Centrifuge Training Logo

The centrifuge is a simple yet effective machine. It can be found in laboratories rotating at high speed utilized as a process of discovery, isolating and refining its contents. It is this same systematic, data-driven approach Centrifuge, LLC utilizes in delivering pragmatic solutions to the modern problem solver.

VCQB 

Class Cost: $550
2-Day Open Enrollment
Additional $20/day range fee paid CASH OR CHECK collected on Day 1

DESCRIPTION:

Vehicle CQB is an accelerated shooting class focused on positional shooting and a critical look at how we have historically fought in and around vehicles.  Students will push the boundaries of “traditional” cover and concealment utilizing various cars and trucks in a true 3D environment. Drills will incorporate critical weapon employment while engaging threats in, around, from, over and under vehicles with a heavy emphasis on problem solving. Live ballistic demos with a variety of ammunition will be conducted as the class explores ballistic deflection, deformation, penetration and terminal effect in direct correlation to various vehicle mediums. Both days of this course will be long days, so come prepared.
For Full Course Descriptions and Requirements see link under Available Classes.

PRE-REQUISITES:
  • MDFI Foundation Handgun

DESCRIPTION:

All tactics must work when opposed.  This is the corner stone of VCQB and all course material at Centrifuge Training.  The opposed variant class puts what you've learned to work against moving, fighting force on force role players.  Like all of our courses, this is a problem solving endeavor as students navigate shoot / no shoot scenarios, immersive low light drills and med work in a fast paced, vehicle centric class.

  • VCQB or VCQB Instructor
REQUIRED GEAR:
  • 250 rounds of NLTA
