Guardian 8 Debuts Training Program for Enhanced Non Lethal Devices
Guardian 8 Corporation, a provider of innovative personal safety and security tools, today announced that it will kick off its training program for the G8 ProV2, the first in a new category of security products called enhanced non-lethals (ENL), during a free, one-day event on September 27th during the ASIS 2013 conference in Chicago. After successfully completing the course, attendees will be certified to train other security professionals on the layered defense capabilities of the G8 ProV2. Guardian 8 Corporation is the wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings.
“Security professionals are looking for tools that enable them to take appropriate non-lethal actions to mitigate personal risk, and the G8 ProV2 does just that by incorporating pepper spray and communications technologies in a lightweight, duty-belt device,” said Paul Hughes, COO of Guardian 8. “Our training course is designed to educate the security industry on how to leverage the advanced, yet easy-to-use, technologies integrated into the G8 ProV2 and effectively use the device in their day-to-day operations.”
The G8 Pro V2 fully integrates several non-lethal technologies and a communications platform to provide a safer personal defense solution. It provides a layered defense as an alternative to force from up to 50 feet away, including laser spotter, siren, strobe light, O.C. pepper spray, camera with voice and video auto-record functionality, push-to-talk communications capabilities.
G8 ProV2 Training and Certification
The G8 ProV2 training courses will provide an overview of the type of digital evidence produced by the device, including images, audio and electronic record of dates and times of key events, and how to download and utilize that evidence. Attendees also will hone their targeting skills as they practice operating the non-lethal technologies. To qualify for training, attendees must already have certification for use of O.C. pepper spray if their local laws require it.
When attendees have completed the course, they will be certified to instruct frontline users on proper use of the G8 ProV2. The training is designed to be flexible so that instructors can adapt it to include policies and procedures that are unique to their organization or the state(s) in which they operate.
The free, inaugural G8 ProV2 training and certification class on Friday September 27th will take place from 8am to 5pm at the Hyatt McCormick Place in downtown Chicago. This course is limited to the first 30 people to register on the Guardian 8 website.
After the initial training session in Chicago, Guardian 8 will offer additional courses around the country. The cost to attend these sessions will be $179 per person. For full details on the locations, dates and times of future G8 ProV2 training, visit the Guardian 8 website.
