NCT PRO Challenge is a full week training event focused on EOD, Special Forces and CBRNe scenarios taking place at a military or civil training facility. Like NCT PRO eXperience, NCT PRO Challenge provides teams the opportunity to train on different scenarios with the latest equipment provided by industry. Training is provided by experienced EOD, CBRNe and SOF professionals. 

NCT PRO Challenge is more “rough on the edges” and meant for operators without a fancy conference: hands-on training, experiencing scenarios and equipment instead of learning from PowerPoint is key to NCT PRO Challenge. When the teams don’t train, NCT takes them for the NCT PRO Challenge Tech Tour visiting all the sponsoring companies.

Each training session ends with a debriefing during which you will be provided with direct feedback on your equipment and products with the aim of assessing it against the end user’s mission’s needs. As such, NCT Pro Challenge enables you to learn from the experience of the teams and exchange lessons learned and best practices which might be able to provide you with insights for both sales and further R&D. 

The five day event ends with a NCT Dinner for senior leaders and main sponsors on the Thursday, followed by a final day of demonstration for these senior leaders and the NCT PRO BBQ on the last evening for all operators and sponsors. Showcase your equipment and product’s capabilities and join us in NCT PRO Challenge!
