Dynamic Simulation


This 40-hour course is designed to teach students to teach others how to create and facilitate court-defensible practical learning simulations that closely replicate the environments and stress levels officers face in real-life street situations, to allow students to experience such events in a safe learning environment where they can make mistakes and learn from them without risk to their personal safety.

The basic principles and procedures covered in this program can be applied to firearms, defensive tactics, aerosol weapons, batons, or virtually any other type of physical skill training applicable to the criminal justice field. This course prepares students to instruct the HFRG Dynamic Simulation basic course; refines the student’s knowledge base; and presents instructional methods for teaching survival skills.
