Praetorian Digital, a digital media company in the public safety and local government market, recently announced that TASER International has selected the company’s PoliceOne Academy learning management system and training platform as its exclusive delivery channel for all online training and certification management for its TASER less lethal weapons, Axon body camera, and other training.
According to the Praetoria’s website, the collaboration between PoliceOne and TASER will enable law enforcement trainers worldwide to search and register for live training events, complete and manage their TASER certifications and access customized TASER and Axon online training courses. The platform will also offer select courses from PoliceOne’s vast library of law enforcement training relevant to TASER products.
TASER trains more than 10,000 law enforcement instructors on an annual basis. These people go on to insure those who carry TASER less lethal weapons within their government agencies or private organizations meet their training requirements. TASER devices have become nearly ubiquitous in law enforcement and are deployed in more than 17,800 of the 18,250 US law enforcement agencies and 107 countries. Additionally, TASER will be offering custom training courses and certifications for officers and the more than 3,500 departments that have deployed TASER’s Axon body-worn camera solutions and Evidence for evidence storage and management.
“The PoliceOne Academy was built ground-up to meet the unique management and certification needs of law enforcement agencies, so it’s exciting to see the platform being adopted by one of the leading technology companies in the market to streamline their training efforts,” said Alex Ford, CEO of Praetorian Digital and PoliceOne.com. “TASER has long been a valued partner of PoliceOne and Praetorian, and they share our belief that there is an incredible need both in the US and worldwide for quality, effective law enforcement training both for products and tactics. We’re proud to offer our technology to help deliver and track that type of mission-critical training content.”
TASER has spent a vast amount of time evaluating top learning management system (LMS) vendors, ultimately choosing the PoliceOne Academy platform based on its proven performance in the market, ability to satisfy specific law enforcement workflow requirements and flexibility to scale with TASER’s needs over time. With the PoliceOne Academy platform, TASER will be able to provide customized training for every customer across its TASER weapons, Axon cameras and Evidence.com product offerings.
The company’s network of websites and proprietary learning management system deliver expert content, mobile solutions and online tools that facilitate information sharing, enhance effectiveness, mitigate risk and streamline training.
