This is the next series in our Ground Control Instructor curriculum that focuses on being able to control a suspect as a team or individual officer until backup arrives. Many of these techniques and concepts branch off of our first series and are essential for any agency looking to improve its overall program. The techniques from this course work on the street and have been pressure tested with a higher percentage of probability. We teach our award-winning teaching methods in this course that will improve you overall as an instructor. We also provide support by email and phone, which is not the case with other training companies. Our trainers have a background both in martial arts and a vast career in law enforcement that allows them to combine the best of both worlds into the program. You’ll learn various simple takedowns and control positions that will give you a format to teach from that isn’t overly complicated with jargon or acronyms that you have to memorize. We focus not only on techniques but on how to interact with your officers and your administration to streamline your program with a balanced and well-thought-out approach. You’ll receive an illustrated instruction manual when you attend this course that will make it easier for you to teach once you achieve your instructor certification. We at Blue Shield Tactical hold our trainers and our students to a higher standard with what is being presented and how it is taught to their departments. We give our very best when we’re teaching and focus on improving you as an instructor. Our goal is to see you succeed and save lives through the information you provide. We look forward to seeing you and your staff at our next training event, but we suggest you read our unfiltered student reviews if you have any doubts. We do not require you to have attended our first Ground Control Series to attend this program. Contact us today to host this course and others at your facility.

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.

I recently have taken the class and it gives a lot of good insight! There are a lot of things learned where you can use in real life, and most of us know, that it can be life and death and the street! The lesson was easy to learn and to grow! It taught me how to be better for not only myself, but for my other officers I work with and for.

It was excellent training and I would recommend it to anyone or agency that is in need of ground control training. I have found that it is easy to pick up and learn.

This course is a must have for you’re department. All the ground techniques demonstrated are easy to understand, easily flow into one another, and the teaching strategies provided are very useful.
Ray does a great job of breaking things down and connecting the techniques. The techniques are simple and easy to teach with his methods to even those with little experience.

This class is a must have for your department. The instructor, Ray, is one of the best instructors for law enforcement I have ever been around. He is not only a great instructor with great content but he is also great at teaching his students HOW to instruct. I 10/10 recommend!
