This program is the most current and updated program in the industry today and is designed to recertify CAP Instructors on the handling of chemical aerosol projectors, including effective and safe use, documentation requirements, medical issues, and legal liability — of any brand. It teaches partner drills for the safe and effective deployment of these devices. Upon request you can receive a factory certification from Guardian Defense Sprays.
