Oleoresin Capsicum (OC)/Pepper Spray User Certification Class - 3 Hours

When your safety is threatened, every second matters. This is why so many individuals rely on the benfits of OC (Pepper) spray.   When used on an assailant, these products can incapacitate your attacker, giving you the crucial moments you need to escape. This three (3) hour end-user level certification program focuses on the proper deployment, safe handling, decontamination and liability mitigation of the use of OC (oleoresin capsicum). 

Pepper sprays deliver a concentrated burst of capsaicin, the chemical found in peppers that give them their effects. When it comes in contact with mucous membranes — including the eyes, nose or throat — it triggers an instantaneous inflammatory response. Along with pain, the eyes may swell shut and the respiratory system can be disrupted, causing difficulty breathing. The combined effects can incapacitate a person for up to several minutes, giving you the time you need to get to safety and away from harm. 

Our course is a must for citizens and security professionals that want to carry OC spray for self defense purposes. The class will be taught by our master use of force instructor with nearly 3 decades of OC instruction and street experience.  Inert and live OC will be used in this class.  Students will be required to pass a written and practical exposure test to complete and pass the course.  Certificates will be given after successful completion.

This class is an ideal certification for security and safety teams.  

*Students must be 18 years or older
