University Police at Southeast Missouri State University is offering free armed intruder training workshops for faculty, staff and students.
Armed intruder training imparts the knowledge necessary to improve the chances of survival in a critical event in workplaces and schools, and empowers individuals with tools to help themselves and others. A well-trained community is better prepared to mitigate and respond in a violent incident.
The two-hour Level 2 session includes the first hour presentation and a second hour of interactive scenarios. Participation in the scenarios is encouraged, but is not required. The Level 2 session requires a minimum of 10 participants.
All training sessions will take place from 10 a.m.-noon in the University Center Program Lounge. Fall 2018 semester sessions are scheduled for Sept. 13 and 26; Oct. 10 and 25; Nov. 8 and 21; and Dec. 5. Spring 2019 semester sessions are scheduled for Jan. 23; Feb. 6 and 20; March 6 and 27; April 10 and 24; and May 1.
Faculty and staff can register through Training & Development in Skillsoft at
Students can register at http://semo.edu/training/active-shooter.html (bottom right of the page).
Training is also available for Level 1 courses. Level 1 training delivers the program through instructor presentation and group discussion of practical scenarios. The Level 1 course takes approximately one hour and is ideal when time is limited or to obtain a basic understanding of the preparedness method.
