ctt_2daycarb_mr2a0710_121716_fb23_1The Street and Vehicle Tactics Course is an extremely fast paced course combining much of the individual 2-day pistol and 2-day carbine courses combined with hard earned experience running motorized PSD in the heart of the Sunni Triangle during 2003-’04 as well as motorized combat operations in Al Anbar province in 2005.The pace of training will be dictated by the level of experience but it is Highly recommended that an Alias instructor taught pistol or carbine course has been taken previous to attending. It will deal extensively with encounters during entry and exit from vehicles as well as strategies for getting from your vehicle with all occupants and moving to a safer and more tenable position.

The CTT-Solutions programs of instruction are designed to give shooters specific answers based on operational experience of multiple vetted military/ LE sources, testing and historical data. All techniques taught are highly technically and tactically efficient and effective in the use of a pistol and carbine for combative engagements in and around vehicles.  The course requires the extensive use of steel targetry to accomplish rapid gains in skills with instant feedback as well as approximately 500 rounds of pistol and 500 rounds of carbine ammunition per student. The high round count and the use of steel give the shooter time and apparatus to refine his/her shooting technique based on the principles taught.
