Course Overview

One of the most common law enforcement tools in use today, this course focuses on the proper deployment of Oleoresin Capsicum (OC). The course is separated into lectured-based studies followed by a half-day doing practical application drills, product testing and evaluation in the field. Unlike many classes on this topic, the information provided is direct from the manufacturer of the products used. The course covers topics such as tactical considerations, decontamination/first aid, protective masks and criminal and civil liabilities, policies and procedures with a focus on instructor development to prepare the student to provide in-service training and documentation for their agency. Throughout the class, students participate in discussions with our instructors, who are nationally recognized for their experience in real world deployments of OC products. Upon completion of the course and successfully passing the final exam, the student may provide in-service training to their agency in specific areas for 24 calendar months from the testing date.

Students will receive a CD containing the PowerPoint program used in each course. These CDs contain material and video to be utilized by the student when for training in their own departments.

The Training Academy will supply all munitions required for the class. Although launchers are available at the class for student use, it is highly recommended that students bring the departmental launcher for training purposes. After all, this is the gun they will use to instruct and certify other members of their department.

Fit for Duty: This course involves physical exercises. Students are required to actively participate in these exercises as part of their successful completion requirements. Students should be physically prepared for these classes in order to ensure successful completion of the courses. Some of these courses involve exposure to chemical agents as well as the physical exercises. Students with physical conditions that may impair their ability to participate are responsible for contacting their physician for medical clearance prior to enrollment. Conditions requiring such consultation include but are not limited to high blood pressure, heart problems, lung problems, to include bronchitis and asthma, or allergies. Safariland, LLC will not assume responsibility for any students who do not seek medical consultation prior to course participation. Any student who is unable to participate in the exercises cannot receive a certificate of completion. It is incumbent upon the student to ensure they are physically capable of meeting the requirements of the courses.

Notice to students: Students of this course will be exposed to Oleoresin Capsicum as a requirement for their successful completion certificate. Students who have undergone any type of eye surgery in the past 12 months must notify the Safariland Training Group prior to enrollment in a OC Aerosol Projector Instructor course. Typically, patients who have undergone eye surgery require approximately six months for complete recovery. In order to provide the greatest margin of safety, Safariland STRONGLY advises that any student who has undergone eye surgery to delay participation in this class for a full calendar year from the date of surgery.
