Sessions are held at venues in the PTA / JHB region.

WHAT TO BRING

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)

WHAT TO LEAVE

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 (not for Expendables). You will also need to own your own, licensed handgun.

LASTLY – RSVP

this just so we know how much TP to put into the toilets. By completing the form it counts as your RSVP.

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 MUST HAVE

  • your own licensed handgun,
  • 3 x magazines
  • 1 x proper decent holster.

If you do have a plate carrier/vest, bring that along. You also have the option to buy the Geardo plate carrier at a discounted rate through us. You can also buy an ifak from us on the course. Then you will need the normal eyes, ears, hat, sunscreen and range clothing. That means closed shoes. You are responsible for your own food and drink during sessions. It is important to stay hydrated.

The course will cost you R850 pm for 12 months (6 months for Expendables). Included in this fee is the main session’s range fee. You also get 1 year Fortis Club Membership worth R350, a Lone Operator cap and access to some of Fortis’ online courses. But most of all you have free access to other sessions/modules/courses – for free. If you feel like doing a different session in the same month, you can join that for free, only pay the range fee on the day.

Included in this fee is the following

1. Range fees for the Lone Operator program (1 session per month)
2. Access to other modules of the program – *excluding other sessions range fees
3. Lone Operator Cap
4. 1 year Fortis Membership which gives you a discount from selected vendors – see the full range here

1. Travelling to and from venues used for training
2. Ammunition needed for training
3. Range fees for courses outside the normal program

5. Food and drinks

Every session starts off with PT (Physical Exercise) and for these, you can wear PT clothing (not Expendables). Thereafter you change into range clothes. Pants, shirt, closed shoes. Remember we are shooting from different 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, or you can buy from us. 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 must supply your own ammo. As a Fortis Member, you can check with our vendors for specials. Or you can buy ammo from some of the instructors – NB – this ammo cannot be taken home and has to be used on the range as per law.

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