Training


Kinetic Ops can provide a wide variety of training and familiarization across a broad spectrum of weapons. We have in inventory non-select fire weapons that represent common battle field, DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle) and Sniper weapon systems.  This ensures our customers can either train with or handle for familiarization, the same weapons their unit or department uses.  If you want to attend a course but do not have a weapon of your own, a weapon may be rented for the duration of the course (subject to availability).

We specialize in developing custom courses tailored to the individual so that you receive the exact training you are looking for.  Because of that, we are constantly updating courseware to reflect the latest information. While we also can teach some NRA courses by request; we are scaling them back as we find the custom courses fulfill client needs better.
