Corporate Safety Classes
Active Shooter Awareness
What would you do if an active shooter was nearby? Because there is often no pattern or method to the selection of victims by an active shooter, these situations can be unpredictable and evolve quickly. This course is designed to help people anticipate and prevent an active threat situation, and to learn to respond if one should occur. Students will learn about potential workplace-violence indicators and characteristics of active shooters.
Our workplace violence training course will help supervisors and employees identify the kinds of behavior and language that can escalate into violence. In this training session, students will learn to identify signs and symptoms of domestic violence. They will also learn techniques to de-escalate situations. Finally, they will be trained in security procedures to ensure the safety of employees during violent situations.
Workplace harassment can be based on a variety of factors, including race, sex, and disability. This course will give you the tools to recognize harassment, as well as understand your legal rights and responsibilities.
Verbal De-Escalation and Crisis Management
Students will learn and hone skills for defusing tension and preventing dangerous situations. Our De-Escalation & Crisis Management course is not related to a specific industry licensure or certification exam. However, it does teach best practices for managing confrontations and other potentially dangerous situations in the field of security.
Students will learn crucial conflict management skills, including dealing with anger and using the Agreement Frame. Handling conflict appropriately is an important skill set in any organization. If left unchecked or unresolved, conflict can lead to lost production, absences, attrition, and even lawsuits.
First Aid, CPR & AED
This course teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until paramedics arrive. These skills include: first aid; choking relief in adults, children, and infants; and what to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults, children, and infants. Students also will learn when and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). The course delivers simple-to-use techniques and information that can help you save a life.
