Training

Blue Line Expo is offering two new professional, research-based training courses this year, happening alongside the trade show. Join Steven Poplawski, the director of Step Training Inc., as he walks you through de-escalation in the morning and tackles methods that improve mental and physical readiness in high-stress situations in the afternoon. These courses are suited to the needs of law enforcement professionals, municipal officers and support staff as well as security professionals.

Step Training Inc. has worked with staff of the Province of Ontario, U.S. federal probation officers, U.S. federal marshals, Iceland's national police force, and others. You will walk away with the academic research and best practices for increased officer safety PLUS a fresh certificate.

Morning Workshop: Professional De-escalation Through Validation
8:00am to 11:00am 
Trainer: Steven Poplawski - Step Training Inc.

De-escalation is not one thing, but a combination of many things coming together in an effort to reduce tension. One key component of de-escalation is the ability to validate concerns and distinguish between communication and emotional venting.

The training will outline and demonstrate three clear steps to professional validation when confronted or dealing with someone who is in an elevated emotional state. We will show clear ways to assist people in getting out of a closed emotional loop and demonstrate how to redirect back to a positive outcome.

The tools presented are a result of practical experience, professional contributions and applied research.

Cost: $89 (or $109 for both workshops).

Afternoon Workshop: Introduction to iPREP - Mental and Physical Readiness in High-Stress Situations

iPREP training is a critical tool for first response and training professionals working in high-pressure environments. The International Performance Resilience and Efficiency Program (iPREP) trains use-of-force trainers and first responders on methods that improve mental and physical readiness in high-stress situations. Through effective, evidence-based resilience training, iPREP enhances situational awareness leading to improved critical decision making.

This course will introduce the iPREP modules of physiology, acute stress, technology and breathing techniques that lead to improved performance.

Cost: $89 (or $109 for both workshops).
