Night Fighter Level 1 is designed to arm students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of night vision operation and use. Beginning with gear choice and setup, the class provides students the tools for learning to safely / effectively move, shoot, and communicate in low-light/no-light environments. Students will participate in a variety of movement, stalking, and live-fire exercises aimed at producing a core competency with night vision goggles, lasers, and white light.
In accordance with ITAR Regulations, only U.S. Citizens will be accepted to participate in TNVC courses. NO EXCEPTIONS. Proof of citizenship is required. This is a physical class and students are encouraged to be in good physical condition. Students must have basic tactical weapons handling skills prior to the class. As such, students are required to produce proof of successful completion of tactical carbine and pistol classes, or previous military or law enforcement training prior to this course (no, your 4-hour CCW class does not count). To ensure your prior training classes meet the requirement, please email
