The Methods of Instruction – Training Practical Professional Policing Skills course fills a critical vacuum in law enforcement training by incorporating the latest science of how we learn.

This learner-centered course will leverage an adult learning, problem-based approach with participants expected to do 20+ hours of pre-class reading/viewing and assignments in addition to the 40-hours of in-class instruction. Successful completion of this course requires individuals to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the material and its application in various contexts.

Participants who successfully finish the course will have a broad understanding of identifying critical training needs along with building and instructing an evidence-based training program to address the essential skills required by law enforcement officers to protect themselves and the public during critical incidents.

The course completion requires the following to earn a certificate of completion.
