Use of Force Instructor Refresher


This is the new use of force course which will be presented to Basic Academy students. The course is based on the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Use of Force (Legal Aspects) and Use of Force (Practical Aspects) training.

This training is presented as it would be to students in the POST Basic Academy program.  Although priority will be given to current instructors, this class is open to students who are not currently instructors.

The course will present use of force instructors, particularly those with the high liability training requirements, with the entire course material.

Topics covered will include-

  • When a seizure triggers the 4th Amendment
  • Graham v Connor and other critical use of force cases
  • Deadly force
  • Qualified Immunity
  • Use of force myths
  • Human Performance
  • Decision Making

Completion of this course is required for anyone who teaches use of force,

or other high liability topics, at the POST Academy, starting with the new

academy program on January 7, 2019.  Completion of this course will also

be required for any instructor teaching at any of the College programs by August 2019.


Completion of this course also fulfills the continuing education requirement

for Instructors with High Liability endorsements in firearms, defensive tactics, conducted energy devices, and EVOC.



Completion of this course will not certify students to be a POST Certified Instructor in Use of Force.
