Hostile Environment Operators Course

A "Live Firing" Hostile Environment Operator's course specifically designed for Kurdistan and Iraq based Private Security Companies.

Hostile Environment Operators Course

Course Description

The hostile environment operators course is seven days of carefully selected tradecarft and mechanics, specifically pertaining to working in an "armed" capacity in a non-permissive, urban environment. Using an integrated learning approach, the course will cover numerous skills, subjects and techniques, in order to provide you with more effective, realistic and flexible "response options" to situations that you may encounter when working in non-permissive, urban environments. The course is delivered in such a way that you will be able to adapt them to your own operating procedures, in your respective areas of deployment.  


You will be taught how to fight your way out of violent situations and conduct several variations of live firing foot and vehicle contact drills and you will experience the challenges of extracting under LIVE FIRING conditions, in a purpose built "Street Scene" environment, where the normal confusion, noise and communication challenges are exacerbated, by the inability to physically see your other team members, which changes the entire dynamic of a team contact drill.


You will be put through numerous hostile environment scenarios, where you will be given a threat picture, a client and a task. Your soft-skills will be tested and you're not-so-soft-skills will be expected to show themselves at the appropriate times, which will be for you to decide when that is. You will also be put through uncomfortable and cringingly awkward conflict management scenarios, where role playing "characters" will not make it easy for you. 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. You will pre-brief and de-brief your team.


You will be taught our self-developed and unique "Surveillance Survey" procedure, which will teach you how to identify surveillance triggers and box locations, in order to identify where a surveillance team may set up on you.


Course Aim

The aim of the course is to prepare armed close protection operatives / teams and private security detail operatives / teams, for deployment to non-permissive and hostile environments.


Course Suitability

The course is designed for Individuals and teams from the following communities:

  • Hostile Environment Close Protection Operatives / Teams
  • Serving Military personnel

Course Syllabus

The course is primarily delivered from a "low profile" operational platform and is specifically related to urban / street environments. However, it can be delivered in a more "military" context, depending upon your operational requirements. 


During the Course, you will cover the following:

  • Conflict Management Scenario Based Training ( with role playing characters )
  • The Surveillance Survey.
  • Integrated Combative's Training
  • Weapon Handling Drills
  • Dry CP Contact Drills ( including both lone operator and team drills on foot and in vehicles )
  • Hostile Environment Scenario Training ( with role playing characters)
  • Live Firing Contact Drills ( including both lone operator and team drills on foot and in vehicles )
  • Stress Test Live Firing Shooting Accuracy Assessment
  • TCCC Medical Training Scenarios

We do NOT teach "J" turns or handbrake turns, simply because it is rare that a busy urban street environment will allow you the luxury of doing those evasive driving maneuvers successfully, particularly in a 4-ton B6 landcrusier.


We also cover House / Building / Vehicle Takeovers as extraction / safe haven, emergency response "options".


Course Eligibility


To attend this course, you must either already be:


  • Employed as an armed, close protection / private security detail operative/team
