TASERCON - More Than a Training Opportunity

August 17, 2022
“TASERCON is a first-of-its-kind training conference focused on the whole officer — not just on-the-job tools and tactics.” - Andy Wrenn, Head of Axon Training

TASERCON offers four training and development tracks to facilitate officer growth:

Attendees will learn strategies for achieving higher performance, stronger community bonds, and greater long-term impact.

They’ll also experience new tools and technologies, hands-on professional development, certification courses, and raw discussions around the biggest challenges facing public safety today — and tomorrow.

What Training is Available?

TASERCON utilizes hands-on training, professional development and certifications. TASERCON offers four training and development tracks to facilitate officer growth:

  1. Core TASERCON Conference Curriculum, with access to all sessions and conference experiences
  2. Body-Worn Camera (BWC) Certification, an add-on with an extra day to finish the additional certification
  3. Master Instructor School (MIS), newly reimagined and running simultaneously during TASERCON; students will get the opportunity to experience a selection of the core conference sessions and experiences
  4. Legal Defense Strategies and Partnerships, with sessions tailored for attorneys who are tasked with advising and defending agencies that use TASER energy weapons in the field.

The cost of attending TASERCON varies depending on the training options added to the core curriculum, but, no matter which options attendees choose, TASERCON will build de-escalation skills, muscle memory, mind mapping tactics and community engagement abilities that save lives.
