In late July, SATAI held it’s Summer Conference in Henderson, Nevada. A special thanks to the wonderful officers at the Henderson PD who helped make this a success.
Our Winter Conference will take place January 17-19, 2019 at the Glendale Regional Public Safety Training Center. Be sure to come out on Thursday afternoon to watch several crash tests. While Friday’s agenda has not been confirmed, Jeff Muttart will be speaking on Saturday on selected topics in Human Factors.
In addition to speaking on Saturday, Jeff will be presenting his 5-day class on Human Factors. The class goes from Sunday, January 20 to Thursday, January 24. Seating is limited. The cost for SATAI members is $900 and $1100 for non-members. The class is eligible for 40 ACTAR CEU’s. Brochures are being sent out to members.
As always, if you have any questions or topics you would like to see covered, please let us know. I can be reached at satai_webguy -at- satai.com
