School Training Courses

PLAN & PREPARE: SECURING YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT AGAINST MODERN THREATS

The modern school system must create an environment that not only allows for a positive learning atmosphere for its students and staff; it must also ensure that it is as safe as it can be for everyone. We must understand the potential threats to safety and security and know how to recognize and react to them. This course covers topics designed to prepare your district for these threats such as:

  • Security standards for your facility
  • Current technology and how it is used
  • Best practice procedures
  • Changing the culture to a security mindset
  • Working with the students and parents
  • The “internal” threat
  • The “external” threat
  • Properly performing drills

CRISIS IN THE CLASSROOM

Crises are often unexpected events. A crisis event can be brought on by a student, parent or other family member, staff member or intruder. Unfortunately, it is often our students that are the ones in crisis and threatening violence to other students or school staff. The early recognition that a potential crisis is imminent can lead to effective action and prevent or at least reduce its impact. Every day teachers, classroom aides, and administrators are called upon to intervene in crises which may become dangerous if not de-escalated properly.

The Crisis In The Classroom course will teach you how to:

  • Be able to define a crisis, de-escalate and understand a person in crisis
  • Control your emotions during a crisis (staying calm)
  • Influence and communicate with a person in crisis
  • Diffuse and resolve a crisis situation effectively

When students and staff are in immediate danger and the school “Crisis Team” does not have time to respond before the event becomes tragic, the staff member on the front line needs to have skills to assess, contain and diffuse the situation providing the opportunity for a safer outcome.

PLANNING THE ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILL

The number of active shooter/active killer incidents are on the rise nationwide and no one knows when or where the next attack will take place. Is your staff prepared to survive a deadly encounter? This class is a hands-on active shooter response training for everyone in your building. Our program goes well beyond the standard “Run-Hide-Fight” presentation. We look at the historical record of these kinds of attacks and find the lessons to be learned from each horrific event. Knowing how these attacks unfold can help you make the right decisions during a violent and chaotic incident.

We offer two distinct programs:

  • A classroom presentation where your staff will learn the tell-tale signs of the “internal threat”, a person with legitimate access to your facility, but who may be a danger, as well as the outside attackers who target your school. We cover how to evaluate these threats, when to report concerns and how to protect yourself during a violent event. This program also includes a walk-through where our instructors provide direct recommendations for surviving an active shooter.
  • Everything in the initial class with the addition of an actual on site “drill” using our highly trained role players. We prepare your staff to respond and survive a shooting event and then simulate an actual attack so your staff can use what they have learned in real-time.
