WEST EDUCATIONAL COURSES

Training Never Stops

The best never rest, and neither do threats. Whether you’re a Program Manager, Procurement Specialist, or end user, the key to success is staying ahead of the curve through continuous training. Our courses are custom-tailored for different agencies. We cut out irrelevant details and focus on the scenarios you’re likely to face.
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: Building Custom Solutions for Urgent Operational Needs

Do you have unmet requirements that can’t be fulfilled with existing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) items? Unmet operational requirements occur when a problem goes unidentified, the right solution doesn’t exist, or funding isn’t available. ADS’ team of experts and partner suppliers work tirelessly to research, develop, and integrate new products that solve a problem, leverage existing legacy systems and are easily procurable. In this class, bring your most challenging requirement and learn how ADS’ product development approach can serve you.

HUMAN RESOURCES: Leveraging Your Strengths

In this session, you will learn the theory behind the four most common communication styles, identify your preferred communication, and learn how to adapt your style to improve communication and decrease conflict to get better performance results.

CONTRACTS: Rapid Acquisition in Times of Crisis

Recent crisis’ such as the Austin bombing, Vegas shooting, natural disasters, and rapid deployments, all have one thing in common—equipment was needed and FAST! Equipment that the DoD, military and federal agencies otherwise wouldn’t have or need access to. From Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC) and service-specific contracts to tailored solutions, learn how ADS leverages agile and flexible procurement solutions to meet your needs in a time of crisis.

S&L: Adoption of Battlefield-Proven Technology

What was once disarming a gunman has evolved into disarming an IED. Law enforcement’s call of duty is to keep innocent citizens safe and that can only be done with the latest technology and equipment. Active shooters, domestic terrorism, the proliferation of drones, and the home manufacturing of illicit drugs are a few examples of why the role of a first responder is even more dangerous than just a few years ago. In this brief lecture followed by a Q&A panel, attendees will learn how this landscape is predicted to change even more in the coming years and how to best equip their teams for the unexpected.

MEDICAL: Stop the Bleed, by the Raytom Group

Stop the Bleed is a campaign to educate the public on how to effectively reduce blood loss in an injured patient. It can be taught to any and all skill levels. The Raytom Group specializes in instructional services in medicine and TacMed. Stop the Bleed in service will cover the following:

  • Identifying different types of bleeding
  • Methods to control these types of bleeds
  • Treating the patient post bleeding control
  • Basic, advanced, and field craft methods to control difficult bleeds
LEADERSHIP: Becoming the Sheep Dog, Featuring Celebrity Guest Speaker Tim Kennedy

There are three types of people in this world: the wolf, the sheep, and the sheepdog. The wolf is violent, the sheep is passive, and the sheepdog is there to protect one from the other.

Featured celebrity speaker, Army Green Beret, and UFC ranked middleweight fighter, Tim Kennedy, will speak about how to overcome fear, how to get up and learn from losses, how to recognize strengths and weaknesses, and how to become the sheepdog.
