Close Contact Defense Instructor Course Level 1
This 40-hour defensive tactics training program is taught by law enforcement for law enforcement. This close contact defense instructor course Level 1 program focuses on takedowns and law enforcement control holds. The forming of a state-of-the-art defensive tactics training program that engages your officers and is applicable for the street is never an easy task. This course provides all the necessary tools based upon years of both police and martial arts experience that have been proven to work in the field. This is not your ordinary defensive tactics program that has been used for the past 20 years in law enforcement that actually has no practical application in the current climate. This is also not an overly complicated system that will have your officers scratching their heads with frustration after the first thirty minutes of being in class. This course was meticulously put together in a well thought out format that has been used by these instructors and their students. Your officers must be prepared for what they'll face in the real world with so many of our youth having some type of exposure to mixed martial arts training.
This course also allows you to work within the confines of your physical ability, but you'll know you've earned your certification by the end of the training event. The re-certification for this course is also 40 hours but at a reduced cost of $500.00. We have a 40-hour re-certification program because we must know that you as an instructor have the continued knowledge necessary to save lives by being able to demonstrate this valuable information with your officers. You represent us as an instructor when you attend one of our instructor programs and our reputation in the industry is of the highest quality, which is shared in our student reviews. You won't be disappointed in the training you receive after attending this course or any of our other courses. We look forward to seeing you and your training staff at our next upcoming event. The space for this course is limited and will fill up fast!
Teaching methodologies and policy recommendations
The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 15-day prior notice from the course start date when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend will be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than a 15-day notice will cause a department credit that can be used towards another future training event within one year from the original course date. We will charge no-shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been made. We offer a one-year future course credit as well for any no show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of June 23, 2021, and you as a representative of your agency agree to abide by this policy by registering for any course. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this cancellation policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, and we base our travel cost including instructor pay on registration fees. This policy is considered a binding contract between BSTS LLC and the student or student agency or company.
