Get a glimpse into the train-the-trainer program that will provide the tools your instructors need to create student-centered classes. More videos follow below.
Police Instructor 201
is taught by Officer Richard Neil (ret.), the author of “Police Instructor.
Every student leaves with an arsenal of new tools that breathe life into any topic, engage unruly students, and increase knowledge & retention.
We place the PowerPoint presentation, handouts, videos, and other materials, from the class or workshop, on the website so the attendees always have complete access to the resources they need to enhance their craft as law enforcement instructors.

This was only a 3 Hour workshop, but our attendees can still receive the PPT presentation, other materials used during the program, and a follow-up lesson at
“I have been teaching for nearly 30 years and still learned things I didn't know. We used Neil's techniques in our most recent presentation to about 50 enforcement officers and Chiefs and got our best reviews ever.” ~Jenny Edards, Snohomish, Washington
The Take Away
After attending Police Instructor 201, participants will have an arsenal of tools and resources they can immediately use to enliven their training sessions. Each trainer will receive a copy of Police Instructor, the handbook created to help them deliver dynamic presentations, create engaging slides, and increase active learning. The program and handbook are both filled with proven strategies to transform current lessons, by creating a culture in which law enforcement training is student-centered and interactive - regardless of the topic.
“I enjoyed the class a lot. Your presentation was excellent, it flowed from topic to topic well, was visually appealing, and you did a great job utilizing personal successes and failures to sell your points. I am always a bit leery of “people who teach people to teach”. I have found several that talk a good game but never actually played or people who are so “excited about teaching” that they attempt to get you excited as well through lots of activities. Your teaching style was very good for cynical cops and made us believers.”
~Brian Kanicki, Saginaw Township Police Department, Michigan
“This course is tremendously helpful to me as a 25 year LE trainer. I have been looking for ways to make my courseware more interactive/multimedia inclusive. This course has provided me with some of those tools that I will be using for future programs. Thanks for sharing with me and the LE Community.”

“Just as police officers are the barbed wire that protects the sheep from the wolves, police instructors are the posts that provide them with a foundation of strength.”
