Course Overview
ITAC’s Master Course (SOT-M) is designed to teach security officers how to react in high-stress situations when countering various threats. This course was created for security officers who work in higher risk locations that are more prone to external threats, such as banks, maritime, etc. These officers need additional security knowledge, tactical skills, and combat principles to help them navigate high stress, complicated scenarios that may occur on the job. 

This course is a combination of tactical communication, de-escalation, and Krav Maga, which will teach you how to deal with suspicious behavior, control a suspect, disarm a perpetrator, and more. In addition to your training, you will receive an exposed gun permit with this course. We recommend you complete the Certificate Course prior to joining the Master Course, however it’s not required.
