Blue Tier Tactical was formed to offer training and consulting in modern tactics in response to today's threats. While various methods and theories exist which are relevant and sound, they must be applied properly and built upon when experience is gained.

Whether a prepared citizen, law enforcement officer, or member of the armed services, the training and education you receive should be current and in context to your needs. 

The best instructors are even better students.  We at Blue Tier strive to bring you training and education based on currently validated tactics and techniques and professional experience.
