Active Shooter Drillsclick here to contact us about this course
Conflicts that arise in schools need rapid and effective response from those in positions of authority. It is with this in mind that policy needs to be put in place and rehearsed for worst case scenarios such as an active shooter in the building of a school. The purpose of this class is to provide those procedures with the maximum amount of security and least amount of risk to all involved.

Basic Self Defense TrainingSelf Defense
The ability to protect oneself and others from harm or serious injury must be paramount in the minds of faculty and staff while there is an active threat in the vicinity. The knowledge and application of tactics, techniques and procedures can mean the difference in halting a conflict before it becomes widespread.

Administrative Training
Identifying a potential threat is a skill set that can be effectively applied in the everyday workspace of faculty and staff. Often times the application of identifying threats can mean the difference between a serious conflict and a minor squabble, to even no conflict at all.

Intruder Response Training
During an active conflict within the school district, communication, policy and procedures must be adhered to so that safety and security can be attained. Rehearsal of these procedures gives school administers a statistical advantage in guaranteeing minimum loss of life or injury during an emergency. This class is specifically designed for each building in the district to deal with an intruder within the facilities. These procedures are meant to be a stop gap between an active conflict and the arrival of police officers.
