To register:

  1. Fill out an application
  2. If you've reviewed the BECOME A COACH page and filled out the application, you are in the pipeline for approval. It could take a couple of weeks for your application to be approved. If you do not hear back please email ask@blauertactical.com
  3. Once your application has been approved, you will receive an email with authorization code needed to register. (No one is accepted on the course until we have verified references and background) register for the course as soon as possible.
  4. You can secure your attendance for the course with a deposit (Minimum Deposit is $500), but you will not receive the Pre-Load package & videos until your tuition has been paid.
  5. Pre-load material: To prepare you for the course, we have produced 20+ pre-load instructional videos. Once you've registered and paid in full, we will send you a link to a password protected site where you will be able to access and view the videos.
  6. But I want to learn SPEAR? - We receive many emails asking about the difference between the PDR and the SPEAR certification. PDR is our commercial division and the SPEAR System certs are for the law enforcement & military community. There is an assumption that the PDR program does NOT include SPEAR - it does. Both programs integrate the essential elements of our startle-flinch conversion research.

We offer special pricing for past graduates of SPEAR courses as well as for police, military, firefighter and other active first-responders. Full details below.
