Training Programs

Is a Classroom Lecture the Same as Hands-on Training?

The answer is simple…NO!. You can’t say you know how to drive a car if you’ve only sat in a classroom and have never been behind the wheel. This is why simulation training is imperative for employees. Each program is designed per your requirements and per the current skill level of your employees. We design programs from simple self-defense classes to military-grade training. Our programs are flexible and designed to prepare employees to survive an assault in their workplace. Our training programs give employees the necessary skills to handle such critical situations.

Survival is the focus of the programs. Our Instructors are not trying to create heroes. They are trying to keep people alive. Our programs are approximately 75% physical activity, which includes simulated mock drills in the form of hands-on training with weapon disarms, other decided curricula, and approximately 30% interactive discussions and questions. Our Instructors provide a more specialized, more effective training regimen than other programs on the market.

Our Instructors use active simulations to impart quality training to participants. Training also includes critical care protocols to assist the wounded. Instructors also save time for Q&A; when time permits, they share real combat stories from the battlefield or provide insights into various intelligence programs and strategies. Training is far from boring the way classroom instruction, online courses, and lectures typically are.
