COURSE OVERALL LEARNING GOAL:

This course is geared towards new or existing use of force instructors. Attending officers will be certified in baton (expandable or straight), OC Spray, and handcuffing, as well as soft empty hand techniques.

The foundation of an effective defensive tactics program is solid curriculum and competent instructors. Our comprehensive system utilizes modern training methodologies and fundamental, easy to learn techniques. Officers attending this course will learn the most proven, essential, and innovative procedures for arrest and control.

 

Regardless of existing skill level, officers will become proficient in the application of effective force and enhance their abilities to react to all levels of subject resistance. This training will provide considerations for all typical force option tools to include Taser, ASP baton, and less lethal force platforms. The core elements taught in this course such as leverage, body position, and timing are compatible with all other defensive tactics and use of force related systems. But, learning to efficiently gain control of resistant and assaultive subjects is only part of the process.

 

This course will also focus on building effective communicators, trainers and mentors of law enforcement professionals. Conventional methods of instruction have been shown to produce a 20% rate of retention. Our innovative, student focused training methods, result in a retention rate of up to 80%. This program maximizes information transfer from the classroom to real world application for trainers and the professionals they teach. Finally, this course will provide a robust curriculum that can be tailored to individual and organizational needs and fielded in virtually any law enforcement, security, or similar organization.

 

Course objectives include but are not limited to:

  • Enhance subject compliance with the use of verbal de-escalation and soft-empty hand techniques
  • Appropriately react to an assaultive subject at close quarters
  • Develop skills in handcuffing and controlling resistant subjects
  • Perform multiple-officer and single-officer takedowns on resistant subjects
  • Incorporate force tools and how to transition to the most effective force options
  • Enhance your organization’s existing training through the utilization of student centered, adult learning principles

The foundation of this course is built on empty-hand control techniques while integrating a holistic approach to the use of all force options. The principles taught in this course are not only easy to learn and effective, but also compliment tactics officers may already be using. An attack cannot always be avoided, so don’t rely solely on situational awareness or unrealistic technique to stay safe on the streets.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT

  • BDU style pants
  • Duty belt

  • Mouth guard

 

COST: $799.00 per Officer for the 5-day Instructor Course
