Established by Col. Sharon Gat (Res) in 2002, Caliber 3 is the leading counter-terror and security academy in Israel.

We specializes in the construction and training of rapid response/SWAT teams with an emphasis on inter-agency operability and careful analysis of the security assets, location, and threats faced, in order to provide maximum security.
Caliber 3 focuses on functional combat training in order to enhance the skill level of security professionals. The instructors at Caliber 3 are all soldiers in Special Forces units and continue to serve actively in the IDF reserves, which makes the cutting-edge training at Caliber 3 thoroughly combat-tested in real world scenarios.

Caliber 3 works in close cooperation with a variety of forces in the Israeli security establishment to develop and train for potential terror attacks in high-density civilian areas such as schools, kindergartens, shopping centers, and major public institutions.
