Active Shooter Training
De-Escalation Training

On-Site Active Shooter/Violent Intruder Training:
Class, Seminar, or Workshop (1-8 Hours)

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

Offered in any length, from 1-8 hours, our training sessions for violence & escalation focus around our expertise in effective planning, prevention, and response strategies for violence. Our program delves into two primary types of aggressive human behavior seen in adults and students: reactive and targeted-based aggression. Within these two categories, humans progress through three key stages 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 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 all participants, with the highest possible retention rates. Our trainees leave able to actually act within a stressful situation in real life.

Our cadre of professional instructors who hold a variety of Law Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security, and Emergency Management training certifications.  

Each course/workshop is customized to your particular facility and the unique risks your team faces. Training sessions are delivered on-site, where it will be most effective.  

Our programs have been proven effective in higher education, K-12 districts, charter schools, city halls, courthouses, hospitals, manufacturing businesses, international ports, and office spaces.
