Monadnock Announces The 27th International Training Seminar

January 12, 2007
Fitzwilliam, NH

Monadnock Police Training Council has scheduled its 27th Annual International Training Seminar in Lowell, MA May 6-11, 2007.

Attendees will have the option of gaining certification as an Instructor or Instructor-Trainer in Monadnock® Expandable Batons (MEB), the PR-24® Baton, or the Monadnock® Defensive Tactics System (MDTS). Classes and activities will be held at the DoubleTree Riverfront Hotel in downtown Lowell, MA.

“These programs are an excellent way to maximize training effectiveness,” said Terry Smith, program manager at Monadnock. “We can train officers who can then go back and teach others in their agencies. With our specialized Instructor-Trainer programs, officers learn what it takes to teach others to be an Instructor.”

The four-day Monadnock® Expandable Baton (MEB) and PR-24® programs begin at 8:00 a.m. on May 6 and conclude at 5:00 p.m. on May 9. Those enrolled in either of those two classes may add two days of training, May 10 and May 11, to become eligible to be certified as an Instructor in the Monadnock® Defensive Tactics System (MDTS). Cost for each of the four-day programs is $500 (USD). The six-day certification total package is only $600 (USD).

As a special addition to the Monadnock International Seminar, the Armor Training Academy will offer a one-day Defense-Technology OC Aerosol Projectors Instructor Certification Program on May 10. This program provides information on topics including OC Formulations and carriers, projectors, liability factors and decontamination. This program is available only to those attending the four-day seminar. The cost of the five-day program is $600 (USD). For more specific information on this program, visit
