Active Shooter Defense Training

Active Shooter Response Course

An “active shooter” as defined by the Department of Homeland Security is: “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and/or populated area.”

This course has been developed from the Texas DPS School Safety Training Act that draws from the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Program.

This course content is invaluable to anyone defending any type of facility (church, office, business, schools or other groups) against an active shooter encounter.

This provides a level of training unsurpassed in Texas. This is lifesaving information.

This course is beneficial not only for those who are looking to carry on premises, but also for those that have no intention of carrying a handgun as it teaches how to respond to an active shooter event.

This course is a two day (15 hour min) course and includes classroom simulation training and advanced live fire training. You must already have a license to carry to take this course.
