iPREP Program Awarded Accreditation

By IPREP - December 6, 2016 6:43 pm

For Immediate Release


The International Performance Resilience and Efficiency Program  (iPREP) has been awarded several accreditations from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine.

Accredited courses provide excellent learning experiences for professionals looking to stay up to date in their field. The University of Toronto’s (U of T) Continuing Professional Development (CPD) department in Faculty of Medicine accredits programs that meet the academic excellence and value expected from U of T.

U of T accreditation involves a peer review of the academic process to certify that the curriculum is rigorous, scientifically sound, and qualifies for continuing education credits for participating healthcare professionals. All Continuing Professional Development programs undergo this quality review process.

Upon completion of the peer-review, successful programs are approved by the Faculty of Medicine’s Continuing Education Directors and Leaders Committee and the Faculty Council Continuing Education Committee (FCCEC). The committees review each program for its attention to educational principles, such as: needs assessment, clear objectives, appropriate format, evaluation strategies, and conflicts of interest.

Program Design

iPREP training is a critical tool for first response and use of force professionals working in high-pressure situations.

Training includes classroom and dynamic scenario instruction. Participants will be provided with a workbook for notes and reference materials.

Learners will gain hands-on experience in the instruction and application of evidence-based techniques that improve use-of-force decision-making during critical incidents.


Learning Objectives

iPREP will…

  • Teach Use of Force instructors practical, easily implemented techniques to improve job performance in front line officers,
  • Provide an efficient method for integrating evidence based training into Use of Force programs at their home agency,
  • Teach Use of Force instructors how to incorporate the science of stress physiology and learning for better student understanding, retention of knowledge and skills, and performance on the job,
  • Give Use of Force instructors tools and techniques for individualizing training within a group setting.


Learner Outcomes

Upon completion of an iPREP Train the Trainers course, Use of Force instructors will develop:

  1. a demonstrable understanding of stress physiology,
  2. an understanding of stress physiology’s impact on performance,
  3. the skills needed to mediate this impact (collectively known as “iPREP skills”),
  4. a thorough understanding of iPREP training methods (collectively known as “iPREP delivery”) and the science that supports the methodology,
  5. the ability to integrate iPREP skills and delivery into their home agencies training programs.
