2.3.20 SUV Instructor Course 40 hours (Region 15)

SUV Instructor Course

Course Description

Program: Advanced/Specialized Training (Region 15)

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

Most experienced drivers have learned proactive skills through trial and error, or common sense. Untrained drivers operate under instinct; the problem is that every instinctive action a driver takes is the opposite of what would work within the laws of physics. 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.

This course is open to Public safety personnel.
