Ellis, Eric
Instructor Development for Active Shooter Training

This instructor development course will review current trends in active shooter incidents nationwide and discuss the lessons learned and how they should shape our training moving forward. A review of active shooter protocol will be conducted and adjustments for these policies based on the trends will be discussed. This includes TCCC and its integration into training, along with the Rescue Task Force model. Scenario development will be discussed in detail to allow instructors to better teach and challenge their officers. This course is designed for officers who have previously been involved with active shooter instruction at their departments.
