Tactical Simulations understands that further education for security specialists is an important element for career development as well as operational understanding.
Tactical Simulations provide a range of accredited live and simulated firearms training courses in the United Kingdom and overseas.
The UK is one of the leading countries providing private security personnel to high risk areas. However, due to strict firearms regulations, (especially 9mm pistol), many operatives looking to work in such environments have to travel overseas in order to gain the essential training and competency in such weapon systems.
The 9mm pistol is the most popular side arm, secondary and often primary weapon in the world.
UK Firearms Regulations and Simulation Technology
The UK has very strict laws regarding firearms making it illegal to train with 9mm pistol outside of the military or law enforcement. Tactical Simulations bridges the gap between strict laws and training needed by those working under the private sector banner in high risk areas or hostile environments by employing the latest technology to simulate live firearms training with weapons systems that are identical in weight and function as their live counterpart.
Simulation is now a standard part of military and law enforcement training worldwide:-
Simulation training is now standard in many professional areas including pilots, F1 racing drivers and even surgeons. This shows how far simulation technology has come in recent years.
Pistol Training UK
Tactical Simulations run a number of pistol training courses giving you the skill to be safe and proficient in firearms handling to more tactical and defensive firearms training needed for working in hostile environments.
Tactical Simulations provide a simulated training platform designed to address basic to advanced level training in small arms. From personal skills including safety, weapons handling and marksmanship tests to close protection training, reconstructed historic scenario simulations to progressive realistic engagement training. Scenario engagement platforms provide more intense pressured training than you would receive on a live shooting range due to the level of safety. Simulation allows trainees to purposely undertake high-risk activities or procedural tasks within a safe environment without dangerous implications and able to gain a greater understanding about the consequences of their actions and the need to reduce any errors.
Live Firearms Training in the UK and Overseas
Tactical Simulations run a number of live firearms training courses in the UK and overseas. Some of our courses are a combination of live and simulated.
All courses are accredited and include competency certification.
Weapon systems include:-
Accredited Firearms Competency Courses
All of our firearms training courses are accredited and follow guidelines such as the ISO 28007 Maritime and ISO 18778 Land Based, as well as ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) pistol firearms standards. Our 2, 3 and 5 day courses include Accredited Firearms Competence certification.
Bespoke courses designed to meet your requirements.
Trainers / Instructors
Our instructors, from military and private security backgrounds have many years of worldwide operational experience including the Middle East, Africa and Asia, hold the relevant teaching qualifications and are approved to deliver a range of training courses including SIA Level 3 Close Protection.
Our simulated and live training is based on tried and tested firearms training, at the same time putting students through immersive environments that develop their physical and mental capacity in a way that was previously nearly impossible.
Our simulation training is designed to expose students to real-life scenarios where can assess reaction when confronted by a threat.

Simulating scenarios in order to practice different actions and responses that are required in real life situations.
This process is highly effective for knowledge retention.
Simulatd training is a proven tool to improve learning, encourages experimentaion and accepts mistakes which is essential in the context of learning.
Scenario Based Simulated Firearms Training
One of the many advantages with simulated firearms training is that we can place the shooter into any environment:-
Simulation training is designed to expose students to real-life scenarios and see how they react when confronted by a threat.
Our training facility is equipped to put the student into a wide range of scenarios in order to provide the best firearms training possible.
