The best initial concepts to teach a beginner?

Basic firearm handling, first. Yeah, I don't care many paint wars or airsoft battles that you've been in, handling a REAL, loaded firearm is a brand new ballgame.

So I take it when it comes to room clearance you're always thinking safety first... :)

Absolutely! Risk to operators needs to be mitigated as much as possible. That's why we don't do raids naked. :oops:

What about in terms of C.Q.B. - specifically around room entry - the approach, entry and exit processes? What kind of ground concepts are you covering?

Good beginner concepts are generally fundamentals that can be applied to many things across the board. For CQB a good beginner concept would be angular clearing as it will be applicable to most CQB problems; rooms, hallways and stairs.

Would you advocate that more towards individuals or the team as a whole?

This should be taught as an individual skill first then once mastered at the individual level move on to applying it to team tactical problems.

Lots of strong training on shooting, moving and communicating, all at the same time. So many people when they get into their "zone", just stop talking. You HAVE to be communicating throughout any movement into and through a structure.
