I did the SVT class with my fiancÃ©e in Austin several years ago. This is an excellent class for anyone with a CHL, and especially useful for our loved ones who do not yet carry. Street & Vehicle Tactics is not a shooting class. Gun handling and marksmanship skills are Good Things (and Insights offers a number of classes with plenty of trigger time) but the focus of this class is how to avoid the need to pull the trigger. This is what makes it such a wonderful class to take with a spouse or adult child who isn't a shooter, and who doesn't want to spend 10 hours a day on a shooting range. It's about mindset and mental skills to help them stay safe and -- who knows? -- perhaps even get them thinking about carrying.This course deals with self defense while at work, in your automobile, when traveling, and while in public settings (restaurants, shopping, theaters, etc.). The course deals with awareness of how street crimes are committed, spotting and avoiding common crimes, the tactics that prevent confrontations (verbal skills, body language, tactical positioning, and minimizing target indicators) and with those necessary to win if it comes to physical violence (use of cover, maneuver, knowledge of danger areas).
Street & Vehicle Tactics also includes tactics related to the use of force. For example, when I took it we did force on force scenarios with sims, although I think they may use airsoft these days. Finally, the course covers a number of "after action" issues, both short term and longer in scope.
