3-Day C.A.S.T. (Confined Area Safety/Survival Training)


See our upcoming events page for dates.

An intensive three day course with basic or instructor certification at the end. This program is designed for persons working in confined areas such as airplanes, school buses, trains, etc. or for law enforcement officers who may find themselves in common carriers. It is easily adapted to living rooms, kitchens, office environments, courtrooms, etc. The class also includes a "Cockpit Combat Component" which will allow those in control of common carriers to inflict both debilitating and lethal force while being strapped into a safety seat.

This class is highly appropriate for law enforcement officers as it includes such information as: officer as hostage scenarios, citizen as hostage scenarios, dealing with crowds of civilians in high risk confined area scenarios and much more. Upon completion of the three day Instructor course, participants will be able to teach the most critical basic tenets of the program with others who may find themselves in similar situations

Modern Warrior® Defensive Tactics Institute, world leaders in the development of environmental combat training, is proud to announce its C.A.S.T. (Confined Area Safety/Survival Tactics) Program.

The program is designed for persons working in confined areas such as Airplanes, School buses, Trains, etc. and has been modified with a "Cockpit Combat Component" which will allow those in control of common carriers to inflict both debilitating and lethal force while being strapped into a safety seat.
