PPCT Defensive Tactics/HFRG Instructor Recertification Seminar - Columbia


Assaults against on-duty law enforcement officers have steadily increased, and every officer is faced with the prospect of being seriously assaulted. Because of this ever-present threat, all law enforcement officers need a valid, defensible system for controlling hostile subjects and, at the same time, protecting themselves against assault. A copy of your prior instructor certification must be faxed or mailed to LETI before your registration will be complete. In this seminar, you’ll be recertified as an instructor in the Pressure Point Control Tactics (PPCT) Defensive Tactics System, which has been recognized as the world’s leading nonlethal subject control system. 

Topics will include the following:

  •  Analyzing use of force 
  •  Control concepts 
  •  Pressure point control 
  •  Impact weapon systems 
  •  Active countermeasures 
  •  Other defensive tactics disciplines 

Bring handcuffs with keys and duty leather. Dress in comfortable clothing that is suitable for intense physical exercises.
