Subject: A must-have training I just attended what I would consider to be among the best training I’ve had in my 26yrs of law enforcement and 10yrs as a manager. It is even more important IMHO for those of you who are managing districts as DS I and II. I have suggested that this be required training for DS’s moving forward. It's not your typical cop training, but rather provides science and research that helps explain the known physical, physiological, and emotional effects before, during, and after any serious incident or traumatic event. Again, IMHO, you cannot make an accurate judgment, complete an investigation, or make a determination in such instances without it.
I feel this training (Force Encounters Analysis) is essential for any LEO who may be exposed to a force encounters - especially for supervisors, administrative, and legal staff.
The Human Factors course is priceless training. I suggest it for everyone who intends to promote or develop their organization.
As a mid-management law enforcement person, Force Encounters Analysis training reveals the importance of ensuring my officers are prepared, both mentally and physically, to do their jobs. Valuable insight.
All attorneys who deal with OIS from criminal or civil perspective should be required to attend this course! It will help tremendously w/ OIS reviews but also with homicide reviews for self-defense issues. Rating: 5 of 5
Outstanding presentation in an easy to use/learn method of teaching!
The course (Human Factors Advanced Aviation) was great! Much of this information is relevant to our operations and I'll try to pass on as much of it as I can. The section on fatigue was very useful given our rotating 12-hour shifts. The videos were a great resource, and it all flowed together very well. Five stars.
Mike Tosti was a good instructor - kept class engaged! (HUMAN FACTORS @ CARLSBAD)
Thank you for such a great class. Your experience and enthusiastic approach to this material is infectious. You're saving lives."
Great class Craig. Funny, I was just counseling a very experienced officer about an accidental taser discharge in the lock room. As he went through an explanation of his actions I immediately understood what and why it happened. Thanks."
