NTOA Conference Training

Practical Training

This portion of the conference is hands-on training designed to teach both core and advanced tactical skill sets and can range from 8 to 32 hours, depending upon the track. These courses may include some classroom lecture, but are mostly interactive and physically demanding. They also require participants to bring their own equipment and firearms to class.

Seminar Training

This portion of the conference is lecture-based training, which may include some tabletop exercises and group discussions. Seminar-based courses are typically 2 or 4 hours, and may be offered multiple times throughout the week.

Incident Debriefs

This portion of the conference is lecture-based training, but focuses primarily on lessons learned and current trends affecting our society and the law enforcement community. You will hear firsthand from the officers involved in these situations and how they were handled.

Over 60 courses to choose from, many offered multiple times.
