The goal of law enforcement trainers – aside from implementing programs that keep both officers and the community safe – is to take their department to the next level. VirTra offers a variety of in-house and on-site certification courses that are designed to give trainers the ability to excel, improve department goals, and ensure that their training simulators and scenarios are utilized to their fullest potential.
VirTra Advanced Trainer Certification Course (ATCC)
This 40-hour high demand course takes you through how to incorporate simulation into your training program properly and maximize training time. It includes “The Science of Simulation Training” and “Train the Operator.” The Science of Simulation is a critical overview and application of the science into adult learning and specifically as it applies to simulation. These adult learning concepts apply to all modes of learning to include both in and out of simulation. This highly developed advanced class has been a highlight for many trainers who have attended.

VISTELAR CONFLICT MANAGEMENT INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION COURSE
Our partners at Vistelar are presenting their “Conflict Management for Contact Professionals Instructor Certification” course at VirTra’s headquarters September 17-20, 2019. This course covers important aspects of conflict management: non-escalation (conflict prevention), de-escalation and crisis intervention tactics — but not physical alternative tactics (control, stabilization, non-lethal/lethal weapons). The training is focused on how to identify, manage and resolve conflict at the point of impact — the short period of time when a disagreement or insult can escalate to conflict and on to emotional and/or physical violence.
This four-day course certifies individuals as instructors for Vistelar’s Conflict Management for Contact Professionals training program (Verbal Defense & Influence™), so they are authorized to teach this program within their organization. Full details can be found in the course brochure, and registration information can be obtained below.
