Flashbang Instructor Certification Update From CTS Training Institute

Flashbang Instructor Certification courses improve the safety of your team and their response to dangerous and potentially harmful situations. Proper education in less than lethal use of force helps officers enagage suspects appropriately while acting responsibly. In 2008, CSI began a policy requiring current instructor training certificates for the purchases of Flash-Bangs, Tear-Balls, and Sting-Ball Grenades. CSI recognizes “Flash-Bang Instructor Certification” training certificates from other manufacturers, state accredited law enforcement training, and other professional sources deemed credible, such as the National Tactical Officers Association and the California Association of Tactical Officers (CATO).

Flash Bang Instructor TrainingThe CATO Academy has launched an online Flashbang Instructor Update course to recertify officers for ensured dependability and accuracy in using flash bangs. CSI will recognize this online course as meeting the requirement for the purchase of these devices. Paul Ford, VP of Sales and Marketing, congratulated CATO on this training development. “This online certification course is a first, a real continuing education piece for officers needing instructor recertification,” said Ford, “it allows for officers to continue their education, stay up-to-date on accuracy measures gained when using less than lethal munitions.”

The CATO Flashbang Instructor Update is available to all US police officers. The curriculum reviews the basics, while presenting new information, legal issues to ponder, and relevant history. With this program CATO is filling a much needed gap in advanced tactical training with a course that is conducted entirely online at a very reasonable cost. For a $15 digital membership to CATO and $50 course tuition one can attend.
