A course for trainers and agency leaders looking for new and effective approaches to police in-service training.

"That's the way we've always done it" isn't good enough anymore, especially when your officers are facing unprecedented scrutiny and legal exposure. We believe the way your department conducts in-service training for officers should be effective, but when was the last time you took a hard look at how that training is conducted?

Join us as we explore the issues with conventional in-service training and why it isn't truly preparing officers to perform in the field. We'll examine the contemporary methods that some progressive agencies are using to train their staff and the success they are seeing. You'll walk away with simple tools you can use to improve your department's in-service training.

Curriculum Includes:

  • How to create realistic scenario-based training that will lead to improved performance in the field
  • Teaching adaptability, sense-making, problem solving, and decision-making instead of just teaching techniques
  • Interleaving diverse topics such as firearms, defensive tactics, legal update and more to create holistic training that works
  • A step-by-step walkthrough and videos showing how the instructors used these methods in their agency

Learn how to increase the effectiveness of your department training. The instructors will share the techniques they used to create training that works.

Kyle Cardin
Scott Savage

Kyle Cardin is the Training Unit Sergeant with a medium-sized Northern California police agency. Scott Savage recently retired from the same department. Both worked together to revamp their agency’s in-service training program. The result was dramatic! In-service training became a place of real learning resulting in officers who were all “on the same page” in the field. The training produced officers who were skilled at sense-making, decision-making, use of force law and more. Kyle and Scott are excited to share this information with you so you can do the same at your agency.
