Byrna is pleased to announce that its training program has been recognized by the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) National Certification Program. Byrna is the only less lethal launcher-based program to receive such national certification.
The Byrna Law Enforcement and Private Security Train-the-Trainer Certification Course is a 12-hour course that uses a “skills-based assessment” method to certify instructors to train end users on the use of the Byrna launcher series as well as use-of-force concepts and a review of existing applicable cases- law. Students also spend a significant portion of the course participating in reality-based training scenarios that are designed to represent real life critical incidents. Since the inception of the LE Division in August 2020, Byrna Instructors have certified nearly one thousand LE, private security, and school security professionals as Byrna Less-Lethal Instructors.
Recently, Byrna was accepted into the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training National Certification Program. The IADLEST National Certification Program (NCP) enforces rigorous standards, employs subject matter experts, and incorporates best practices to uphold those standards for vendors seeking recognition for excellence in law enforcement training. This National Certification simplifies access to training by aggregating certifying training in a national training catalog. Departments will easily be able to source certified training from providers nationwide who have met the NCP quality standard. This program and platform also simplifies access, reduces costs, improves training efficiency, and ensures agents receive high-quality training.
Due to the rigorous standards set by IADLEST, as well as comprehensive assessment by subject matter experts, successful certification in this program is a challenging academic undertaking. Byrna’s program is one of the only less-lethal certification courses and is the only less-lethal certification program in the .68 caliber projectile and conducted energy weapon (CEW) market that has met the standards to gain recognition of IADLEST. Jim GordonIADLEST Project Manager said in a letter to Byrna “Your materials have been carefully reviewed by our assessment team and have passed the rigors of our independent review process. You have earned the privilege of displaying the National Program Seal of certification on the First Forward website and to mention your certified status using our NCP mark on your other advertisements specific to this course.”
This recognition is another example of how Byrna continues to strive not only to provide our country’s police and security professionals with the best, less lethal options available, but is also committed to providing the education and professional, progressive and realistic training to arm these first responders with the tools and tactics to best serve their communities.
