I have recently undertaken the 2 Day maritime firearms refresher course with Eurotactical in France, And would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone considering or currently working within the maritime industry.
First rate Instruction from Range Qualified former Service-personnel with extensive careers as Weapons Instructors in the RM/RN.
Lesson tutorial periods were pitched at a gradually progressive level within a relaxed environment.
Location and Accomodation conducted within Brittany north/west France. Easily commutable from Portsmouth via the Ferry.A pickup was organised from the terminal resided at 1st Rate accomodation at a locally run farmhose that served excellent meals within the vicinity of the course location.
Range package - Full calibre weapons used. conversed and practiced with 10 various systems on a 100 metre range. Additional refreshers and practical sessions on theory and principles of application of fire.
The potential to gain additional F/ARMS licence also gives the option of regular range practice throughout the year!!
I came away from the course with a regained confidence in the practical and theoretical knowledge/use of arms that are used within the maritime sector. I have attended previous MFCC courses over 1 day in the past within the UK, but the added benefits of attending this one were that of the location within the French countryside but primarily with the abiity to be able use full calibre and various systems something that you are unable to achieve in the UK coming away with a much broader knowledge and experience of the weapon systems that are used within the maritime sector.
Value for money at £600!!
