Less-Lethal munitions have been available to American law enforcement agencies for over 40 years. With the advent of research-supported training, these specialty rounds have gained a broader acceptance in patrol, tactical, and correctional settings. The instructor level courses cover the full family of AMTEC Less-Lethal munitions and will prepare the instructor to train users within their agency in the deployment and use of impact projectiles, ballistic breaching, chemical agents, and noise/flash diversionary devices (NFDD's).
Our training classes are only for Law Enforcement, Military, Corrections, Private Security Agencies or Private Training Agencies.
No, we also take our training “on the road” and conduct classes offsite.
Under the Training Events Section you will see a schedule of upcoming scheduled courses.
The farther in advance you register the better. One factor in deciding if a class is held is determined by the number of students attending. We will accept late registrants, but only a limited amount. We need to know how many students are attending so ample munitions are shipped for deploying during the hands on portion of the classes.
You will receive your certificate(s) at conclusion of the training if you registered ahead of time. If you were a last-minute registrant, your certificate will be mailed to you as soon as possible.
No charge. If the class needs to be canceled for whatever reason, it is canceled at no charge to your Agency.
There is no maximum number of students for ALS, we will accommodate with additional trainers when needed. Key to the number is students is that the hosting agency can accommodate the number of students. Minimum number of students needed will vary according to which class is being held, location of the class, etc.
No, it is not mandatory; however, we STRONGLY recommend that you receive a Level 1 OC exposure of our Top Cop Brand OC Aerosol which is 1.33% capsaicinoids. We will maintain your record of exposure and send you a copy of the exposure documentation if requested. If you choose not to receive a Level 1 OC contamination, it is your responsibility to produce your record of exposure in the event it is requested for future legal proceedings or other business-related purposes.

Currently, we are conducting the ALS 4-day Less Lethal Instructor Course and a Mission Less Lethal Instructor/Armorer class. We will be conducting an ALS single shot launcher armorer and a Rippel multi launcher armorer class in the very near future. We do not believe in cluttering up a training calendar with classes that we have no intentions of conducting just to make it “look good” or busy.
Yes, you are exposed to CS during the Gas Mask clearing drill.
