Control Defensive Tactics Lead Instructor

The 80-hour lead instructor course is the second in a series of three courses that will guide the student to the master instructor level.

This course builds on the foundation of the CDT Instructor course.  Students will learn how to employ advanced concepts in motor learning to structure a practice session for optimal skill acquisition.  In this phase of the road to being a Master Instructor, the student primarily focuses on how to create proper skill sessions, closed skill testing parameters, open skill practices and testing and finally feedback structures to maximize learning.

In addition, students are required to take the information from the Instructor course and begin breaking “out of the box”, focusing on the principles rather than strict technique.  This open range approach will help the new instructor find ways to accommodate the many different learning styles, differing physical abilities and the wide range of mental capabilities of the learner.

After completion of this course, the Lead Instructor can now lead classes and teach ALL aspects of the Control and Defensive Tactics curriculum taught at the Basic Law Enforcement Academy.  The Lead Instructor is required to teach a minimum of 200 hours under the supervision of a Master Instructor to be eligible for the Master Instructor Program.
