For example, if a road officer arrives for tactical training without any type of tac vest or equipment is unacceptable and undermines the training being conducted. This also includes gear for inclement weather, a method of hydration, etc…
The instructors take the time to guide, mentor and explain the material effectively. They also take the time to analyze and inform the shortcomings of students then make corrections to improve the overall performance of the student. Each student is evaluated and performance increased.
The instructors currently serve their agencies; therefore, we continuously update and improve the programs based on their personal experiences. We strive to improve the curriculum continuously based on these experiences.
