At the European Police Training Conference in Nuremberg, Germany, John T. Meyer, President of Team One Training Network did a presentation on the topic,
"Building Competence through Simulation Training."
The focus of Policetrainers in Germany is to review, improve and continuously adapt the quality of survival aspects to meet the challenges of police
service. The two-day conference covers developments, techniques and technologies in presentations and provides training units to exercise the practical
deployment of members of official agencies with security and law enforcement responsibilities. Highlights from the presentation and training on Building Competence through Simulation Training.
Teaching officers how to win, when their opponents want to knock ‘em down. In defensive tactics training, every level of a simulation
is broken down into steps. The instructor must choreograph the training drill or scenario and repeat the technique with each student until the students
demonstrates proficiency. The instructor watches the stance, the body position and the overall accuracy of the drill or strike. Creating step by step
isolation drills is a core component of the building block approach in training. In order to properly prepare officers for real life encounters, instructors
must complete the scenarios by introducing dynamic interaction, forcing the student to make in the moment decisions on which move or level of force
is necessary. ..
