This course helps you prepare to respond to an active shooter situation. It begins by describing the typical character of active shooter incidents. It then explains how to determine the correct course of action in such a situation depending on the circumstances: escape, hiding in a secure location, or physically engaging with the shooter. The course then lays out the principles you should follow in relation to each of these options. Finally, you’ll also learn about what to expect and how to react when law enforcement arrives.
This course was developed with subject matter support provided by Eric L. Matson of Norsemen Training & Consulting Group, a global professional services company focusing on corporate, business, and personal safety training.
