The objective of this course is to certify instructors in civilian active shooter response. This course will cover situational awareness, mental preparedness, history of active shooter events, psychological and physiological effects of a violent encounter, training mistakes, proper training defined, active shooter statistics/history, U.S. Dept. of Education and Homeland Security federal guidelines, fundamentals of blood control, and a comprehensive breakdown on the current federal guidelines of Run, Hide, Fight. The training will also involve interactive demonstrations, scenario-based training drills, and the student will be required to instruct during a portion of the training.
This is a two-year certification course.
The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 14-day prior notice to the event when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend should be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than 14-day notice will be subject to a ($40.00) cancellation fee. We will charge no shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been received. We offer one-year future course credit for any no show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of May 1, 2020, and you or as a representative of your agency agrees to the above policy by registering for this course. BSTS LLC sends email notifications of course cancellations or venue changes to the registered student email prior to the event, and will not be responsible for travel expenses related to these events. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which potentially removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, which is figured into our travel cost as well. The lack of communication by officers that don’t attend or register without department approval is the reason this policy exists.
