Viking Tactics Inc Offers Tactical Commanders Course

Viking Tactics, Inc Tactical Commanders Course

Restricted to Active Duty Law Enforcement & Military
Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Center

The greatest responsibility a leader can have is to commit men into harm’s way… The Tactical Commander’s Course is designed to practice tactical planning and the decision making process. Throughout the five day course, each Tactical Commander will be required to make decisions that may decide the success or failure of the mission. Utilizing ICS as the architecture for the course, Tactical Commanders will be exposed to new “time sensitive” planning techniques. The course will be scenario intensive to afford maximum iterations for each student. We will take time to discuss what tactics have evolved in the current GWOT era. The culmination exercise will employ multi jurisdictional units and missions. It is our intent to stress Tactical Commanders with realistic scenarios where they can practice making time sensitive decisions.

Primary Instructors: Lieutenant Colonel (R) Tom Di Tomasso and Sergeant Major (R) Kyle Lamb are experts at synchronizing joint agency assets and battlefield operating systems. Each with twenty years of service, mostly in the Army Special Operations Command, SGM Lamb and LTC Di Tomasso bring the most up to date evolution of tactics, techniques and procedures learned on the battlefields of the Global War on Terrorism. Most recently, they served as a Joint Task Force Command Team in Iraq, responsible for more than twelve hundred special operations forces and government agency personnel.
