If you are unsure what to expect, please read the previous page again. If you are keen to go ahead, please pay the fee as per below and complete the registration form below.

First off – bring a positive attitude, open and willing to learn. 

Bring all personal kit – like a vest, gloves, knives, firearm, holster etc. And clothes for the range. Closed shoes, pants and a shirt that you can freely move about in. Hat, sunblock. Lots of water and food for the day. And anything else on the list that will be sent to you.

Bring a notebook (except if you have a photographic memory) or some sort of tool to take down info (if you want). Ensure you can do a basic fitness test – 2.4km run, push-ups, pullups, situps etc. (not for Expendables)


Any Rambo, know-it-all attitudes and mindset.

To apply you will need to be medically fit enough to do exercise and to be able to pass a basic army fitness test. You will also need to own your own, licensed handgun.

The fitness is not done to disqualify you from the course.
There are no fitness qualification requirements to enroll on Lone Operator other than functional fitness.
Sadly, however, the fact of the matter is that you will not be able to defend yourself successfully if you are not functionally fit.
This means you need to be able to drag yourself or your partner out of harm’s way, need to be able to go down prone, roll, get up on the knees etc.
Once on the course, everyone quickly realises where their fitness levels are lacking.
The fitness on Lone Operator is to firstly create a benchmark and then cultivate a fitness mindset.
Once on the course, everyone quickly realises where their fitness levels are lacking and then start working on getting fitter.

You need at least your own licensed handgun, 3 x mags and proper holsters with good retention for both gun and mags. You will also need a good quality belt to ensure your gun sits sturdy on your person. Proper range attire, hardworking clothes and closed shoes. Proper ear and eye protection. You cannot shoot with your normal reading or sun glasses. You need ballistic protection. Sunblock, hat and your own chair. And also your own food and drinks for a long day. Watch the video below. 

The course will cost you R880 pm for 12 months. Included in this fee is the main session’s range fee. 

Included in this fee are the following

1. Range fees for the Lone Operator program (1 session per month)
2. Access our online portal with videos and notes on lessons
3. Lone Operator Cap
4. Free access to some of Fortis’ online courses
5. Discount on Fortis Stand Alone courses (where applicable)

Excluded from this fee are the following

1. Travelling to and from venues used for training
2. Ammunition needed for training
3. Range fees for courses outside the normal program
4. Any kit needed over and above what you currently have
5. Food and drinks

You will be informed on your team WhatsApp group what is needed for each session, including attire. Range clothes will be pants, a shirt, and closed shoes. Remember we are shooting from all positions so your clothes must be able to handle dirt and wear and tear. A hat and shooting glasses are good. We do have shooting glasses and ear muffs you can use on the range if you don’t have your own. Sunblock can help.

Included in your monthly payment is your main session’s range fee. Any other sessions you attend you will need to pay the range fee on the day in cash.

You can supply your own ammo. Or you can buy ammo from the instructors – NB – this ammo cannot be taken home and has to be used on the range as per law. The logistical arrangements around this will be sorted with each group on their first session. 

You can work on 100 rounds per session – sometimes 150 sometimes 50 – average it out on 100 rounds per session

The program runs over 12 months – with 1 Saturday session per month as the base. (Note – in Cape Town, most sessions take place on a Sunday due to range availability.)

The first 11 sessions are just 1 Saturday (set aside the whole day for them) with a night shoot. The 12th session is a weekend starting on a Friday eve and ending on Saturday afternoon.

The Saturdays are pre-determined, and a program is handed out when you sign up, so you will have the year program in advance so that you can plan.

You can catch up on a session with another group IF there is another group nearby that does the same session. (This is not always possible in KZN and CT, so check your program. If no parallel team is running, then no catch-ups are available). You can also catch up on sessions in Gauteng if and when you visit.

Payment is made every month irrespective of whether you miss the session or not, payment is due, and you will then have to catch up on missed sessions with other groups as stated above.

Sorry Fully Booked.
