Subject Control, Defensive Tactics, and Self-Defense topics are covered in most of the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission (OPOTC) basic programs. For the Peace Officer Basic Training (POBT) and Private Security (PSA) programs, there were significant changes to the OPOTC student performance objectives, lesson plans, and proficiency testing procedures within this topic. Similar changes will be taking place in the Corrections and Jailer programs. These changes and others, will be covered in a mandatory instructor update that must be completed before July 1, 2013. This course, Subject Control Instructor Update, fulfills the update requirement for all instructors, regardless of the program they are teaching in. For example, if you are certified to teach Subject Control in POBT, Subject Control in Corrections, and Unarmed Self Defense in PSA, attending one Subject Control Instructor Update course will fulfill your update requirement for all three programs.
