Searching the Marketplace

Courses in the FirstForward Marketplace may be found by entering simple keywords. These search terms are used to match against course titles, course descriptions, topic areas, class locations, and the name of the vendor providing the training.

You may further refine the keyword search by including special commands:

  • To match the beginning and end of a word, include * in the middle of a keyword as wildcard (e.g., crim*s)
  • To match a specific phrase, add double quotes (e.g., "in the field")
  • To require words, add + before the word or phrase (e.g., +enforcement)
  • To exclude words, add - before the word or phrase (e.g., -structure)

Except when an exact match is required, the Marketplace search will attempt to match similar words, including partial matches and some misspellings.

Course Information

This 12-hour instructor’s course provides the basic awareness to instruct law enforcement officers who encounter dogs on their jobs a better perceptive on how to deal with these encounters.

This training will provide officers with a better perspective on canine encounters, and will teach officers how to recognize canine aggression and interpret body language. Officers will learn defensive tactics and how to use street proven less-lethal techniques in controlling their canine encounters. Officers will spend approximately 12 hours in a classroom setting and will also participate in training practicals.
