Defensive Tactics & Ground Combative Instructor Program
ILEA is now offering to bring the Defensive Tactics and Ground Combative Instructor programs to law enforcement agencies in Indiana. This new program will hopefully fill the need of certifying instructors for the upcoming, required Defensive Tactics in-service training changes, beginning January 1, 2024. Interested agencies must be able to meet Host Agency requirements listed below. Please contact Instructor Andy Weidner at email@example.com with any questions.
