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 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.
