COVID Update May 23, 2021


Class Size and Registrations-
We have been capping our class numbers at 12-15 students based on the size of the training facility.  Depending on the rules put in place by the host venue, we may or may not have to continue capping the classes for the remainder of 2021.  When possible, we will take as many registrations as we can while taking into consideration the size of the facility.

Masks-
The rules put in place by the host venue and the individual states will dictate the mask policy for each class.  If there is no specific mask policy in place, we will permit each student to make his/her own decision of whether or not they want to wear a mask while participating in class.  Students should be mindful of current CDC recommendations.  

 
Training Modifications
With the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines the pandemic is now being brought under control. During the height of the pandemic we permitted instructors and agencies to make their own decisions about the safety of hands-on training.  We now believe that all agencies should be making plans to transition back to hands-on training.  That includes the resumption of testing students for proficiency during all classes.  Agencies who choose to forgo hands-on training assume all liability for failing to test their officers for proficiency.

Responsible use of distance learning through Facetime, Skype, Zoom and similar methods is still acceptable. As long as the instructor is able to deliver the material to the students and administer the applicable exams then the PPC, Inc. training standards have been met.

News & Notes

 
This year we began testing a blended-learning model for our Instructor courses.   Part #1 of the course will be self-paced and completed online by the student prior to attending class.  Part #2 of the course will be completed face-to-face under the direction of an Instructor-Trainer.  We are hopeful that this blended model will improve the overal delivery of the material and open new possibilities for the future.  As always, we appreciate your anticipated cooperation and patience with this new project.
