The story behind Polar Light Training

The first decade of the twenty-first century was the blossom of Internet and information technology. Military and law enforcement operation advanced rapidly with the process of global war on terrorism. There happened to be a chance for us to access to some international MIL/LE training as well as the latest information. February 2, 2007, Polar Light Training was officially established and it was the very first time for Taiwanese to cooperate with US civilian-owned MIL/LE training organizations. 
Since establishment, PLTG has been working with various international training organizations. PLTG is honored to join some exercises from Original SWAT World Challenge in 2007 to Urban Shield in 2015. PLTG introduced IDPA to Taiwan in 2015 and has become the most seasoned civilian-based MIL/LE training service in Taiwan.
