Training Overview

A complete Spike training should provide an officer a classroom introduction to tire deflation devices, with your departmental policies regarding the use of such a device. Spike-Strip Mfg. also recommends two methods of hands on training a basic training can be conducted in a parking lot and a more advanced training on a closed road we call Track Training.

Classroom Training:

A Spike class should provide an officer an introduction to the safe use of tire deflation devices, and your departmental policies regarding the use of such a device. You should have a classroom introduction to the system and explanation of the hands on training plan for your department. Spike-Strip mfg. includes a Training manual with a plan for instruction and implementation of the systems. Customers are authorized to make copies for training.

Parking lot Training

Your Auto-Spike or Spike-Belt system can be used for training purposes in a parking lot. In the tabs labeled Parking lot training, we go over the basic operation and inspection in a series of Training scenarios. You can train on a Church parking lot, school parking lot, undeveloped street, or any area which is not in active use and can be closed or secured, as to not spike a car.

Track Training

A more advanced training method can be conducted on a roadway with moving cars and special un-spiked system. In the tab labeled Track Training we go over the methods, objectives and tips on conducting such a class.
