Description: The main objective of the module is the improvement of the Boarding Team’s skills necessary to perform tactical movement/sweep onboard a suspect vessel (SV).  During the practical training, the trainees learn step by step the room clearing fundamentals. They also learn and execute techniques on how to clear corners, ladders and stairwells. Additionally they learn and execute tactical movement in passageways, small compartments and also on open decks. Finally, they are practising on basic room clearing, using marking ammunition weapons systems and rounds.  All the practical training is conducted onboard the training ship. This practical training gives a great opportunity to all Boarding Party members to train in a realistic environment.

Objectives: Upon completion the Boarding Party will be better able to:

  1. Apply tactical movement procedures in passage ways.
  2. Clear passage ways.
  3. Clear stairwells/ladders.
  4. Apply compartment entry procedures.

The duration of the module is 4 training hours (1h classroom and 3h practical) and it depends on the training level of the Boarding Party.
