During this course, students will be introduced to the Redback One Shooting System (RSS).

RSS is a complete training system that provides the end user with a consistent approach to the tactical employment of the M4 Carbine and issued pistol include; carriage, control, handling and operation.

By adopting the principles of RSS, the end user will be able to safely and confidently employ both weapons systems to a high degree of speed, efficiency and accuracy while operating in a tactical environment.

All RSS techniques are simple to learn and replicate under stress. This is an important part of the methodology as many first responders and military personnel do not have the opportunity to conduct routine training in advanced weapons manipulation. With the Redback Training System (RTS) as the deliver vehicle combined with the instructional capability of the RB1 cadre, end users are able to receive and assimilate the information quickly.


RB1 cadre will introduce each skill by explaining the purpose of the skill, why it is important to learn and how it can be applied in a combat situation. Students will then receive a demonstration detailing the standard to be achieved. Students will conduct collective and individual practice in each skill allowing them to achieve a proficient standard prior to being tested.
