TASER™ Certified Armorer Course & Identification, Prevention, Management, and Investigation of Sudden and In-Custody Death Instructor Course


Presented through the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office in San Bernardino, California

TASER International and the Institute for the Prevention of In -Custody Deaths (IPICD) have put together an entire week of training that includes the TASER Certified Instructor course, the TASER Certified Armorer course, and the Identification, Prevention, Management, and Investigation of Sudden and In-Custody Death Instructor Course. Qualified attendees may participate in any or all of the three programs.

The Armorer course will provide students with detailed information on how the M26 and X26 conducted energy weapons operate and how to maintain them. Topics covered will include:

  • Electrical outputs
  • Power sources
  • Weapon and cartridge tracking and maintenance
  • Weapon and cartridge nomenclature
  • Repair procedures
  • Holster issues
  • Troubleshooting
  • Data Downloads
  • Flammability issues
  • Post-use analysis
  • Other TASER products
The TASER Certified Armorer course will give students a more thorough understanding of:
  • How TASER devices operate
  • The electrical outputs of TASER devices
  • How to conduct preventive maintenance on the devices
  • How to properly care for batteries and ensure optimal performance
  • How to diagnose a malfunction
  • What repairs can be made in the field and how to do them
  • How to minimize turnaround time for weapons that need to be repaired at the factory.
  • How to track weapons and cartridges
  • How to conduct downloads and interpret data
  • Quality and safety measures in the manufacturing process
  • How to ensure safe compatibility of a TASER device with issued chemical sprays
  • Holsters and accessories
  • Warranty information
  • How to investigate and analyze an ineffective deployment
Departments with a certified TASER Armorer should experience fewer weapon malfunctions due to improper care, less weapon down time, and a more efficient TASER device management system.

The Identification, Prevention, Management, and Investigation of Sudden and In-Custody Death Instructor Course will prepare departments for effectively dealing with incidents of in-custody deaths with factual data, thereby avoiding false assumptions and innuendos.

Prerequisites: Only currently certified TASER Instructors will be admitted to the Armorer course. A two-day instructor certification course will be offered just prior to the Armorer course for those requiring certification.
