Solo CQB Training Course

Solo CQB (Close Quarters Battle) is a 4-hour course that teaches participants how to maneuver tactically inside of a structure while responding to a variety of events such as:

  • Home invasion
  • Threats to loved ones inside of a structure
  • Robberies gone wrong
  • Active shooter events
  • Emergency exit of dangerous events

It is built around our highly acclaimed High Threat CQB Program for law enforcement and military units. 88 Tactical’s unique High Threat CQB curriculum is based around human behavior in high stress situations.

The Solo CQB course starts with a presentation covering the basic principles of maneuver inside of a structure, then takes students through drills covering how to tactically advance through rooms, hallways, stairs, windows, and other interior geometry.

The course culminates in a series of interactive scenarios using training weapons against role players. This course is interactive, making use of shot indicating laser training pistols and training projectiles (airsoft) against real people, and does not include live weapons or ammunition in the training.
