Course Overview:         
Each of the four class modules focuses on a different subject/product group presented in a half-day of lecture-based studies followed by a half-day in the field for demonstration and drills.   Unique to this class is the state-of-the-art deployment tactics which come direct from the manufacturer of the products. 

Students have the option of taking each module individually or registering for all four modules for a discounted price of $995.00.               

Upon completion of the course and successfully passing the final exam, each student is authorized to provide in-service training to their agency in specific areas for 36 calendar months from their testing date.   Students will receive links to presentation materials they may use when conducting future instruction for their department.

Prerequisites & Required Equipment:

The Defense Technology Training Academy trains only sworn law-enforcement officers, correctional personnel, state-licensed security personnel (OC only) or active military personnel.  Each attendee must be in good physical condition and able to perform the practical exercises associated with the use and tactical applications of these products.     

Required Equipment   
* Eye and ear protection  
* Body armor is required for LLIMs, CHEM and DD programs  
* Duty gear normally utilized when deploying less lethal products  
* Flame-resistant gloves  
* Gas mask  
* 37mm / 40mm Gas Launcher

Fit for Duty     

Each of the four modules in this program involve practical exercises.   Students are required to actively participate in these exercises as part of their instructor-level training.   Students should be in good physical condition for these classes in order to ensure successful completion of the courses.   Some of these courses involve exposure to chemical agents as well as the physical exercises.  

Students with physical conditions that may impair their ability to participate are responsible for contacting their physician for medical clearance prior to enrollment.   Conditions requiring such consultation include but are not limited to high blood pressure, heart problems, lung problems, to include bronchitis and asthma, or allergies.  

OC Exposure
All students in this course are exposed to OC as a requirement for their instructor training.  

Students who have undergone any type of eye surgery in the past 12 months must notify the Defense Technology Training Academy prior to enrollment in an OC course.   Typically, patients who have undergone eye surgery require approximately six months for complete recovery.   In order to provide the greatest safety margin, Defense Technology Training Academy has therefore concluded that any student who has undergone eye surgery is STRONGLY advised to delay participation in this class for a full calendar year from the date of surgery.  

Defense Technology Training Academy will not assume responsibility for any students who do not seek medical consultation prior to course participation.   Any student who is unable to participate in the exercises cannot complete this instructor level course.   It is incumbent upon the student to ensure they are physically capable of meeting the requirements of the courses.
