Tuition for the course includes all notebooks, handouts, and materials. This course is designed for both municipal and county jail personnel.

With the growing number of lawsuits being filed against jails, jail personnel and jail administrators, no agency that maintains a jail can afford not to send their jail personnel to this course.

Each student will also be required to participate fully in Chemical Aerosol training which includes a direct exposure to an OC product.
