We are proud to announce that we are opening a new section of the site today called The Academy. We began the process of testing our new Tactical Analysis Basic Courses a couple of weeks ago and, with the final changes recently made, they are now available to the public. Here is a summary of the updates:

All-New Basic Programs

The Tactical Analysis Basic Course that is available online through The CP Journal Academy is a new version of our previously offered online course. We have re-recorded all of the modules in the class and have created unique iterations of the course for members of the military, police officers, security professionals and those looking to ensure school safety. Each video has been shortened in length to a maximum of approximately fifteen minutes, we have improved the quality of the audio in the videos and we have increased the amount of animation in each video. While we have made a number of improvements to the content of the course, many of the changes we made went towards the goal of improving the aesthetics and experience for our students as they progress through the course.

If you would like to sample any of The CP Journal’s courses, you can view the first two modules for free when you view the class inside the pages of the Academy. For those of you looking for information on our Advanced Program, we are in the process of recording those classes as we speak and hope to have them available to you soon.

The Academy Platform

Along with the re-releasing of our Basic Course, we have also made the decision to move The CP Journal’s courses to a new section of the site, The Academy. Our goal in this transition is to make it easier for our online students to find the Tactical Analysis course that best meets their needs, to be able to pause and resume training throughout the course and to have the ability to track personal progress. While the Academy will allow for a greater degree of customization for students in the future, the move to this new platform sets the foundation we need to tailor each class to the needs of the individual student. This structure also will allow The CP Journal to offer a greater number of courses in the future all from one centralized location. You can view the Academy by following the link or from the option in the menu-bar.

The Training Center

With the opening of the Academy, we are no longer offering access to the Training Center for our students. The Training Center was originally designed to provide follow-on training and practice to our students following their completion of a course. The new courses offered in the Academy will offer opportunities to embed additional practice videos and exercises in the associated courses as they are continuously developed and enhanced. We apologize to any Training Center subscribers who will be affected by this decision and, if you would like to talk to us about it, please contact us right away. We believe that the Academy will offer our students the absolute best opportunity to master the behaviors taught in each of our courses.

The Book Quiz

If you read Left of Bang: How the Marine Corps’ Combat Hunter Program Can Save Your Life, you can now additionally take a quiz to test your ability to apply the lessons taught in the book to your professional role. After completion of the quiz, you can compare your score to the other users who have taken the quiz on the quiz leaderboard.

We are excited to announce these improvements to The CP Journal’s online training programs, and we’d like to thank all of you who have trusted us enough to train with us. Your feedback has been instrumental in making these changes. We haven’t forgotten that and we certainly don’t underappreciate it. If you have any questions about the new programs or want to ask about bulk pricing, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

To view all of the changes we have made, both now and in the future, you can find them in our change-log.
