San Diego, CA

CPT Credit = 28 Hours

Join us at the California Association of Tactical Officers’ annual conference in San Diego! This year’s conference includes debriefs, practical application tracts, a maritime orientation course, presentations on topical issues, and certification courses. CATO’s annual conference has been completely overhauled, starting with a brand new location at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, located right on the waterfront. We’ve also changed the format and flow, focusing on smaller, more intimate groups, facilitating better interactions between presenters and students. Along with smaller class sizes, there will be 2 and 4-hour classroom presentations set up for maximum benefit, and a shoot house for prac app tracts. Presentations will be conducted multiple times throughout the conference, reducing scheduling conflicts and giving attendees the opportunity to select presentations they wish to attend and schedule/coordinate it with their respective teammates.
