This (Force Encounters Analysis) training is essential and should be used as a foundation for tactics and firearms training before a force option is practiced. Rating: 5 out of 5
Question: What topics were most relevant for you? Answer: ALL OF IT. Score: 5 of 5
As a firearms instructor I found this course (Force Encounters Analysis) to be invaluable. The concepts presented were relevant, up to date, and translated directly to patrol. Trust the science! It can save your life.
This course (Force Encounters Analysis) should be required in all public safety agencies, from top to bottom, through the ranks. It should also be taught, in modules to arrest/control classes, firearms, field training, etc. Excellent class! There were NO topics presented that I felt were NOT applicable to my job.
Force Encounters Analysis is a course every member of a LE command staff should take before making presumptions about officer's actions during OIS incidents.
CTI's Advanced Human Factors course is hands down the most beneficial class I have sent many of my guys through. You will walk away from this class approaching humans and aviation differently. LTC Geis' material puts the explanation in the "why" with a lot of the issues we have. I am the safety officer and use this information extensively in my investigations. CTI coursework provides a deeper, more understandable explanation to human error. We have now trained safety personnel, stands personnel, maintenance personnel, and pilots. My organization recently required all senior leaders to attend the course in order to further refine and educate our leaders. Once you are armed with this knowledge, you can approach mission planning or daily work routines at a different angle. I have sat through this class about 6 times and learn something new every time.
I wish I was offered this class early in my career. All topics were relevant and important for officers.
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."
Best class I ever attended. It made behavior we've all seen for years make sense.
This course (Force Encounters Analysis) is a must for all police adminitrators who review OIS. I will send IA investigators from my department to this, and will recommend the class to colleagues in our DA's office.
