Virtual Clearance Training Suite

Virtual Clearance Training Suite (VCTS)

The Virtual Clearance Training Suite (VCTS) is to provide individual and collective training for Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) missions to Route Clearance Units in a virtual environment. The individual / crew training curriculum consists of 40 hours of basic and advanced route clearance training scenarios. With a wide variety of environmental conditions and virtually any type of terrain imaginable the VCTS system will provide route clearance company soldiers with experience in any situation they are likely to encounter. Training conducted at the VCTS is route clearance, convoy operations, and stabilized gunnery.


All training and certification is scheduled through RFMSS <--click here


The VCTS requires a certified operator and the unit will not be allowed to run the VCTS without their operator present. The unit has two hours from scheduled start time to occupy the trainer. After that time the trainer is available to other units. The max number of personnel we can train in a single 8-hr work-day is approximately 24.


Operators must be in the rank of E5 or above. The maximum class size is 10, the minimum is 3.
