R4 Winning a Gunfight- Idaho Falls

Course Number: R4139

Course Description:

Does physically surviving a gunfight mean you won? Not by a long shot. Many people survive gunfights. In fact, most people who are in a gunfight survive. But there is a difference between surviving and winning. Surviving means you continue to exist. Continuing to exist and winning are not the same.

Everyone who carries a gun for personal protection or the protection of others needs to understand what they will face before, during, and after a gunfight. This eight-hour seminar is based on Winning a Gunfight helps prepare the modern warrior to win in the event they face a deadly foe.

Every student receives a copy of Winning a Gunfight, foreword by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman.

R2-139 Beyond Off Duty Survival-Class is full

Course Number: R2-139 Class is full

Description:   Beyond Off Duty Survival

This class teaches attendees what threats they may face off duty and how to respond safely and tactically. We then go even further, helping students to understand how a career in public safety affects our personal relationships both on and off the job. We’ll talk about communication, post traumatic stress & recovery, and the role that optimism plays in our ability to win not just on the street, but in LIFE!

The Smiths believe that you must “train for your relationships as hard as you train for your survival.” You can be the best cop, agent, correctional officer, or commander in your agency, but if you want to be a “winner” in your personal life; tactically, mentally and emotionally, this course is essential to your success! We encourage spouses to attend as our guests!

R4 Detect, Deter, Defeat Human Behavior Threat Analysis- Pocatello

Course Number: R4139

Course Description:

Detect – Human Behavior Analysis is a method of observing people and accurately predicting what their next course of action will be. Social Science has concluded that human behavior can be quite predictable, and it gives the bearer an ability to influence actions and reactions at all levels of public contact. Wouldn’t it be beneficial for the officer to know ahead of time if encounters are going to result in malice or harm toward them? This program teaches the officer to recognize behavior cues that improve their ability to make accurate assumptions about an individual’s thought process, emotional state and plans of action. It also allows an officer to detect individuals who are being deceptive and assist in locating criminals attempting to hide in crowds.

Deter – Human behavior analysis allows an officer to effectively spot dangerous individuals and defuse potential problems before they ever get out of the box. They can also use this information to assist in de-escalating tensions, avoiding potential violent confrontations and maintain stability of volatile situations or hostile scenes. Officers will be able to identify those who consider them as a threat and those who consider them as non-threatening. They will be able to identify the differences between a person who is angry, distraught, mentally disturbed, highly emotional, or whether that person has intentions of malice and harm.

Defeat – How much safer and more effective would an officer be if he or she had the ability to know what a person’s intent is before that action takes place? Being able to observe and understand human behavior indicators gives the officer an ability to better control any deteriorating situation and produce a more favorable and nonviolent outcome. This program teaches the officer methods and actions to diffuse hostilities and defend themselves without resulting in conflict or violence.
