Our training team brings significant real-life experience and expertise in law enforcement to all of our classes and services. We have held a wide variety of positions including division commander, SWAT team leader, academy instructor, state-wide training coordinator, CSI investigator, detective, FTO, and PTO to name a few.
We have experience working in larger and smaller agencies, as well as for municipal agencies and sheriff's departments.
We have taught members of nearly every law enforcement agency in the state.
Training for Transfer instructors have a wide scope of experience in training law enforcement personnel in many disciplines. These include skills areas such as firearms, arrest control, and defensive tactics; also specialty topics such as sniper skills, dynamic entry tactics, use of force decisions, and street survival methods. We also have significant time as trainers in basic operations such as report writing, FTO/PTO, interviewing skills, and legal footing. Our training team has collectively written hundreds of training plans, manuals, courses, and instructional aids.
Importantly, our staff has many years of experience in providing training to fellow instructors and training unit managers. These experiences as actual trainers in law enforcement disciplines allows our staff to focus on providing fellow trainers with advanced skills that matter.
Training for Transfer instructors focus on providing training skills and techniques which efficiently and effectively address real-life issues with practical and proven techniques. Each class is designed to provide specific skills, but also allows for addressing individual issues trainers may face.
We continuously review and revise our classes to ensure that the content is up-to-date, taking into account current best practices and legal requirements. We are dedicated to creating highly interactive classes that realistically address the needs of those who are attending.
