About the Course


Course Information

The Vehicle Tactics course teaches students the dynamics of armed confrontations inside and around vehicles. The characteristic of vehicular confrontation is sudden, aggressive and of high intensity. In this way, the Vehicle Tactics Module was developed to increase life expectancies in this type of armed confrontation, as well as to understand the protocols that govern individual or team-based vehicular combat.

The Vehicle Tactics Low Light “Advanced Vehicular Combat” course uses the protocols used in the fundamentals Vehicle Tactics course in a more advanced way and with dynamic and interactive scenarios and focused on the ability to read and perceive threats. The use of TCCC protocols and the use of advanced pistol/rifle techniques make this course the most complete course in the context of vehicular combat.
