PREREQUISITES: This is “crawl, walk, jog” course.  

At a minimum, participants need to demonstrate safe weapons handling skills, understand basic operation of their handgun including loading and unloading/clearing procedures.

Weapons and Gear:

Below you will find a list of the minimum equipment that will be necessary to complete the course.

While not necessary, you may want to consider some of the items on the recommended gear list as it can greatly enhance your training experience. Much of this gear can be found in the Altus Range Pro Shop.



Serviceable Handgun - We generally do not recommend anything less than 9mm.  Smaller caliber handguns often utilize low-capacity magazines which can diminish training time. However, if you have a handgun in a caliber less than 9mm that you want to train with, you are more than welcome to attend.

Minimum of 3 serviceable magazines

Minimum of 1 spare concealed magazine pouch

Eye and ear protection

Weather appropriate clothing

Serviceable inside of the waistband carry holster. We recommend a good kydex holster from a reputable manufacturer. Please ensure the holster has good retention as we will be moving dynamically, kneeling, crouching etc… The holster needs to completely encompass trigger/guard

Sturdy Belt Suitable for your chosen concealment holster

700 rounds of ammunition

Any equipment the individual cannot provide must be communicated to ALTUS prior to the beginning of training. ALTUS will fill the shortages on a case-by-case basis.


Pocket Flashlight or small weapon mounted light

Individual First Aid Kit with Tourniquet

Multitool (sight adjustments, weapon repairs etc.)


Training Blade- Altus utilizes Emmerson CQC style training blades for knife work. If you have a blade you carry, feel free to bring a TRAINING BLADE in that style

    Useful Class

    I would highly recommend taking this class. The information provided was practical and so easy to digest. Josh is a great instructor, he provides the information in a logical and gradual way to not overwhelm but still challenge. Getting to shoot the moving HEKTR target gave more realism to the scenarios and allowed you to think through the situation under stress.

    Josh is one of the best communicators I've had the privilege of training under. He has an ability to take concepts that seem complicated and make them easily digestible. The range is fantastic along with the accommodations. The HEKTR training robot provides a level of stress and realism that I haven't experienced before. Highly recommend this class.
