Prerequisite: This is a Skills Enhancement course. Ridgeline skills enhancement courses have been designed to place shooters in new positions, challenge durability of position and fundamentals, and improve speed and marksmanship. These courses provide less step by step instruction on basic skills with a higher emphasis on coaching to push boundaries and overcome obstacles so the student may achieve new levels of performance. This is not an entry level course. Safe handling skills, such as being able to safely load, unload and present a carbine are expected in this course. General safe firearms handling is expected of all students.

Next Course: If you are not confident in meeting the prerequisite for this course check out our Combative Carbine course to build the skills necessary to join this class. Following graduation of this course students should consider Ridgeline’s other Skill Enhancement carbine courses of Precision Rifle and Night Operator.
