Over the past decade, training has become a major priority for law enforcement and corrections officers. At the CTS Training Institute (CTSTI), we take training seriously advocating preparedness before the worst case scenario unfolds. CTSTI is "A Force for Order" combining product tools with knowledge and techniques. Our courses prepare the individual officer for the situation while addressing policy and procedure for the agency managing the risks.

CTSTI offers a variety of training programs. Each program has relevance to CTS products. For example, the less lethal instructor training course, consisting of a 4-day program to certify officers as less-lethal instructors, incorporates less lethal products with classroom instruction and practical application. At the completion of the course, officers have the knowledge of the product and the appropriate techniques to return to their respective agencies and certify others in the safe and effective use of each less-lethal option. In addition to less lethal classes from CTSTI, Penn Arms, the premier manufacture of less lethal launchers, offers armorer schools for a variety of 37MM and 40MM platforms.
