    Default Where to get room clearence training?

    Hi,

    Me & my brother would like to get some proper training on the correct way of room entry & building clearance.

    Where in the UK offers this kind of course?

    Preferably not too expensive, and located in the SE of UK.

    Any ideas or recommendations?

    Thanks in advance for the advise

    ive been to a police/ military training course called Mottt (something like modus operandi tactical training......tits, cant remember exactly) but that was very cool, we did some room clearing and general training from people in that industry so yeah was cool, and i got a free mottt pen :D

    found the web address: http://www.mottt.co.uk/

    and it was based right next to the mall in reading, so not too far a journey

    MOTTT are now running training sessions at the old USAF base in Upper Heyford, they have a large 3 story accomodation block which includes 2 stairwells, 70 bedrooms, came across as a great bunch of lads and very welcoming was my impression.

    Never seen the point of these unless 10 or so of the same guys you normally play with go with you. Helps to all be on the same song sheet.

    Not sure how vague you need to be to fit with Z1's rules, but there's "another retailer" in Huddersfield that just opened up their own site, they do room clearing training from what I hear.

    Myself and a large group of friends from combat south, did a training day with Stirling Airsoft on building entry and room clearing, great day and learned alot. Not to sure if they still do it, might be worth a check

    Yep, Op4 has branched away from airsoft now completely, South West Wargames used to be the main banner, then OP4 piggy backed for a more professional stance but now they have completely gone their seperate ways.
    OP4 however do professional courses, anti piracy (Marsec), CP work etc etc.

    I don't know if the OP was looking to improve his "airsoft game" or just wanted to learn these skills for his own reasons, but it's worth noting they rarely make a smidgen of difference when it comes to playing airsoft.

    Room clearance and hostile intervention usually relies on an element of surprise/an alternative entrance route. These things don't really happen in airsoft games as both sides are usually clued bang on to where the "enemy" is coming from and when...

    If you are indeed looking to further your own skills for maritime security jobs, CP work or something similar, I can whole heartedly recommend Associated Risks Group. I recently completed their Maritime Competency Course.

    As the mentioned brother it is to improve our airsoft game.

    As much as we love running around randomly running and gunning we seem to have a lot more fun doing more serious tactics. Since we have started we have had a few situations of doing fire and movement, corner pieing, flanking etc while working together. But there have been too many (though decreasing) instances of where if we had known each others movement better, checked corners better then those "deaths" would have been avoided or the movement more successful.

    We have watched several videos on youtube on tactics but more focused direction on what to do, what we're doing wrong and sneaky tactics would be good. As we have been playing at Urban Assaults night games we can see the need for CQB tactics. The night aspect can add surprise and allows for some sneakiness!

    tbf - a lot of the ppl i bump into at games are ex or current military...you could probably just befriends them and ask them to take you through it - im sure if you asked your marshals nicely they'd let you turn up early for use of the rooms or let you run about during lunch time.

    I frequently train with a Danish company called Stunt360 in stunt-related stuff and they have a number of serving Danish SF guys who run workshops for them in room clearing, stairwells, team movement, using six-bangers, shooting from a vehicle etc. If you can get on one of their dedicated "SWAT & Firearms" courses you can learn quite a bit. But they are in Denmark which is a bit of a trek from SE England

    But on the whole can't see it being of any use unless you're playing with a team who have the same SOPs as you, most airsofters will be barrelling in with the tactical slide we saw endorsed in Act of Valour

    As others have said this is a difficult one for airsoft. When training like this happens in real world it's done with the same team mates and every body knows what each other will do. Unless you can get a large enough group of you that always play together and train together it'll be difficult. Another thing to consider is that in real world, one of the reasons these tactics work is because of the fear of being killed, which doesn't happen in airsoft. I've only been playing airsoft since late last year and have already noticed that a lot of the tactics I'm trained in (from close protection and the army) aren't as effective as they are in real world. To that end I wouldn't bother paying for a proper course as it'll be a lot of money. You're best bet is to either find an airsoft tactics course or find someone that could teach you.

    I'vehad extensive room clearance training from the wife.

    Usually,'it involves making sure I don't leave any beer bottles, crisp packets or choccy wrappers laying around after I watch a film. Also trained in cup-clearing drills and dishwasher loading techniques.

    I would be willing to show you guys at gzw one weekend if it's cool with the site? Go through everything from breaching to clearing hard and soft styles.

    If you are willing to travel Tac House Spartan in Chesterfield run training days every so often, they have one to the guys from Thomas Lowe Defence supply the pyro and often they bring some operational distrataction devices or kit. Really good days and focussed for airsoft.

    The other option (as Ben mentioned above) is come to one of the 2 Midlands Airsoft Fairs, where there is a local team who run some very informal training, again this is specifically focussed for airsoft, as there are different challenges and reactions invovled when thre is no risk to life. there are also free pistol / shotgun games all day to go and put what you learn to good use. The team cover anything from 2 man tactics to small team tactics.

    Both Tac house and The Gaol (where the midlands airsoft fair is held) can also do private days, with training. Give them a call for prices etc, but you would need probably about 10 or more to make it viable.

    I'm [I]fairly[I] sure that CAG (Combat Airsoft Group) run CQB Training weekends, if not then I'm again reasonably confident that Stirling Airsoft do training as well.
