O.O.D.A. Loop based Officer Survival™ training is NOT your typical officer survival course. O.O.D.A. Loop based Officer Survival™ is specifically designed with updated officer survival information, advanced tactics and forward thinking to help give officers the upper hand on the street.

Col John Boyd's Fast Transits Theory

Idea of fast transients suggests that, in order to win, we should operate at a faster tempo or rhythm than our adversaries—or, better yet, get inside adversary’s observation-orientation-decision-action time cycle or loop.

Course Overview:

O.O.D.A. Loop based Officer Survival training provides up to date, knowledge based, on and off duty Officer Survival information specifically designed to help save officer’s lives on a daily basis. This training focuses on understanding, maximizing and properly utilizing the O.O.D.A. Loop on multiple levels and combines officer survival tactics with a performance centered understanding of:

How the OODA Loop works, both for and against officers.

How memory is encoded and recalled for maximum benefit.

How to recognize and decipher danger signs, including previously unrecognized signs.

How to control stress, fear and anxiety before, during and after dangerous encounters.

How to maximize your work, training and personal mindset for survival.
