The Initial Conducted Energy Device (CED) Course is for currently sworn New York law enforcement officers. It is designed to provide the students with the knowledge and skills required to safely and effectively deploy a CED (aka TASER). It begins with an overview of CED technology and then progresses to pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment considerations of conducted energy devices.

The use of conducted energy devices (CED) in law enforcement has increased
dramatically over the last few years. Thousands of law enforcement agencies have
either begun conducted energy device deployment or have plans to deploy conducted
energy devices with their officers in the very near future. All officers who carry CEDs
need to demonstrate they understand CED agency policy and procedures related to its
use, as well as demonstrate handling and deployment proficiency. This, of course,
requires that officers be trained in the operation and application of conducted energy
Students participating in the training will be required to demonstrate
understanding of their agency’s CED policy to the instructor, particularly where
deployment of conducted energy devices is appropriate, and equally important, where
not appropriate. Students will also be required to demonstrate their knowledge of CEDs
by completing a written and practical exam.
The conducted energy device course is not intended to be the ultimate in training,
but provide officers with a basic foundation and awareness of the advantages,
disadvantages and limitations that exist when using the device. Upon completion of the
course, students will have an understanding of the basic principles of CED operation
and the knowledge and skills necessary to safely deploy a CED within agency
