Combined Active Shooter / Threat Response

About the Course

The Active Shooter/Threat Response training combined with Reflex Protect® User training provides participants knowledge and skills for before, during and after an active threat to increase survivability based on the Escape-Deny-Defend Triangle.

Two Free Trainer Certifications

This combined training comes with two Trainer Certifications. The Reflex Protect® Trainer works with your organization’s designated trainers to ensure once provided with the online resources, your trainers are comfortable that they can train others in the use of Reflex Protect®. Your trainers each receive a 2-year Reflex Protect® User Trainer certification to train members of your organization.

If your organization needs more than two trainers, additional trainer certifications can be purchased, and the Reflex Protect® Trainer will work with all designated trainers. Please discuss with a Reflex Protect® representative to ensure your organization gets exactly what you need.
