PPCT Defensive Tactics Instructor Course

The PPCT Defensive Tactics System is the first subject control system developed through tactical, legal and medical research.  Tactically, the system addresses the most common types of resistance that offers may encounter, allowing the instructor to maximize training on job related techniques.  Legally, the PPCT System teaches a simple use of force continuum that clarifies the appropriate force level for every level of resistance.  Medical research was conducted on every PPCT technique to refine technique efficiency and to ensure the medical implications were proportional to the level of resistance.
