The impact of the use of these chemical agents wasn’t significant until 1976 when Mr. Gardner Whitcomb introduced an Oleoresin Capsicum (pepper spray) formulation. At the request of Mr. Whitcomb, the first official OC training manual was co-written by Roland Ouellette and Ed Nowicki. OC has proven to be more effective than CS or CN, and as a result, numerous companies now manufacture OC aerosol sprays.
Since the introduction of the OCAT® “Oleoresin Capsicum Aerosol Training” program in 1991, thousands of instructors and countless basic users have been trained from agencies such as healthcare, federal, military, law enforcement, security, and corrections. The OCAT® program is not brand specific and addresses the proper use of all OC products.
Personal Protection Consultants Inc. owns and administers the OCAT® training programs through a network of In-House Instructors and Independent Instructor-Trainers. PPC, Inc. instructors have many years of law enforcement experience, as well as more than 25 years of OCAT® training experience.
