This 40-hour course is designed to provide criminal justice officers with the skills and techniques required for Police SUV Instructors.

This course will help prevent most serious accidents by covering what the best proactive and reactive skills don’t.

This class will entail high speed, stress, making mistakes, and recovering, which will all result in significantly reduced crash severity on future on-road travels.

This course will concentrate in academics and applying theory to practical exercises. Participants will create a position paper on SUV training theory. Classroom sessions will include role-playing segments and analysis of technical information. The course will also include participant creation, design and field-testing of exercises.

Course Description:

This 2-day course will address issues and strategies that have developed in learning techniques, focus, and responses to neuroscience that have identified why people do what they do. The course will identify how to determine what are the root causes of shooting shortcomings and officer survival issues. Then hopefully show how to fix them with training.

-This course will show trainers how to “diagnose shooter issues” and what may work to correct them. Included in this section will be addressing physical aptitude, the discipline of trainee and motivation

-Building off the proper focus, positive instant recognition and properly developing fundamentals of marksmanship progressively, we will use the developments we have learned in the last 20 years that adds to success and maintenance of working in the same state of heightened sensory arousal

-Basic, Advanced and in-service training are the same thing and should be frequent and have purpose, outcome and fit planned development of the shooter

-The drills should work off the basic, building or reinforcing the foundation of first and add in items like movement to cover, loading and function drills in a “clean neurological averment”

-Light or painted target with focal point (then you will see the focal point, there or not)

-Visual, auditory, kinesthetic (see, hear, do)

-Steel (rogers rangers, steel popper or plate stands)

-Dummy rounds (should be known in a magazine for both positive and negative response)

-Shot Timer
