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.
