In addition to the topics listed above, students will be taught the most up to date, relevant teaching methods and are expected to perform teach-backs on several of the lessons taught in the course. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be issued instructor certification, allowing them to instruct the course material, within their respective agencies, for a three-year period. They will also have direct access to the instructors of Virtus Tactical Training should any follow-up assistance be required.
