Certification length: 2 Years

Upon successful completion of this course students will be provided  a certificate of completion certifying them in the use of Chain, Hinged, Rigid and Disposable (Tri-Fold or 'flex' cuffs) handcuffs.


Course Outline: Proper training in the use of handcuffs is extremely vital to Law Enforcement and Security officers. Handcuffs are among the most often tools used by officers, yet training is severely lacking. Studies show that over 67% of resistance by subjects occur AFTER the first handcuff has been applied. All too often the result is injury and/or death to either the officer or subject. The techniques we present are both practical and effective. Topics to be covered include the safest approach and positioning for handcuffing, handcuffing resistive subjects, removing handcuffs, and the use of various types of handcuffs.


The curriculum also includes:


* Lawful use of force

* Physical force in making an arrest

* Submission of combative persons

* Use of force with 3rd parties

* Restraint types

* Application of restraints

* Monitoring of restrained persons

* Transportation of restrained persons

Due to the serious nature of these courses, we reserve the right to refuse training to anyone.
