In our military only Light Reconnaissance course, students will learn the harsh realities of ground intelligence collection against a peer enemy on the modern battlefield. We'll work through supply chain shortages, loss of air dominance, drone operations, electromagnetic warfare, and the Five Reconnaissance Strategies. 

This is designed for the established Recon Team to go from good to great, and it differs from our civilian course in three key ways:

1. We can cover reporting formats, TTPs, and SOPs in detail that would otherwise be shielded by good OPSEC. 

2.  We can push the training threshold to the level of reality. Our civilian classes are open to all regardless of physical fitness level. This course assumes that all students are trained and physically fit Infantrymen. 

3. We can focus the content towards OCONUS operations and all the challenges that come with that.

Military units please do not sign up through this website. Reach out to to set up a course for your personnel. We're happy to set up "train the trainer" courses for a few members of a Recon team who want to come to class, but don't have the backing of their unit.
