Katmai Live Training
Katmai’s Live Training Division provides role player and live immersion training support services for the Department of Defense.
To date, Katmai has performed over 730 separate pre-deployment training missions in service of the United States Marine Corps, Army, and Navy units at locations throughout CONUS and OCONUS – each support mission featuring custom-designed tactical and cultural scenarios which immerse the unit customer in a realistic training environment which includes indoor and outdoor training facilities.
Katmai provides all facets of role player training support services, including recruitment and training of role players (e.g. Civilians on the Battlefield, Opposing Forces, Foreign Language Speakers, etc.), provision of meals and billeting, development of custom training packages, training scheduling and schedule de-confliction, injury simulation / moulage, set design, foreign weapons instruction, atmospherics, and battlefield effects simulations. Our goal in providing such services is to ensure that each warfighter transitions from the training environment to his/her duty location with a clear sense of how to respond in safe, tactically-effective, and culturally-appropriate ways to the civilian and non-civilian groups that are encountered.
Our project managers, mission managers, subject matter experts and lane controllers all come from a strong military background and all understand the unique support requirements needed to address training in austere locations and training that involves last-minute workload shifts and surges.
