The Terrorism Research Center’s Mirror Image training program is a five day classroom and field training program designed to simulate terrorist recruitment, training, techniques and operational tactics. This one of a kind total immersion training program places participants into simulated terrorist cells where the participants replicate the various roles within a cell. Cells are briefed on targets and develop operational plans after conducting casing and surveillance. Each day, the participants will be taught a comprehensive program by a host of international terrorism experts. This unique program consists of hardships and long days. Starting in 2002, TRC trained thousands of military, law enforcement, intelligence officers in North Carolina, and at Ft. Huachuca, Ft. Irwin, Camp Rilea, Camp Pendleton, Camp Billy Machen, Camp Michael Monsoor, Camp Blanding, Camp Fogarty, F.E. Warren AFB, Canada, Djibouti and other locations.
Our Mirror Image programs have always been guided by two things that Sun Tzu believed. “Every battle is won before it is fought.” What one does before a critical incident is vital and if you not only know but understand the enemy one can succeed. For as Sun Tzu said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” Topics covered during Mirror Image Training include: Homegrown Terrorism, Terrorist Training, Cultural Issues and Differences, Terrorist Attacks Worldwide, Casing and Targeting Tradecraft, Casing and Surveillance Exercise, Terrorist Use of Drones in Surveillance, Propaganda and Attacks, Complex Attacks, Evolution of ISIS, Terrorist Planning, Logistics, and Finances, Martyrdom Operations, Radical Islam, Identifying a Terrorist in Your Jurisdiction, Internal Security (Terrorist OPSEC), Intelligence Processes, Ambushes, Targeted Violence, ISIS Hit Lists, Assassinations, Kidnapping and the Weapon of Beheading, Terrorist Media and Propaganda, Case Studies of Terrorist Attacks & Plots to include Orlando, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, Paris, Brussels, Ft.
