ITS Muster: Skill-Set Development Excursion

Registration for Muster 007 is now closed.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to attend our 7th Annual ITS Muster and Skill-Set Development Excursion. Exact details of the training and missions taking place during the event are closely guarded and won’t be released publicly.

With a departure from our usual outdoor-themed training events, this year’s Muster will exploit legacy tradecraft techniques and teach you how to become a harder target.

While many event details are vague, what we will share is that you’ll be heavily involved in a HUMINT operation, learning how surveillance functions and how to beat it. This includes both static and mobile surveillance. There will also be comprehensive information on hotel security, credential verification and social engineering.

In addition to the skills we’ve outlined above, you’ll also be engaged in competitions between cells and plenty of field training exercises to ensure everyone is paying attention. Remember, it pays to be a winner!

Muster 007

While Muster won’t be a physically demanding event, you may encounter longer periods of walking in an urban environment, so your level of fitness should allow for this. You’re going to get dirty, you’re going to be tired, but you’ll leave with more knowledge than you came with, great memories and friendships forged.

You’ll receive a Muster 007 Morale Patch on completion of the event and a few other goodies we have planned for you to take home.

Instructor Information

Training this year will be led by ITS Staff and include key instruction by Matt Fiddler of SerePick and Nick Hays of Elite Team Performance.

SerePick specializes in urban security & evasion tools and training, led by Matt Fiddler, who has been instructing at every ITS Muster.
