The International Association of Correctional Training Personnel (IACTP) awards outstanding programs focusing on strategic, humane de-escalation training. IACTP is committed to supporting and improving training programs by providing mentorship, networking, and resources. They award programs that recognize the successful implementation of training in correctional officer training programs to share successful practices and continually improve our nation’s public safety.

The Controlled F.O.R.C.E. MACH 5.0 System

Controlled F.O.R.C.E. is the developer and sole source provider of the Mechanical Advantage Control Holds (MACH 5.0) system. The MACH 5.0 system is a series of five techniques that use the positioning, movement, body momentum, and resistance to control a subject. Because the system emphasizes mechanical advantage over pressure points or pain compliance, the techniques work on any subject regardless of size, strength, skill, psychological state, level of intoxication, or chemical influence.

MACH 5.0 is now recognized as one of the country’s most sought-after training programs for military combative, law enforcement arrest, control tactics, and the development and integration of basic and advanced training doctrine. It is widely accepted by law enforcement agencies as a legally, medically, and technically acceptable technique.

Over the past year, Controlled F.O.R.C.E. has delivered hundreds of training hours to correctional personnel across the county, including customizable training solutions for high-risk events inside corrections facilities. Their training programs have now been implemented in over 15,000 law enforcement, government, and private sector professionals at all levels of skill in both domestic and foreign environments.

Controlled F.O.R.C.E.’s training ensures quality, scalability, and standardization to support the development of correctional personnel so they can operate safely and effectively daily.

“What sets Controlled F.O.R.C.E. apart is our commitment to providing high-quality, customized training solutions that are designed to meet the specific needs of each client we work with,” explained Diana Grano, President and CEO. “The IACTP Commercial Training Program of the Year award is a huge accomplishment for our company, and it’s a direct result of our team members’ hard work and dedication.”
