Coaching:  Agency Training Staff Development

Master Trainer Tom Benge sharing his expertise with agency instructorsCUTTING EDGE TRAINING's expert trainers provide world-class mentoring and instruction to your agency's training staff in all force skill , tactical, and force knowledge domains.  Our staff provides long-term experience in integrated force training, where the training doctrine of your agency no longer involves separate force and tactical disciplines operating in independently of each other in a training and application vacuum.  Traditional force and tactics training leaves officers struggling to reconcile the inevitable contradictions between Defense Tactics, Firearms, Less-lethal, impact weapons, non-lethal, etc., in the middle of a force event. Confusion and hesitation create errors in application and response.  In the high-liability, high-risk field of law enforcement, this is unacceptable, and moreover, unnecessary.

Cutting Edge Training staff provide low-key, high-impact training and mentorship to your agency instructors to dramatically increase the quality of instruction for your officers.  Far from a standard "instructor development" course, our long-term coaching program is specifically tailored to your training staff's needs.  We maximize your training dollars by maximizing your agency's instructors' ability to provide higher quality, more useful, effective, and functional training.

Whether it is classroom instruction, range or mat skills, or Force-on-Force and Scenario training, the integrated tactical resolution of critical incidents is our specialty.  We pioneered the concept.  Our trainers will make a serious impact on your training program.

Mentoring Agency Instructors to Create a Superb Program

A practical combatives program is not easily arrived at with current instructor development programs of one-week "train-the-trainer" courses.  Frankly, current agency "instructor" training courses are simply orientation or survey courses.  How can any officer be expected to learn a program, regardless of what it entails, to sufficiently and effectively translate that instruction into a training program.  Typically, law enforcement agency instructors operate at a "chapter ahead of the students" level of expertise.  Competency abd a depth of instruction cannot occur without a committed level of exposure and mentorship for that instructor.  If the goal is a superb training program, it is nearly an impossible task without advanced instructor development that can only be achieved through an on-going expert mentoring program.

CUTTING EDGE TRAINING instructional staff are truly master craftsmen in the development of police training cadre.  We will bring our proven expertise in training the trainers of law enforcement in the integrated approach to all force skills, tactics, and decision-making and assist your training staff in creating a rational, cost-effective, and defensible force and combatives training program for your agency.
