When out in public locations, your safety and the safety of others depends on your response skills when someone attempts to commit mass murders. The police cannot protect you everywhere at all times. This ten hour course covers what to do before the police are able to respond, and includes avoidance and escape as well as responding with your concealed handgun. Extensive discussion of utilizing the floor plans of your work, your church, and other public areas you visit are included in the course. The complexities of shooting threats in situations that include other people in close proximity to you are also discussed and practiced.
The class includes scenario-based “force-on-force” practice with provided airsoft handgun replicas. This practice orients you to avoiding, evading, and defending yourself against active shooters. Real firearms are not utilized in this course.
Interactions with arriving police are an important topic in this course. Knowing what to do when the police arrive is critical for your safety and the safety of those around you. Interacting with police during high stress events is very unforgiving, so having effective knowledge about this could prove to be invaluable in the future.
Upon completion of this course, you will be better prepared for efficient action should a disgruntled employee attack your workplace. You will have a much better idea about what to do should a shooter attack a shopping mall you’re visiting, a church you’re attending, a music concert you’re attending, or a school you’re attending or visiting. Having the knowledge of what to do, where to go, and how to help others during such events is crucial.
Group scheduling of classes is encouraged. Employees who work together and members of churches who attend together are two good examples of groups who would benefit from training together. Policies and procedures can be developed after completing this course for use at these sites.
Firearm safety rules and instruction in handling handguns are reviewed and then applied throughout the course while using the airsoft handguns. The instructor has taught these concepts to many students, both law enforcement and public sector, for more than 30 years. There are no prerequisites for attending this course. The course fee is $180.00 per student, with discounts for three or more students who register at the same time.
