Completion of this one-day course of instruction meets or exceeds the training and safety course requirements of the State of Connecticut for all pistol permit applicants.

 

This class teaches safe handling of handguns and other firearms and includes live fire with both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. Grey Wolf Consulting instructors are all certified through the NRA or other certifying agencies with extensive firearms training and real life experience.

***HURRY AND TAKE THE CLASS BEFORE THE PERMIT COST SKYROCKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!***

The Core Topics Of Instruction Within This Program Include:

  • Basic Pistol (Semi-automatic & Revolver and Other Firearms)
  • Nomenclature, Safety and Handling
  • Basic Ammunition Nomenclature, Handling and Safety
  • Proper and Safe Firearm and Ammunition Storage
  • Basic Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting and Positions
  • Common Range Rules and Commands

  • More.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate or letter of completion, which may be used to apply for a pistol permit within the State of  Connecticut, Florida, and several other States.

State of Connecticut Specific Applicant Information:

Under State of Connecticut Law, applicants for a permit to carry a handgun (Pistol Permit) are required to perform the following steps:

1. Complete an approved firearms safety class (Also known as a Pistol Permit class).

2. Obtain a pistol permit application packet from their local authorities (Typically the Police Dept.).

3. Complete the pistol permit application and assemble the required documentation (Typically a copy of identification, birth certificate, letters of reference, letter or certificate of completion from a firearms instructor) and fingerprints.

4. Submit the required documents and application to the local issuing authority.

5. Submit to a thorough background check is completed. (Under current law, the local authority has 8 weeks to approve or deny the application. If no response is heard after 8 weeks inquire as to the status)

6. If approved, the applicant will receive what is referred to as a “TEMPORARY STATE PISTOL PERMIT”. This temporary pistol permit will NOT allow the purchase of a firearm and more importantly, it maintains a expiration period of 60 days. Therefore it is critical that once this Temporary State Pistol Permit is obtained that the applicant immediately apply to the State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection in Middletown, CT. to obtain their full State Pistol Permit within this 60 day period to avoid the need to start the entire process over again from the beginning.

7. If for some reason the application is denied, the applicant may appeal such denial to the State of Connecticut Board of Permit Examiners for reconsideration. (Note: By regulation, the applicant has a maximum of 90 days from the date of denial to appeal the decision, afterwards appeal through this board will not be possible.)

We provide the Pistol Course. This DESPP (Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection) which is basically the CT State Police, issued Pistol Permit, is for anyone over the age of 21 and allows for the carry and purchase of handguns, long guns, and ammunition.

The main objective of the Basic Pistol Class is for the student to learn the basic skills, knowledge and attitude to safely handle pistols and revolvers.

Instructors Louis Bonito & Brian S Williams

Class and shooting all done at same day. Shooting will be done at location close to class.

The Basic Pistol Class includes classroom training on gun parts and operation, ammunition safety, cleaning, storage, loading and unloading, shooting fundamentals, range safety and pistol sports and activities. Students are then required to demonstrate safe gun handling while completing a live fire exercise on the shooting range.

In addition, we will thoroughly go over the Connecticut permit process so that you can successfully apply for and receive your permit(s).

Residents of Connecticut who wish to purchase, possess and transport pistols and revolvers outside their homes within the State of Connecticut or who wish to carry a handgun on their person for personal protection in the event of a self defense situation must first obtain a CT Permit to Carry Pistol and Revolvers. With this permit you will also be able to purchase rifles, shotguns and ammunition without needing to get another certificate or permit. (Recently passed PA 13-3 requires that after April 1, 2014 any purchaser of a rifle or shotgun hold a Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers, a Handgun Eligibility Certificate or the newly created “Long Gun Eligibility Certificate” Ammunition certificates will be required to purchase ammunition or magazines after October 1st of 2013).

One of the things you must do prior to submitting your application for a CT Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers or a CT Handgun Eligibility Certificate is to successfully complete a course in handgun safety that has been approved by the Connecticut Department of Public Safety.

This Class meets this requirement in Connecticut, successful completion of this course also meets the training requirement to apply for Non-Resident Carry Permits in Florida, Maine and several other states.

HOSTAGE NEGOTIATOR / CRISIS NEGOTIATOR Intro Seminar

LJB Security Training and Consulting is the only agency in CT that specializes in all levels of training and consulting.

  The training program has been taught in several formats and can be tailored to fit your business. Training is at 58 Renshaw Drive East Haven, CT 06512 or can be on site at your location.

