The ability to instruct assault countermeasures is a valuable skill that can reduce the incidents of rape or sexual assault and raise awareness throughout the community. The 24-hour PPCT SHARP Instructor certification course is designed to develop the participant's ability to effectively teach the SHARP program. Principles and strategies for effectively reducing the likelihood of assault through both confrontation avoidance and actual techniques of countering an attack are stressed in this program. Because the techniques taught utilize efficient and effective methods of subject control that do not rely on size and strength, SHARP is a training system that can be used by anyone who is interested in personal safety. The course was designed by PPCT Management Systems, Inc., a leader in subject control training systems.
