We would like to introduce AP Tac:
Alex Pineschi, former Italian Army veteran, started his specialized professional path in the United States where he worked together with the most important and well-known military and law enforcement instructors in the business. In 2009, he started his private company, AP TAC, aiming to develop a sound study program on operational procedures regarding firearms handling with the goal of adopting an innova1ve teaching method focused on providing the highest standards in the business.
In 2011, Alex began to operate in the anti-piracy field as a private security contractor in high-risk zones in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Through the experience gathered, in 2014 he founded one of the first companies in that field with the aim of providing highly specialized training based on international standards.
When in 2014 ISIS was beginning to be noticed as a worldwide threat, Alex observed with growing interest the evolution of the conflict until November 2014, when he opted for direct action and left for Kurdistan to join the Peshmerga fighters as a volunteer against the jihadist militia. In March 2015, he was given the responsibility by Kurdish authorities to manage and support the creation of a new Special Operations Force (SOF) unit. As such, Alex became one of the founders of an elite Military Police unit of Peshmerga fighters, named Task Force Black, which shortly was about to write one of the most important chapters of the story of the war against ISIS.
Even though his duties were primarily centered on the training of the operators of Task Force Black, Alex volunteered to take part in all of the operations that his unit carried out during the difficult offensive to free the Kirkuk area from the occupation of the ISIS extremists. Due to his activity as an operator in the field of combat and his former experience in the military training business, Alex start to collaborate in the Erbil Training Center; the most important training organiza1on recognized by the Government of Kurdistan Region and a center of excellence that covers a wide range of operations in the field of training for both governmental units and private security companies.
Alongside his duties in the field of professional training, Alex continues to serve with Task Force Black on the front lines in the fight against terrorism. Motivated by a strong dedication to the profession he loves, he continues to pursue additional direct experience in field operations. This experience represents a crucial means for his research to translate into increasingly valuable training that reflects the latest trends and tactics on the battlefield.
The AP TAC training is not a simple, short training course, but a downright “system” characterised by a set of procedures to be learned step by step, followed by our professional training staff. First of all, the primary purpose of our lessons is the acquisition of the safest possible handling of our personal weapons. Rather than merely relying on confidence, it should be based on an in-depth knowledge of the weapon. At a later stage, the course focuses on the principles of instinct, and then each of the procedures that are essential to speed up the weapon handling process are progressively introduced, in order to allow the operator to be fit for a dynamic, operational environment.
Why train with AP Tac:
The procedures from AP TAC are devised on a concrete basis and based on REAL concepts and developed by our instructor’s REAL ground experience in the war against terror, and law enforcement operations. AP TAC is a training provider that has hundreds of training sessions to its name, every course does not follow a specific format, but rather models itself around the class, optimizing each student’s time and resources. The courses and the seminars organized by AP TAC are open to all professionals in accordance with the highest international standard.
