The instructor was very knowledgeable and motivated. His personal experience added meaning to the lecture.
Great course and good use of PowerPoint, videos, and verbal instruction. This will assist me when I'm interviewing victims and reviewing police officer's reports. This information applies to assault victims and how they recall critical events, and the sometimes lack of detail, due to how they process the associated stress.
Outstanding and engaging class that is extremely relevant to law enforcement.
This class should be required for every FTO, Instructor, Sergeant and Command Staff member. It provides valid explanations for why we make the decisions we make, how humans react under stress, and how we learn.
The training I received in CTI's Human Factors: Threat and Error Management, and Force Encounters Analysis courses have significantly enhanced the use of force and firearms training that I provide to my fellow officers. Anyone involved in teaching officer survival skills, analyzing use of force incidents, and/or designing use of force policies should attend this training. Thank you for the work you are doing to provide this information to our LE community. As a community, police trainers need to be intimately familiar with the concepts and scientifically validated research presented here. It is not enough to use terms like tunnel vision and increased heart rate, without knowing what is actually happening and why. CTI presents the science in a way that facilitates comprehension without excessive simplification. This is training that I can take back to my agency and immediately put into action. These courses have also provided me with a direction to take for my personal study and research into the critical task of training our officers to not only survive, but also to prevail in a life-or-death encounter.
This class should be offered as early as possible to a new police officer, as I wish I would have had some of this knowledge at the start of my career.
Force Encounters Analysis is excellent training for all ranks of officers. It is useful for investigators, trainers, and use of force experts. It enables students to understand the science behind what officers do during stressful situations, and why we react the way we do.
Force Encounters Analysis should be a mandatory class for all LEO and citizen review board members.
Craig Geis is an excellent teacher with vast knowledge of the subject matter. This class should be mandatory for anybody working in a LE management position, homicide, internal affairs, the city attorneys' office, or serving on a citizen's review board.
Absolutely lifesaving science-based information that every police officer should be aware of! Great stuff that can and will protect modern day law enforcement.
