After completing five required courses, graduates will have an understanding of basic defensive tactics and how to use those basic techniques against an edged weapon, on the ground, or on the move dynamically.

Required Courses

Once all five courses have been completed, applicants should confirm they meet all certificate requirements using the Master Defensive Tactics Instructor Application and return to the TEEX Law Enforcement & Protective Services Excellence division.
