Active Shooter Prepardness and Response Strategies Certification available for schools, daycares, businesses, churches, and hospitals.

Why us? We don't just tell you what to do, we come to you onsite and have a hands on component as well as a cognative component that can be done in person or with our blended online learning program designed by Dave Young with ARMA Training and Vistelar. We will show you and your staff how to do everything we show you.

Does your staff know what to do if an active shooter comes on the property? Do you have a policy in place on how to respond to such an attack? We teach you everything from the 1st Time clock of when the attacker gets on the property to the final time clock of when the police nuetralize the situation and emergency medical teams are taking care of the wounded. We show weapon disarms at the door, weapon disarms in the open, how to escape windows, barricade doors, immediate aid of injured persons, and a lot more.

Certification is good for 2 years and covers your facility in case an expert witness is needed during that period.
