This course is offered in two delivery options: a 4-hour “Awareness” training program and an 8-hour “Full Spectrum” event. Depending on the training requirements and goals of the client organization, either training option provides deep insight into the appropriate response options the concerned citizen will use to save their life during this emergent threat.
Awareness courses are purely academic and are delivered in a classroom/lecture setting and include video footage from actual active shooter intervention incidents, along with incident analysis, and reviewing the evolving threat. Your response options are dictated by the actions of the attacker and we provide you with the tools to prevail.
Full Spectrum courses start with the same Awareness class, then add 4 additional hours of basic trauma response techniques and procedures and culminate in situational training exercises that force the participants to problem solve simulated active shooter events. Stress levels are raised and pain penalties can be introduced (“AirSoft,” or full-fledged UTM simulated training ammunition are employed, if requested) to add a level of realism unavailable to most people. This training is conducted under subject-matter experts who have direct experience and certifications to ensure you are safe at all times.
Depending on the intended audience, best practices for educational settings, hospitals, houses of worship and corporate spaces are tailored to suit the client.
All elements of this class and scope of work may be tailored to the suit the client organization’s needs, specific environment, capabilities and limitations.
Guest Instructors include local law enforcement patrol officers or SWAT team members, when available. In addition, medical training and scenario training is enhanced with subject matter experts.
- Basic trauma response medical training provided by experienced Tactical EMS, ER medical professionals or by military combat medics.
- Scenario training events are conducted with current or former law enforcement trainers to replicate the active shooter experience as closely as possible.
