We’ve found that almost every officer in an agency will carry an edged tool at some point in their career, but you’ll soon discover that most have had no training when it comes to the use of this tool, which is the reason this high demand course was created. Most officers couldn’t tell you why they selected the knife they currently carry or where to carry the knife on their bodies. The knife is great for getting someone off of you where you can’t access your firearm, or the situation is too close to attempt to access a firearm. This 2-day (16 hour) course was developed specifically for law enforcement officers, and the primary purpose of this training is to educate officers on the tactical folder as a tool and as a weapon for defense. The training will also cover the fundamentals necessary for surviving an edged weapon attack and for using a knife in a deadly force encounter to stop an immediate lethal threat when no other force options are available. Due to the depth of information regarding knives and their use, this course will focus mainly on tactical folders for law enforcement EDC. You won’t find another course currently on the market that offers this kind of training to law enforcement by law enforcement instructors. This course will fill up quickly due to the high demand for this type of training!

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.
