Active Shooter and Violence in the Workplace Seminar @ Greensboro - High Point Marriott
Mar 4 all-day

Registration will open on January 6.

PROGRAM INFORMATION

We are partnering with Blue-U Defense on this training, and will be broken into three segments:

  • Surviving an Incident of Violence/Active Shooter
    This course is typically provided as a foundation level course for banks, large corporations, insurance companies and associations of all sizes. Successfully surviving a sudden incident of violence is 90% mental and 10% physical skill. This course focuses on the 90% mental while concurrently providing skills to survive the 10% physical, as a last resort.
  • Advanced Workplace Violence – Prepare to Win! Practical and Effective Tactics and Defense
    This is an advanced course that will feature hands-on drills, scenarios, criminal mind and lecture, to show attendees how powerful the tactics that we teach are, and to show, through actually doing them, that they absolutely work! Attendees will see both the role of the “good guy” and “bad guy,” to get both perspectives. Attendees will more clearly understand the tunnel vision, OODA Loop, tactics, etc that we are teaching our students to understand and overcome.
  • Physical Site Security and Compliance with Bank Protection Act 
    During this session, instructors will discuss how to conduct your own physical site security assessments utilizing their method. Their method does not entail looking at what many other organizations are looking at such as cameras, lighting, card readers, etc. Their theory is your building is your building, your people are your people, and your layout is your layout. So, how do they take what you currently have and, without spending any more money, significantly increase the safety and security of those people inside – your most valuable assets? The instructors will cover this and more!
