Covert Operators Non-Permissive Environment Course

Operating covertly in a small team or as a lone operator, in a non-permissive neighborhood, town, city or country, changes everything about how you respond to a situation and you’ve got to have appropriate and varied “response options” from which to call upon.

Your aim will be to remain covert, until that is no longer an option for you or your team … only YOU will know when it is time to go noisy … no one else can make that decision for you.

“…If you want something you’ve never had. You must be willing to do something you’ve never done…” – Thomas Jefferson

course description

The overall aim of the course is to provide you with more effective tactical response “options” when working covertly in a non-permissive environment, by promoting a more covert approach to your operational procedures. The course objectives are to provide covert individuals/teams with the ability to remain covert whilst working in a non-permissive, urban environment, where operational integrity is key to success.

This provides a more multi-dimensional selection of operating procedures and response options, whilst sustaining long-term operational capacity, durability and effectiveness. The course is based on covert British Intelligence tradecraft and mechanics that will allow you to operate, more effectively, in a non-permissive environment, with a reduced risk of compromise and an increased chance of operational success.

The course is delivered from a passive “covert/undercover” platform, whilst also providing that all-important capability for a more kinetic response option (if required) and is specific to urban / street / town environments and is specifically designed for Direct Action (DA) and Irregular Warfare (IW) operations.

We have tried to redefine what constitutes a “hostile environment” and believe that a “non-permissive” environment is a better and more realistic description of what you guys do and how you work.

It is NOT just the “location” of where you are operating, that makes it “non-permissive”, it is the “nature” of your role, the people you are working against and the consequences for you/your team/your client and/or your government, if compromised / captured, that makes it “non-permissive”.

Your soft-skills will be tested and your not-so-soft-skills will be expected to show themselves at the appropriate times, which will be for you to decide when that is. We place a lot of emphasis on your ability to think for yourself and deal with a situation in the way that YOU believe it should be dealt with.

Materials Needed


> Bring your own personal weapon systems (short and long).
> Ammunition is supplied.


The course is delivered from a covert/low-profile platform.

No “overt” tactical gear will be required at any stage throughout this course, so leave the drop-leg holsters, oakley gloves, 5.11’s and gargoyle wrap-arounds at home:

> Jeans, robust trousers
> Old shirts/t-shirts
> Light jacket
> Sneakers/shoes/boots (no military type footwear please)
> Sturdy belt

Please bring comfortable trousers and soft footwear for the combative training.

Please avoid wearing expensive clothing on the range as there is a risk of them being ripped/torn/damaged.

Absolutely no short-shorts / boob tubes or flip-flops on the range please – you know who you are!

On the last evening of the course, we organise a BBQ at the range facility and you can absolutely wear what you want…we promise!


Please bring your own “operational” kit and equipment as it’s crucial that you train from a familiar platform.

Please bear in mind that this is a “covert” course and any belt kit, holsters, magazine holders etc. must be suitable for working in a “covert” manner.

The Surveillance phase of the course will take place in the local area and the last thing we need is for anyone to be compromised, by a member of the public, due to a short/long being flashed around – not good.
