CVSA Course Schedule | Certified Training for Police & Law Enforcement

Certified Examiners Course

Our Expert Instructors conduct the widely acclaimed and intensive five-day CVSA certification course, which is hosted by select law enforcement agencies across the USA. With a maximum of 25 students per class, there is ample hands-on instruction in the use of the CVSA®. Additionally, the specialized Defense Barrier Removal (DBR®) interviewing and interrogation technique developed by our founder is also taught. This technique, when utilized in conjunction with the CVSA® II, has proven invaluable in obtaining admissions and confessions, as well as clearing suspects.
