Region 1 16-hour Advanced Hostage Negotiations Class

Registration is closed. Class is at capacity.

This two-day advanced negotiation class is for police crisis (hostage) negotiators who have already passed a 40-hour basic certification course. Day one will begin with some callout debriefings, then review basic (active listening) and advanced (influence and persuasion) negotiator skills, and then will use callout debriefings from the instructor’s past experience as examples. Day two will cover the advanced topics of negotiating with different psychiatric conditions, and will focus on negotiating with those who are personality disordered and/or empathy impaired. A 15-hour hostage standoff debriefing from the instructor’s past experience will serve as an example.

Registration is $120 per person. The class is limited to 20 people.

For more information, registration questions or to be put on a standby list, please contact.
