Cell Extraction Instructor


This 5-day (40 hours) agency instructor level certification program was designed for agencies to train and certify departmental instructors in Cell Extraction and Control Systems for corrections. This course was designed to enhance the instructor’s development in the use and training of control tactics for single and multiple officer control tactics using anatomically correct techniques, and to protect departments from costly litigation issues that could arise from the use of physical force during an encounter. This course fully addresses all aspects of physical restraints, and introduces the “Shield Subduing Techniques and Tactics.” Instruction is based on realistic use and applications of control methods in the use of force situations.
