Countering the Mass Shooter Threat (Call to schedule consultation)
After taking this course, instead of wondering, "what can be done to stop this" our clients are able to say, "this is what we are doing to deter and stop these type of events from happening".
In this course, you will analyze data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine to determine what can learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm would have changed the outcome.
You will also determine whether gun-free zones figure into the planning of these mass murderers; whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference; and whether universal background checks or other proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings.
At the end, you'll be able to use this data and develop a comprehensive, realistic plan of action to help your organization deter, defend against and survive these type of tragedies.
Safe Teens Project
(Lunch & Learns, Education Seminars & Training Workshops)
Our surveys show most teens are untrained and unprepared to recognize and effectively respond to known and foreseeable threats to their personal health, safety, security, future and freedoms  ,,, as they navigate today’s complex, sometimes dangerous global society. 
Developed by attorneys, educators, law enforcement and security experts, Safe Teens Project courses  empower teens with situational and environmental awareness training, as well as threat assessment and critical thinking skills, often referred to as "Streetwise Survival Skills".

Crew Member Self Defense Training
U.S. Based Pilots & Flight Attendants Call for Details
Seemingly trivial matters often escalate into explosive situations within the confines of today's commercial aircraft. Management of willful, unruly and sometimes criminal passenger behavior can range from dumb to dangerous. 
Non-compliant passengers interfere with Flight Crews' safe operation of the aircraft, threaten physical harm to other passengers, cause delays, financial losses.
When surveyed, most passengers say they are unaware of compliance requirements and the legal implications which may follow infractions of Federal Regulations. This lack of knowledge is a constant source of frustration for Flight Crew and passengers. 
Our scenario based training courses; consider cause and effect of disruptive behavior, offer best practice suggestions and examine legal implications.
