Regular price $4,400.00 Sale

In your next audition for the part of a soldier, cop, bodyguard, Special Forces operator or just all-around bad-ass, you’ll look the part like no one else will. You’ll walk the walk, talk the talk and be able to wield weapons like a pro. Our highly qualified instructors — all military combat veterans and cinema-industry professionals — will make sure of it.

Trainers include former Commando Sergeant Paul Cale, founder of Kinetic Fighting and advisor on several films, along with Extra Specialists founder Shaun Barry, a former Infantry Lieutenant Commander turned stunt instructor and actor, and his team. All training takes place at the new High-Fidelity Training Centre inside Screen Queensland Studios, home to Extra Specialists and Kinetic Fighting (KEF Group).

Although this course is really too much fun to be called education, you’ll definitely get schooled in all the key skill sets of a tactical operator. Over three weekends of training, you’ll acquire several sought-after professional qualifications to make you a valuable asset on film sets, in theatres and beyond. After the last shot’s been fired, you’ll also be ready to seek well-paid work on the ‘Red Force’ (enemy role-player team) in scenario training exercises run by the ADF.

Run over three consecutive weekends in October, the course comprises three modules, each delivered over two 8-hour days. You can do the one/s most relevant to your needs and budget, or do the complete course to get fully qualified at a substantial discount (see below). You’ll also get some take-home footage to add to your show-reel.
