Tactical Vision Program


You are not the trained observer you think you are.

Our Tactical Vision course has the following learning objectives:

  Make officers aware of the scope of the problem of Perceptual Blindness, and how it affects their performance and safety.

  Teach officers the mechanics of vision.

  Introduce officers to the various components of Perceptual Blindness.

  Teach officers how to recognize the limitations of their vision, and give them the training tools to overcome the problem.

  Teach officers how to integrate their new visual skills into daily activities like investigations, handling service calls and driving, both routine and pursuit.

Tactical Vision is an 8-hour class that will actually show police officers how to become “trained observers.”  To supplement the classroom instruction, officers will receive a proprietary CD, containing over 50 training exercises, which they can do at their leisure, to develop and maintain their observation skills.

The Tactical Vision program was originally designed for special operations personnel, but is highly recommended for all police officers.

Class sizes and schedules can be customized to fit your department’s training needs.
