Vol. 151 - CEWs – x26P (OPVTA)

This video is offered as a free learning resource to all registered police officers. As such, there is no associated certificate of completion. It is intended for information only.

This course provides a comprehensive update to OPVTA Vol. 143, which focuses on the earlier Taser X26 model. However, it is expected that the modifications required to adapt the course to the Taser X-26P will be straightforward and easy to implement.

In November 2013, the province of Ontario officially removed restrictions on police deployment of Conducted Energy Weapons (CEWs). This course, which should take 45-60 minutes to complete, delivers knowledge-based content that would otherwise be delivered in approximately two hours of classroom time. This blended approach sets up the practical and judgmental portions which follow, while giving Services more flexibility in how to efficiently schedule and deliver training.

The course is comprised of five chapters: History, Legislative Considerations, How CEWs Work, the Device in Close-up and Deploying the CEW. High-quality video, graphics, animations and interactive activities will help keep learners engaged, and each chapter concludes with a brief quiz. Trainers will have the option of a final “exam” or can incorporate a test at the beginning of the practical sessions.
