Casual Converstaions The objectives of this seminar will be to teach you the unspoken rules of oral communication and make you aware of how your nonverbal communication, such as gestures, stance, eye movement, facial expressions, demeanor, inflections, and attitude communicate our true inner most thoughts so that sometimes what you are saying non verbally conflicts with what you’re saying verbally and since 90% of all communication is nonverbal we need to be aware of that so we can somewhat control our actions and behaviors to make them more in sync with our verbal communication. By learning the unspoken rules of communication you will be able to communicate more effectively enabling you to have less stress and conflict in personal relationships, foster new friendships and relationships, drum up new business and networks, be able to successfully get your point across by allowing the person you’re conversing with (conversation partner or CP) to convey their complete thought without interruption, enabling you to be able to get the same in return therefore allowing a complete unadulterated thought process on both sides to be conveyed and reaching a compromise so that you and your CP will both win important points of the conversation so that everyone walks away happy.

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.
