Pepper Spray Training for Law Abiding Citizens​
4 hours


OC (oleoresin capsicum), commonly known as pepper spray, is an outstanding choice for a self-defense tool.  But, without proper training and knowledge of its tactical benefits and limitations the person deploying it can find themselves in more trouble than they bargained for. Students will be trained in the use of pepper spray as a self-defense tool. Dynamic simulation drills with training inert canisters are a key part of the curriculum. Upon completion of this course attendees will have the knowledge to select products that best suit their needs for self-defense purposes.
The course was designed by Zane Nickell and is vendor neutral (not governed or restricted by a specific manufacturer). Mr. Nickell has 20+ years experience with self defense sprays and is considered an expert on this topic.  He has taught user and instructor courses for law enforcement and military personnel at the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy, as well as independent security organizations.
**No live agents are used in these classes nor are students sprayed with live OC. Contamination with pepper spray is not mandatory.**
