About company

In the Year 2012 Zdenek Charvat left the service of the Police of the Czech Republic and started a career as a security contractor in Iraq. Since he had spent all of his professional as well as private life  shooting and conducting tactical training of colleagues and friends, when he was a contractor, he started to miss this activity very quickly. At the end of 2012 he obtained a shooting training license and during 2013 during his leave from Iraq, which he spent at home in the Czech Republic, together with Milos Müller held shooting courses focused on pistol and rifle weapon handling. The number of clients increased and it became difficult to satisfy all of them due to the limited length of holiday between rotations in Iraq. At the turn of 2013 and 2014 together with new website, the name and logo of Hard Task company was created. Since that time all shooting, tactical and medical courses continued to develop to current, modern concepts. Milos and Zdenek were working full time in Iraq but due to overwhelming demand for courses and training we decided to finish our deployment, come back to CZ and devote our total efforts to Hard Task full time. Both decided to end their careers in Iraq after 4 years and began to devote themselves fully to training. The reward was an incredible 1078 students who had passed their courses that year. The following season Hard Task realized the opportunity of its own facilities in the form of a beautiful, spacious outdoor commercial shooting range, which thanks to newly added fellow instructors reached even the incredible number of 2000 students. Our company trains thousands of students from many countries around the world annually. In the years 2020/2019/2018 over 7570 trainees visited Hard Task courses. Becoming the market leader of providers of this type of training in the Czech Republic and as well as one of the most respected training companies in Europe and the World. The diligence and professionalism of the entire team of instructors resulted in Hard Task travelling to the United Arab Emirates where it has the honor to train, prepare and constantly maintain in shooting, tactical and medical training it‘s military and protection team operators. According to the owner of the company, Zdenek Charvat, the key to success is a high-quality team of well-selected professional instructors, who teach only those topics in which they are regarded as leaders in the field.

Questions and Answers

I ordered a course that I paid at that time. Can I count on my participation 100%? After paying your order you will receive a confirmation message at the email address provided. From that point on you can count with your course attandance for 100%. If I have a question about the course, the venue or if I need to apologize for the delay, who should I contact best? About a month before each of the course dates we assign instructors to lead the specific courses. You can find both their phone number and email address on their website profile. Use them for your questions at any time. I would like to sign up for a shooting course, but I do not have a gun license or gun.  Is this a problem? Czech laws will not restrict your participation in the course if you do not have a gun or a gun license. In this case, just like everyone else, you shoot under the supervision of an experienced instructor. So you can shoot even if you do not hold a gun license. Furthermore, we are able to provide you, for an additional charge, a weapon and ammunition. I would like to join some of the courses, but I do not know whether or not my lack of knowledge will be a problem or will hinder the other students.  I am only a beginner. Courses are classified into three categories, called TIER. Each course has different demands and requirements and are for certain ability levels. You can read more in the link “ABOUT” and then click on ‘Course tiers’. Can I start with Tier 2 or Tier 3 directly? I took many courses around the World. I have been shooting for twenty years. You need to go through our courses level by level. From one to the top four. It is not possible to start with two or three. How do I register the course? It is important to register on our website. It is very simple and fast. The moment you are registered, you can login at any time to the site, and then you just select the course you’d like to participate in. Look for any of the listed dates to confirm the course. The registration information you want from me includes date of birth and phone number.  Why do you need this information? Date of birth is required for proper and correct certification of your course completion. Date of birth is an integral part of the certificate and provides for a true and original course certification. Phone number is used in the event that we need to contact you for any reason, and are unable to contact you via e-mail. In the event that my employer will want to verify the authenticity of the certificate, it is possible to contact you? Yes. On each certificate you will find a unique serial number and contact information, in which it is possible to verify authenticity.  You will also be provided with official & direct contact information of our foreign instructors How do I pay for the course and when?  Will I receive a receipt and/or invoice? In each course description you will see the price for the course which needs to be paid no later than 14 days after the course order to secure your place in the course date. The course fee isnon-refundable in cause you cancel the attandance less than week before the date. After each payment is done you get PDF file invoice placed in your website profile. On the photos from your courses I see very high quality tactical and well equipped participants. Do I need to be similarly equipped?  We are able to lend you most of the equipment free of charge and many courses can only be done with your basic equipment and clothing. No need to buy anything. It is often a rule that it is better to go to the course "light/Low profile" and just there to learn from the instructors and other students what equipment to buy subsequently. I am a woman and I would like to join your shooting courses. Can I do it among the men? Although there are not many women in the Czech shooting community, they often come to us to learn in shooting and tactics. There's nothing to worry about even a course full of gentlemen.
