JOC-CBRNE and Tactical Training Center.
Yesterday’s nuclear plant is today’s GTI Joint Operations Center (JOC), currently in use as one of our nation’s premiere training sites for USSOCOM forces, Law Enforcement special operations, federal agencies, and Urban Search and Rescue Teams.
JOC-Simunition®/ SRTA Throughout.
The GTI JOC has the capability to support complex Full Mission Profile training scenarios to test, train, and evaluate an entire Task Force or provide targeted skill set training from simple to the most difficult levels. The JOC offers training venues for: confined space rescue, low light operations, CQC, CBRNE, Live Fire and much more.
Deployment Training and Facilitation.
Because of its geographic location, it is naturally situated in a low visibility, discreet location, easily accessible by vehicle or rotor wing aircraft. Today’s replacement value of the facility is approximately $1 billion.
Live Fire Range
GTI's JOC flat range offers a secluded environment for live fire training for agencies and allows for weapon systems capable of up to .762 ammunition.
GTI's Pistol Range.
GTI's live fire range is 0-800 meters. The 300 meter section of the live fire range offers groups the ability to train privately on a static flat range; contains portable facades for concealed shooting drills; allows for shooting on the move drills as well as live fire from a vehicle training. The 800 meter section offers a challenging environment for rifle or sniper shooting drills.
CBRNE training at GTI’s Joint Operations Center (JOC).
The JOC is the most unique MOUT site available for training in the world. Offering a tactical training environment unmatched anywhere, by offering "real world" facilities in a setting that can be made as simple or as complex as required by the training agency.
The Government Training Institute’s Anti-Terrorism Force Protection course is taught by retired U.S. Army Special Forces Soldiers with real world operational experience in conducting Force Protection and Counter / Anti-Terrorism Operations. The entire course incorporates the latest AARs and lessons learned from OIF and OEF, giving soldiers the most recent, intensive, and realistic training experience possible.
Nuclear Training Facilities.
The JOC offers multiple options for CQC training, including; single and multi-room entry points (corner, center and “L” shaped), hallways for clearing procedures (long halls, “T”, four-way and “L” intersections), stairwells to develop clearing techniques (boxed, open and multiple landing) and is Simunition® and SRTA capable throughout.
Nuclear Incident Response Training Site.
The JOC is North America’s only radiological sterile spent nuclear fuels (SNF) reprocessing station. Yesterday’s nuclear plant is today’s GTI Joint Operations Center, currently available as one of our nation’s premiere tactical training sites for WMD / CBRNE consequence management forces, DoD GPF and SOF communities, Federal agencies, and Urban Search and Rescue Teams.
Confined Space and Elevated Rescue Training.
The GTI Joint Operations Center (JOC) is located on the East Coast in the South Carolina Advanced Technology Park, Snelling, SC Carolina, adjacent to the Department of Energy Savannah River Site, approximately five miles west of Barnwell, SC.
Rappel Tower from Rooftop
The Custom Rappel & Fast Rope course is designed to meet the needs of agencies with high angle rappelling capability and to teach students to safely and effectively utilize fast rope insertion systems. At the conclusion of this course students will have a working knowledge of tactical considerations for rappel operations, fast rope operations, safety checks, and air frame rigging procedures.
In the Custom Rappel & Fast Rope course emphasis is placed on tactical rappel operations for hostage rescue, dynamic entry and port / cover operations along with static tower training and rotary wing platforms if available.
DHS Type III, II and I SWAT Training.
In 2004, the D.H.S. created a comprehensive classification system for U.S. SWAT teams. There are three typing classifications ranging from Type III to Type I teams. The classification system was created to support the overall Incident Command System (ICS), allowing commanders at an incident to quickly determine what resources are available to them based upon the equipment, resources, and training levels of various SWAT teams.
