Course Overview

This 3-day, highly dynamic course is like no other. It relies heavily on practical hands-on applications and is intended for first responders who want instruction in the proper uses of OC aerosol projectors as well as personal weapons such as hands, elbows, knees and feet used for self-defense and subject control.

Combining the proven effectiveness of the Defense Technology® OC Aerosol Projectors program and the Monadnock Defensive Tactics System (MDTS) Instructor-level courses, this course offers first responders the skills, information and preparation to meet the challenges of the job.

Taught by leading experts who have real-world experience in both psychomotor skill programs and field applications, this course will provide the student with necessary information to return to his/her agency and, as that agency’s instructor, develop and conduct a program that satisfies operational needs in the area of OC and defensive tactics.

Monadnock® is a widely respected and internationally known name in law-enforcement education. Through the former Monadnock® Police Training Council, standards and procedures are structured to meet contemporary legal challenges. The defensive techniques taught in this course can be quickly mastered and performed under stress, including the baton-aided, subject-control holds called armlocks. The curricula is fully researched in terms of tactical, medical and legal consequences and supported by the Safariland Training Group.