 The biggest problem we face in crisis negotiators is the serious lack of education/training. Remember crisis negotiation is a serious business!!!!!

We are the best at what we do!!!

The cost is $199.

Location: 58 Renshaw Dr East Haven, Ct 06512.

All participants are trained in the following areas:

Avoiding Escalating Violence

Psychologist Kris Mohandie says the first police to respond to a hostage situation must be trained to remain calm to avoid antagonizing perpetrators and escalating situations into violence.

Active Listening and Emotion Labeling

The negotiator tries to establish a relationship with the hostage-taker by finding out why they’re there and what they’re upset about using active listening and emotion labeling.

The Hostage as Negotiating Tool

Psychologist John Potter says hostage-taking is all about gaining power and using hostages as a negotiating tool. At USC the emergency room continues to function amidst the hostage crisis.

The Danger of Role Lock

In a hostage situation, if a stand-off drags on too long people get locked into their roles of hostage-takers and negotiators, which are hard to break.

Paranoia Can Lead to Violence

Psychologist Kris Mohandie says paranoid people develop a violent action imperative when they make a decision to act and a time imperative when they feel they must act.

Reasoning with Hostage-Takers

Active listening is the key to lowering hostage-taker’s anxiety level and getting them to reason. The FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit gives courses on hostage negotiation using role playing.

Hogan Alley Training Camp

Hogan Alley is a mock town which serves as a hostage negotiation training camp for police. Police role play different hostage scenarios, learning roles of coach and primary negotiator.

The Hostage-Taker’s Background

Police try to predict a hostage-taker’s next move by studying his background. At USC, police view hostages at low risk for violence because they don’t fit the mold of Torres’ imaginary antagonists.

The Stockholm Syndrome

The “Stockholm Syndrome” is a strong, tension-charged bond between hostage and hostage-taker. It is named after a bank robbery in Sweden where a hostage and a bank robber fell in love.

Negotiator-Perpetrator Relationships

Hostages and negotiators often bond with the hostage-taker. They can become upset if the perpetrator is hurt, so the Incident Commander decides when to take police action.

Hostages’ Psychological Scars

After Torres surrenders, police learn he intended to shoot more doctors and then kill himself. Former hostage, Anne Tournay, suffers from nightmares and psychological scars after the incident.

Aftermath of a Hostage Crisis

Former hostage, Anne Tournay, forgives her captor and now corresponds regularly with him. Her career path changed to focus on clinical work instead of research as a result of the incident.

Handcuff Certification PATH 2nd Friday @ LJB Security Training LLC
Jul 12 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

This course is an industry standard training for the use and application of handcuffs and restraints, and greatly reduces your liability and increases your value in the marketplace. The training course is commonly known as PATH, and the lesson plan is by PPC.

Practical and Tactical Handcuffing logo

Overview

Handcuffs are among the most often used tool by officers, yet training is severely lacking. Studies show that over 67% of resistance by subjects occurs after the first handcuff has been applied. All too often the result is injury and/or death to either the officer or subject. Additionally, the improper use of handcuffs is the focus of many civil suits.  Proper training in the use of handcuffs is vital to officers.

Aerosol chemical agents have been around for many years. The impact of the use of these chemical agents wasn’t significant until 1976 when Mr. Gardner Whitcomb introduced an Oleoresin Capsicum (pepper spray) formulation. At the request of Mr. Whitcomb, the first official OC training manual was co-written by Roland Ouellette and Ed Nowicki. OC has proven to be more effective than CS or CN, and as a result, numerous companies now manufacture OC aerosol sprays.

Since the introduction of the OCAT® “Oleoresin Capsicum Aerosol Training” program in 1991, thousands of instructors and countless basic users have been trained from agencies such as healthcare, federal, military, law enforcement, security, and corrections. The OCAT® program is not brand specific and addresses the proper use of all OC products.

Personal Protection Consultants Inc. owns and administers the OCAT® training programs through a network of In-House Instructors and Independent Instructor-Trainers.  PPC, Inc. instructors have many years of law enforcement experience, as well as nearly 20 years of OCAT® training experience.

What is Oleoresin Capsicum? Commonly called “Pepper Spray”, Oleoresin Capsicum is a convenient aerosol spray that is used as a protection device. When used before hands-on defense, there is less risk of injuries to all parties.

Effects of OC? OC affects the skin, face, eyes, and respiratory system and is usually immediately debilitating. This court-defensible deterrent is reliable and has no long-term harmful effects on the recipient. OC is widely accepted as a safe control option for human service personnel.
