The 16th USNSTA will have locations again this year.!
The Eastern Conference will be hosted by the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office at their location in Scott, LA. Conference dates are December 14 - 18, 2015.
The Western Conference will be in Las Vegas, late 2015/early 2016. Details to be announced.
This instructor development training seminar is designed to help trainers put all their training programs into an integrated system of use of force training. Departments have already invested time and resources into budget line items for an array of less-lethal subjects such as baton training, handcuff training, defensive tactics training, ground defense training, weapon retention training, OC training, Taser training, and high risk arrest training. This conference will provide tools to maximize these training investments.
The 2015 Instructors Academy sets out to assist the instructor in learning how to better be able to work within time and budget restrictions, increase student proficiency and retention, train students that are resistant to being trained, address different learning styles, and organize and deliver multi-discipline lesson plans.
