"This training is perfect, the best I have ever seen. Bottom line, they gave us a fresh set of eyes and tools to draw from, rather than going along with our previous and ineffective training methods."

Active Shooter Training

On-Site Training Courses/Seminars for Violence

At the end of the day, the level of training your team possess -and the actions they take- will determine the outcome of any emergency. 

In summary, our curriculum for violence centers around our expertise in training effective planning, prevention, and response techniques for violence. Our training program hones in on two primary types of aggressive human behavior: reactive and targeted based aggression. Within these realms, there exist three key stages that humans progress through under conflict: anxiety, testing, and in rare cases, attack stages. Early recognition of these types of aggression, along with effective strategies to intervene in each stage (and before) encompass our core programs: Violent Intruder MED Training (attack stage), De-escalation Training (anxiety and testing stages) and Threat Assessment Team/EOP Creation (corporate prevention). Our training engages the deliberate brain function of participants through learning new recognition and response behaviors and then helps guide our trainees to “automatic” brain function: being able to actually act within a stressful situation in real life.

All of our training courses are taught by a cadre of professional instructors who hold a variety of Law Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security, and Emergency Management training certifications.  

All of our programs are customized for your specific business and delivered on-site, where it will be most effective.  Our programs have been proven effective in city halls, court houses, hospitals, manufacturing businesses, international ports, and office spaces.
