TNVC Training and Education Team

At TNVC we recognize that while night vision, thermal, and other Visual Augmentation Systems (VAS) technologies are a potent tool and force multiplier for our Warfighters, law enforcement personnel, hunters, and private citizens who are dedicated to defense of self and nation.

We also recognize, however, that the technology alone without the proper education and training to employ it, is not enough. For this reason, while we continue to strive to bring the very best of technology available to end-users and consumers of all types, we have never believed in “hardware solutions to software problems.”

Our training curriculum has been developed by U.S. and allied Special Operations personnel and experienced SWAT and LE officers to incorporate the best practices and lessons learned from years of experience in operations, planning, and training. Every member of TNVC’s Training and Education Team has used NV and other sensor systems as an Armed Professional while under active threat, from overseas combat to domestic LE/SWAT, and understands the true importance and decisiveness of good training and knowledge in arriving at positive outcomes.

Our Team’s diverse real-world experience and flexible, adaptable curriculum allows the Training and Education Team to provide specific and specialized training that is relevant, realistic, and practical to students with different levels of knowledge and experience and that may have different operational requirements, concerns, and constraints. TNVC’s Training Program is constantly evolving–our Team recognizes that the “this is we’ve always done it” approach is insufficient in a rapidly changing world, and that today’s armed professionals and citizens don’t just face targets on a range, but dynamic and emerging threats that learn and evolve as well. While basic fundamentals and concepts rarely change significantly, we refuse to be dogmatic in our approach to training and education, getting tied up in “what we know,” and we are constantly seeking the most recent feedback and experience from downrange and on the line to integrate into our Training Program.

 

Mobile/Contract Training Packages

The TNVC Training and Education Team can provide a wide range of different training to suit different types of needs, to include New Equipment Training and Fielding for NV/VAS technologies, civilian home defense, LE-specific training, to mission planning/execution–either at our primary training location, the Alliance Police Training Facility in Alliance, Ohio, or send a Mobile Training Team (MTT) to your location.

Our Team can build custom training packages (including rental and training equipment such as NVDs, helmets, and IR laser/illuminators) for specific customer requirements and requests, and can assist with training program management to help organizations develop and maintain their own training sustainment programs.

Contract training can be conducted for civilian enthusiasts, law enforcement agencies and departments, military units, and other interested parties, however, all non-U.S. military or LE students are required to provide proof of U.S. Citizenship and verification that they are not a convicted felon, such as a current government issued CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) permit.

If you are interested in hosting a class in your area or through your agency, please e-mail training@tnvc.com for more information, including courses available, rates, and range facility and equipment requirements.
