifle that operates just like your AR-15.

Section 2 (Day 3 & 4) is conducted on the AirSim Tactical Ranges. You will spend Day 3 working in two-man pairs and four-man teams learning tactical drills that utilize reactive electronic pop-up targets and other training aids to replicate a real threat environment. Adding to your weapon safety and individual shooting skills, you now will learn team communication, situational awareness, and how to maneuver in a simulated hostile environment including ‘movement to contact’ as well as ‘break contact’ maneuver drills. Day 4 will utilize a highly-controlled, live enemy to practice the drills you learned on Day 3. This is where you will experience the practical application of the tactical skills you’ve learned against a live, moving enemy.

HEAT 1 Hybrid (Ammo Saver) 4-Day:

Cost: $800

Ammo Requirement: 300 rounds

Optional AirSim Rental (bring your own gas blowback rifle if you have it): $150.

Max Velocity Tactical specializes in teaching combat-proven, light infantry tactics, techniques and procedures adapted for the responsible, law-abiding citizen. The training curriculum is informed by a background and experience in SOF / elite forces and close protection / paramilitary contracting work. MVT classes are the real deal, and the tactics, techniques and procedures are familiar to any graduate of Ranger School or SFQC. Tactical classes are not simply a regurgitation of basic military manuals or training but are based on real world operational experience in hostile / combat environments.

Spaces available for both classes. Please check the Training Calendar here to see all currently scheduled Max Velocity Tactical classes.
