Use of Force and Handcuffing Training (Physical and Online)
Next Class is in Toronto December 1st – Book Now – Limited Spots!
PART 1: Complete the online course
This Use of Force Course is an online, academic only, training program. Many available programs do not teach the legalities and the “why and when” of legitimate uses of force. They tend to cut this part out and proceed directly to the hands on “how to”. This is why some courses are cheaper and shorter than other more legitimate ones.
Students will be emailed their login details within 24 hours of purchase.
We want this learning to stay with you after you finish. Therefore, students can download and keep the Handcuffing and Search Modules. We suggest that students spend about 8 hours on the lessons.
The online program includes videos and “how to” demonstrations, step by step processes etc. for both empty hand disengagement skills and handcuffing and search techniques. This is in support of the academic materials taught. It is not meant as a stand-alone course in the use of force.

The courts at all levels, have repeatedly stated that any legitimate use of force by one Canadian on another is subject to what they call a “two step test.” The first step is the examination of who you are, what you are doing, the legalities of both, and the legal process ie. arrest, self-defence etc. If you can explain what you are doing, why you were doing it, and legally where your authorities come from, the court then proceeds to the second step.
Step two involves a subjective and objective evaluation of the “levels of force” you used within the totality of the context involved. Obviously if you don’t pass step one, any force you did use is excessive, illegal and therefore cannot be justified by the court. This is why the academic portion of any use of force training is equally as important as learning the physical skills such as empty hand, handcuffing or even baton.
The program was designed, developed and is monitored by Superior Court Recognized Subject Matter Experts in this field. These experts, (transcripts on file upon request) are specialists in training Canadian Security guards/officers, Police and Special Constables, Sheriffs, Bylaw Enforcement Officers, Loss Prevention and other Provincial Officers.
