Our Total Officer Protection (TOP) course is one of the best and most effective self-defense systems designed for Police Departments, Security Agencies, and Government Agents.

We are aware of use-of-force and liability issues facing law enforcement these days and we are constantly updating our TOP Program in consultation with use-of-force experts to provide efficient responses in applications of reasonable force.

Our main focus is to keep your officers safe when they enter a combat situation. TOP also provides tactical skills and train the officers to respond quickly with the right tool and apply the correct level of force especially under stress.

The program is also designed to train large numbers of personnel at one time in a short period of time.  There are only 2 Educational Levels, consisting of 4 – 5 Days each. To further accommodate you, we can combine these two courses into a 1-week course of 10 hours each day. This way the officers and the Departments save travel time and expenses.

Those who successfully complete the course will receive a Lifetime 82nd Tactical Unit TOP Law Enforcement Instructor Certificate stating/representing their level of mastery (competency) and qualification to instruct others.  Those who do not receive a passing grade will be presented with a certification of completion/self-improvement.

If for any reason, one is unable to complete this course, he/she may return (free of charge) for another same level course.  If one is here to take this course for self-improvement and during this course decide to take the test to become an instructor, please advise the instructor regarding this decision no later than the end of the course day.

We do not charge any extra fees for those wishing to take the instructor test. This also applies to those who have taken the instructor certification test but do not meet the criteria for passing the course (presented a self-improvement certificate) — one may return and take another course / re-test (at no charge).

82nd Tactical Unit TOP Law Enforcement Instructor Courses are specially reserved for active or retired Police Officers. Some exceptions may be made. Sometimes if an argument can be made we accept firefighters and paramedics to take this course.
