Instructor Development Seminar

August 21, 2024 | San Mateo, CA

8am – 5pm


Let’s face it: teaching cops can be a challenge. Cops can be a tough audience and when your teaching cops from your own agency it’s even more difficult. Did you know there are some simple things you can do that will automatically command their attention? It’s true. It’s also true that there are some things you should NEVER say and do when you are teaching because they are guaranteed to destroy rapport and sink the whole presentation!

At the Savage Training Group, we take teaching very seriously. Our instructors are constantly learning and perfecting their craft. Now we would like to share some of our best practices with you and help make you a better teacher.

This presentation is perfect for any law enforcement officer who is an instructor regardless or the topic. Whether you teach in a classroom or just give small lectures to your students before range day, this seminar is for you.

Curriculum Includes:

  • How to open your class and what to NEVER say!
  • How to command the attention of your students
  • How to avoid “Death by Power Point” when you have to use Power Point

  • How to use group work and exercises that actually work
