Troysgate Civilian Training Opportunities

The Troysgate civilian training program offers unique training opportunities where we provide challenging, realistic, civilian oriented, deadly encounter situations and engagements. Through the Troysgate Lab environment we have the capability to create a deadly encounter situation, so that the participant is able to learn and understand the event, see and feel what it is like, and gain the personal experience. The participant will be exposed to 6-8 highly challenging situational deadly encounter scenarios where she/he will be face-to-face with one or more adversaries at very close distances. The Troysgate Lab experience will test and challenge everything the participant knows, as well as their skills and abilities - weapons handling and marksmanship, communication, assessment, judgement, decision making and responses.

Our training will advance the participant to the highest level of deadly conflict training that is available today; there is nothing else in existence today that comes close to what we have. Our training program is designed to be an ongoing process where subsequent training exposures build on previous training, and each new situational scenario is gradually and increasingly more challenging that will continue the conditioning process and improve participant decision-making, performance, precision and response.
