Escaping Violent Encounters Instructor Course

Program Description

The DT4EMS/ EVE Instructor Course is a “Doctor Approved”, medically directed 40-hour course. It is both physically and mentally demanding. We strongly suggest candidates evaluate their physical limitations prior to attending the course.

The first portion of the course will be discipline specific EVE4HP or EVE4EMS/Fire Course modeled by the EVENT (EVE National Trainers). The 8 or 16 hours modeled, may be a review for those who have attended EVE course in the past. While there is no requirement to have attended an EVE course in the past, instructor candidates must attend the entire 40 hour offering.

After a modeling of the course, the participants will be presented with DT4EMS’ unique  “how- to” teaching style of our Escaping Violent Encounters (E.V.E.). Lastly, participants are given homework assignments for student teaching. After each presentation by the instructor-candidates, feedback is provided by instructors and peers.

In our experience this gives the instructor candidate the tools necessary to prepare for teaching E.V.E. at their agency.
