UPDATE: Due to extenuating circumstances, DTG & MDT are delaying this course offering until Fall 2015. The new date will be published when finalized; currently registered students have a guaranteed slot.
YOU WANT THIS; YOU NEED THIS!! You’re not going to find a better Basic NPT Skills course for the money anywhere!
From 15 to 17 May 2015, MDT (JC Dodge) and DTG (Tom Randall) will conduct a Neighborhood Protection Team skills oriented course as described in, “A Failure of Civility”, by Mike Garand & Jack Lawson, comprised of classes taken from both MDT’s, “Regional Security Forces” and DTG’s “Essential Skills” series at MDT’s training site. While MDT & DTG will be hosting the class, there’ll be additional ‘guest’ professional instructors conducting various classes – we’ve got a great line up! Participants will be exposed to various perspectives of NPT operations, skill enhancement methods, and ‘tricks o’ the trade’ that demonstrate a resource and information rich environment for the person who wants to either refresh or learn what might be necessary in a grid down situation they may face one day. Classes will be presented from a ‘Train the Trainer’ perspective so that the participants can pass along what they learn to their own NPT members.
Arrival, Meet & Greet: 1000 15 May
Class start: 1200 15 May
Class end: 1700 17 May
Location: Echo Valley Training Center, WV – http://www.echovalleytrainingcenter.com/
Participants will live in a field environment the entire class period and provide their own food & water. Recommend getting individual fitness levels as good as can reasonably be expected by class start in order to get the most out of the class as the participant possibly can.
Cost: $300 per person; Teams (6 people registering together) $250 per person
Hand Outs on various classes will be provided to all attendees.
To confirm attendance, contact either MDT or DTG via email for specifics on payment. Once attendance is confirmed by course fee payment, each participant will be sent a Release of Liability, a recommended pack list, a link to purchase a MGRS map of the training area (optional), and directions. The Release of Liability must be executed per the instructions provided and presented on upon arrival at the training site.
