The course is presented by members of our cadre;  unique, multi-deployment experienced Operators from the US Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC).

CQB1 focuses on individual and 2 person teams – analogous to a husband and wife team responding to a Home Invasion scenario, 2 business partners protecting their place of business, time critical active shooter response, or Patrol Officers making high risk entries and clears.
