Seperate Training Programs For Faculty & Students

Online and In-Person Training Designed With Our Audience In Mind

High school aged students are old enough, smart enough, big enough, and mature enough to be part of the solution when it comes to avoiding and responding to violence in the school. That's why we created two distinct training programs: one for faculty and one for students.



A comprehensive active shooter training course on violence in the school environment to train your faculty and staff how to prevent or respond to an attack. Your team will learn to recognize concerning behaviors in a student to head-off potential violence, how to respond in a manner that will keep themselves and their students safer during an attack, and much more.

Students should not have to rely on the guidance of their teachers during these chaotic events, which is why we developed a version of our school course specifically for them. From being empowered to recognize and act upon warning signs in a peer, to learning how to barricade themselves safely within their classroom, this course provides essential, life-saving information to your students.

Parent Involvement

We know that this is a highly sensitive topic and that it is natural for parents to be concerned about what their children are being taught. Parents are welcome to attend the live training sessions or to go through our online course prior to their child. For students middle school-aged and younger, we recommend that parents take the training ahead of their child and then share the information as they see fit.

With Active Shooter Readiness, Don't Settle For 'Check the Box' Alternatives

You Think Professionals Are Expensive? Try Hiring An Amateur.

Your people are scared. They want to know that you have a plan and care enough to invest in training that could someday save their lives. Take action today to address your faculty's concerns. When done correctly, a comprehensive School Violence Program, to include training, policies and procedures, will alleviate the fears of your teachers and strengthen your school's culture immeasurably.


When designing our programs and services, we left no stone unturned when considering how to support a school like yours in implementing a safety initiative. The result of this effort is that we are not your 'check the box' solution. We will never be satisfied with giving you partial answers that only scratch the surface of this issue and leave your educators more confused and scared than they were before we started. The quality and depth of our content reflects that principle. From our implementation guide with suggested language on messaging to your team, to a cultural analysis during our site assessments to ensure we recommend solutions you will actually use, to the deliberate use of emotional intelligence in our training, our goal is to make your program as effective and well-received as possible.

Simply put, we are experts at eliminating fear. Let us take away yours today.
