Recondo — the class you’ve been waiting for!

Over 60 hours of training in 4 days!

Its finally here, the class you’ve been waiting for — Recondo School! Four completely packed fully immersive days of training with Special Operators on all aspects of patrolling. Learn all there is to know about small team reconnaissance, ambush, and raid.

Starting with the basics, 3-5 man element teams will conduct day and night reconnaissance missions. Next the teams will combine to conduct ambush patrols. The teams grow again to conduct raids on enemy encampments. The final day is live fire battle drills, learning to do everything safely with live ammunition.

Outside of the military nothing like this has ever been offered before. Others have done fantasy camps, no one has run the real deal. Most active duty infantrymen never get a chance for this level of training!

The Details

One of the ultimate expressions of this class was done during the Vietnam War and was known as MACV-RECONDO school. This school was set up by Project Delta (yes, the guys who later founded Delta Force) and then turned over to 5th SFG. This was the basis for LRRP/Ranger type operations in Vietnam. This course will be modeled after that school but with a modern backdrop and modern planning procedures.

Taught by Army Green Berets, Army Rangers, Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol members and other select Special Operations personnel. The best of the best. Each combat patrol will have at least one cadre member and larger patrols will have two or more per patrol. Cadre will be teaching, mentoring, and leading the patrols.

The course will be taught inside of a scenario wargame, just like all military exercises and like the Special Forces Qualification Course which uses “Pineland”. In this course we will be using the scenario of “Red Dawn”. A foreign military force has invaded America and now you are in the resistance fighting against them. Luckily US Army Green Berets have infiltrated your area to provide you training and leadership!

Immersive scenario based training is far more effective than a conventional course. Everything is “real” and has context and pieces learned on one day connect back in later in the scenario. This course will have over a dozen live role players playing the part of the enemy, have real people as part of the “underground” etc. FULLY IMMERSIVE TRAINING. InSights will be offering numerous “linked” courses around this scenario in the future.

Besides the patrolling track we will be offering a Tactical Operations Center track. These are the guys who make the missions run, produce and give intelligence briefings, run radio networks, debrief teams after missions, coordinate with underground forces and assets, meet and interview intelligence sources, “Battle track” teams and the enemy. Learn intelligence preparation of the battlefield, operational security, and tradecraft for the resistance environment. The TOC track is perfect for those who might not be up for four days and nights of moving through the woods but who still want to learn to contribute to the team.

Are you ready to save a life?

Shootings, stabbings, bombings, vehicular attacks — what they all have in common is life-threatening trauma. There are some injuries where death before the arrival of EMS is almost assured if not managed correctly and rapidly.

If such injuries occur to yourself or another during an ongoing fight, recognition and concise management of the injuries becomes critical. You may be the first responder. Do you have the knowledge and skill to make a difference?

Gain that knowledge and skill in this powerful one-day class — Tactical First Aid.

  • The true nature of civilian gunshot wounds, their low lethality and realities of their medical management
  • How to rapidly determine the relative seriousness of an injury and how that will affect your tactical treatment plan
  • The concept of “care under fire” and how it differs from a non-tactical medical situation
  • Techniques for moving casualties to a safer environment
  • Basic airway and ventilation assessment and management within a tactical setting
  • Assessment and management of bleeding and shock
  • Assessment and management of penetrating and blunt trauma
  • How to prepare a tactical first aid kit that will dramatically increase your treatment capabilities

Join Dr. Mike Shertz on either August 5 or August 6 for Tactical First Aid at West Coast Armory in Bellevue. But don’t wait — this class fills up every year!

Dr. Shertz is a qualified Special Forces Medic and is a member of the International Wound Ballistics Association and the American Society of Law Enforcement Trainers. Mike serves as the Chief Medical Officer and leads a team of Tactical Medics for the Washington County, Oregon, SWAT team.
