Maritime Tactical Operations Training Program (MTOTP)Up one level
The Maritime Tactical Operations Training Program (MTOTP) is a 4 1/2 day training session involving extensive hands-on instruction pertaining to tactical boarding procedures aboard High Interest/High Threat Vessels (HIV/HTV). During the Laboratory and Practical Exercise phase, students conduct several underway “HIV-Low-Freeboard” tactical boarding operations utilizing a 65’ motor vessel. Students conduct “High-Freeboard” boarding operations on several static boat platforms and conduct several High-Freeboard “Hook and Climb Insertion” techniques on a 494 foot long “break-bulk” freighter. This is a physically demanding course; participants should be in good physical condition prior to attending.
