Updates to the Online Training Programs

February 9, 2015 in Training

When we launched the flagship version of our Tactical Analysis online program nearly a year and a half ago, we decided to begin offering our courses online for two reasons. The first was to meet the needs of one of our best clients who were looking for a way to scale our in-person course to their workforce that was distributed throughout the country. The second reason was to fulfill one of the initial goals that I had when I started The CP Journal. In an article that I posted when we first launched the online program, titled “Remembering The Trigger,” I talked about the fact that the Combat Hunter Program was only training about 40 out of every 1,000 deploying Marines during my time as an instructor and how that fact never sat well with me. It wasn’t right that Marines who were deploying were getting turned away from the information that was saving lives because there were only a limited number of instructors available to teach them the material. When we made the Tactical Analysis program available online, we wanted to ensure that anyone who wanted to learn could do so on their own because no Marine or soldier, no police officer, and no security professional should have to be put into harm’s way without having access to learning what is needed to get left of bang.

Over the last eighteen months, we have made countless improvements to our “Basic Program” based on the feedback we have received from each and every user who has completed the course. However, about three months ago, it became clear to us that simply making improvements to the existing course was no longer the best way to deliver learning and value to our clients, so we began looking at what would be needed to overhaul the program and release a completely new and updated class. As of last Friday, we are happy to announce that the recording of the new version for our “Basic Course” is complete. Here is what you can expect to see happen in approximately two weeks and over the next couple of months:  Continue reading »

Training Opportunity: February 26, 2015 in Chicago

February 5, 2015 in Training

We are excited to be partnering with the Illinois Tactical Officers Association and the Cook Country Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to offer a one-day course on Tactical Analysis and Threat Recognition in February. For those that are eligible to attend, we have included some of information needed to register and an overview of what the class will cover.

Our programs provide officers with a framework for assessing the environment and the people around them, give them a rationale for why they do and don’t make certain decisions, and lends overall support for the process that officers must use to help keep people safe. Taught in the context of preventing officer ambushes, the course discusses the observations to recognize threats and the language to articulate the reasons why a person attracted your attention.

More details on this upcoming course and more information on the work we continue to do with law enforcement can be found below.

A huge thank you continues to go out to the law enforcement community for the work that they do and for supporting our programs.
