Project Description

Aerosol Weapons Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) Training

Class Time: 4 hrs

Class Cost: $70

Oleoresin Capsicum is a powerful non-lethal inflammatory agent that occurs naturally in cayenne peppers. This agent inflames the mucous membranes and causes an involuntary closing of the eyes. Physiological effects on an exposed person may be shortness of breath, tightness of the chest and a feeling of burning to the skin and eyes. Psychological effects include anxiety, fear and panic. The effects of OC vary from person to person and are not 100% effective in all cases.

This security guard training training is designed as an OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) training course to use any brand of aerosol weapons. Our teaching is based on the latest curriculum.

Through certified training, students will follow these objectives:

History of OC

Definitions and Components



Delivery Systems

Deployment Considerations and Use of Force

Contamination and Decontamination

Health Risks

Policy and Procedure Considerations

A voluntary exposure is not mandatory, but is recommended. Voluntary exposure will equip the student with a better understanding of the effects of OC and its decontamination procedures. Security guard training students who wish to be exposed to OC need to schedule extra time after classes to fully decontaminate before leaving.
