The UOFITP is designed to give the student the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully design, develop and implement Use of Force training using static, dynamic, and interactive training principles. The UOFITP is for law enforcement professionals who train officers or agents in the principles of Use of Force, develop or revise Use of Force policy, and are responsible for review and evaluation of agency Use of Force incidents. It is not designed as an end user course which teaches an individual how to use force correctly. The UOFITP utilizes adult learning principles as well as problem based training, role-play, lecture and demonstrations to give the student the skills they need to be successful developing and teaching their own training programs related to Use of Force.
