LEO Defense Systems understand that both large and small departments can have problems with scheduling in service training from an outside source because of a lack of funds or because of a lack of officers on the street. Because of this, LEO Defense Systems offers an instructional satellite program. This program is designed to train anywhere from one person to an entire cadre of instructors for a department. The instructors from LEO DS will train the individual or group to a minimum Level 3 requirement which will certify the person(s) as a Training Instructor. After certification, the Training Instructor(s) will be granted the ability to train officers within their department only. This is not a train the trainer certification and will only allow the instructor to teach the techniques to his/her department. Below is a list of requirements for Satellite Program Instructor Certifications.
Once the candidate completes the program and is granted a Training Instructor Certificate, they are allowed to instruct the LEO DS Lesson Plan to their department. The Training Instructor can teach the basic or complete lesson plan to officers depending on their certification. However, the testing/evaluation process for the Training Instructors students must be conducted in the presence of a Field Instructor or higher for official certification from LEO DS, although POST credit in most states can still be earned without LEO DS completing the actual evaluation.
LEO DS will supply Training Instructors with a copy of a POST certified lesson plan, teacher Packet which includes a narrative on all techniques, and a phone number to contact a Field Instructor or higher if needed.
Departments who have highly skilled instructors, who can certify at a Field or Expert Instructor level, can use that instructor for train the trainer courses as specified in the instructor certification list. There is a minimal cost for this service which is based on department size. This is a great opportunity for departments to be able to teach their own people and become self sufficient. The goal for LEO DS is to keep costs down for departments and allow them to create their own cadre that only needs small amounts of additional training to keep certifications.
Discounts are available for departments who choose to participate in the Satellite Program and sign up to be a Supporting Department (use of agency name in media publications and website).
Costs for the satellite program range from $2500 to $50,000 depending on agency size, need, current cadre level and many other factors. This one-time cost gives the agency the ability to train the program and train it within their agency as long as they have a certified instructor. This one-time cost does not include travel expenses or seminar fees if LEO DS staff is requested to conduct a seminar outside of the yearly seminar.
If a seminar is requested or specific training for a small cadre of instructors is requested, the costs will be $450 per student for basic certification, or $750 for advanced certification. There is a minimum of 4 officers for basic certification or 4 officers for advanced certification travel requests. These costs are based on agencies in Nevada, California, Arizona, Utah, Oregon, and Idaho and do not include travel expenses.
Gym owners who would like to be certified to teach the program in their area can contact a board member at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an interview. A background will be done on all applicants and a yearly affiliation fee is required. There is also a limit to Non LE affiliations per region/state/city. Gym owners are allowed to run weekly classes in their own gym for profit and can conduct seminars.
