STOPS Instructor Course: May 14-17, 2018

Pro Train will be certifying officers in your region in our proven officer survival tactics. There are nearly 3000 STOPS Instructors throughout the United States. Officers completing this course will be certified in INSTRUCT officers in the STOPS officer survival program. Upon completion of the STOPS program your officers will be able to SAFELY execute vehicle stops. pedestrian contacts, commercial vehicle stops, vehicle extractions, drug interdiction stops, and high risk (felony) stops. Officers will be trained in risk assessments, and proven methods to counter both felonious and accidental assaults. Vehicle stops will be broken into 12 ambush zones for the officer to be aware of, and escape techniques to counter and defeat any type of assault.
The STOPS program is based upon research from officers that have been injured or killed in the line of duty. We then developed strategies and tactics that countered the assaults, which will greatly increase the officers survival probabilty. The STOPS program is nationally and internationally recognized as the leading program in tactical/ officer survival training available.
Vehicle stops will be divided into low risk, unknown risk and high risk. Each category has pre planned options to  minimize the chances of being assaulted by both accidental and felonious means. One of the goals is for the officers to always be thinking about the safest way to deal with every situatin, and for the officer to recognize the danger cues. If an assault occurs our students will dominate through superior training and a warrior mindset. STOPS training is realistic and extremely dynamic with both classroom and dynamic field exercises. These classes will also include our bonus simunitions force on force training, and our tactical live fire course.
Upon obtaining instructor level certification instructors will then be certified to teach the STOPS Officers Survival System for 36 months.
