Active Assailant Readiness Training: Online Course

A recent study revealed that 60% of active shooter incidents ended before law enforcement arrived. Are you prepared to survive a violent event, and protect your loved ones?

We all would like to think it can’t happen to us, but the unfortunate reality is that violence does happen. As recent events have shown, there are often red flags that predict violent acts. Our training teaches you how to cultivate awareness, and to how to recognize the signs of potential violence. And, in case a violent event does occur, we teach you how to respond effectively- whether at home, at work, in church, or at school.

What you will learn-


Trident Shield begins by focusing on ‘Foundational Elements’ to equip you with the knowledge and confidence to recognize, avoid, or diffuse a situation before it ever reaches the point of violence.


Unfortunately, it is equally essential that you are properly educated in how to respond in a violent situation. Our course shows you how to prepare yourself and your loved ones for the quickest and most effective response in the event of an Active Assailant/Active Shooter.


The ‘Skills’ component of the course will cover crucial survival techniques. In these dynamic situations, no single action will be the ‘correct’ answer for everyone, so our goal is to equip each person with the ability to make their own informed and rational decisions to survive violent incidents.

Safety in all Aspects of Your Life

Throughout the training, the advice and techniques discussed will teach you how to apply the skills at home, in the workplace and throughout your personal life.
