WHAT NEXT

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. Ensure that you are setup on WhatsApp to be added to a WA group, as we will correspond all detail on said Whatsapp Group. (note that the group will be set up about 3 weeks from kick off date)

WHAT TO BRING

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

Bring your handgun, magazines, ammo, eye and ear protection, a proper holster and a proper belt. Ensure you can do a basic fitness test – 2.4km run, push-ups, pullups, situps etc.

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. You will also need to own your own, licensed handgun.

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

Training is done on Saturdays, except for the final SERE session which starts on a Friday eve at 18h00 and runs to the Saturday eve.

The first 11 sessions are just 1 day (set aside the whole day for them) and 1 module is a night shoot. The 12th session is a night/day session and culminates the course.

For logistical reasons and range safety, we urge you to please stick to the year program. The dates are given in advance (all 12 sessions) so you can plan your calendar in advance. We do however understand that life happens and that you may miss a session. You will then need to check the calendar to see when that session is repeated with another group and see if you can slot into that time slot. Then make arrangements with our admin team to ensure you are added to that module. The onus rests on you to sort this out, as you know your own calendar. If you have not completed all the modules by the 12th module, you will not receive the LO patch and certificate of completion of level 1.  You will then have to catch up all missed sessions before receiving patch and certificate. 

Note that you pay 12 months, irrespective if you miss a session. You then need to arrange the catch up, but as specified, we prefer that you arrange your calendar accordingly.
