Electrostatic Control device (EcD)

Electrostatic Control Device (ECD) training teaches participants to use an ECD, such as a Taser, as an effective, non-lethal means of self-defense. An ECD is best and most safely used with training that provides an in-depth understanding of how the device works, how it should be employed and when it should be used to protect oneself and other members of the public, including the subject.

Training Description: This course includes instruction, demonstration and discussion of scenarios to equip participants with the knowledge and practical skills to use an ECD with proficiency, confidence and composure. Training includes discussion of the technical aspects of how the device works (including probe placement and ballistics), legal implications of use, safe handling, finger positions, reloading, deployment protocols, use of a laser and fixed sights and how to aim and hit a target. Demonstration and skill-building focuses first on safety and includes handling and reloading drills.
