This five-day course covers all aspects of Reality Based Training. Instructed by Kenneth Murray, the original co-founder of SIMUNITION® and author of the critically acclaimed book Training at the Speed of Life – the Definitive Textbook for Police and Military Reality Based Training, this class provides instructors with a highly advanced template for running any type of Reality Based Training independent of the technologies being used.


Participants in this class receive five days of both theory and hands on experiential learning in setting up safe and effective training programs involving the various types of Reality Based Training modalities. Those who have attended in the past have gone on to create training programs that have significantly reduced training costs while improving the quality AND quantity of training within their agencies. It also addresses many of the issues that agencies are facing these days within the various aspects of encounters with members of their communities. The Training at the Speed of Life class teaches participants functional use of setting up training
programs that are directed more towards the needs of the individual officer as opposed to the assembly line approach that fails to address specific training needs of each officer. The Seven Survivals model explains that any training program must transcend many of the typical training methodologies, and teach participants how to set up experiential exercises that will help to ensure that encounters address optimized performance Physicially, Legally (both criminal and civil), Socially, Professionally, Psychologically/Emotionally, Spiritually/Ethically, and Financially. Failure in any one of these critical areas can prove catastrophic personally, organizationally and societetally. This program teaches trainers to ensure any scenario based training is performed and facilitated to a conclusion that is "six o'clock news ready", meaning that if the scenario had been and actual situation, that the video of that event would be the one the agency and the community they serve would be proud to see it replayed on television or in a court of law.
