Should civilians in their everyday work environment have terrorism awareness training? Unfortunately the answer is yes. In today’s world there are unsuspecting dangers lurking around every corner. As we’ve, sadly, witnessed in every evening news cover story, there are unexplainable attacks happening everywhere. Everyday environments are proving to be popular targets as it creates the most chaos with the average civilian being completely unprepared and causes a trickle-down effect on our economy with the disruption. The patterns are also getting harder to predict. We find ourselves asking “why there” or “why that way” more often. No matter the reason it’s a hard reality to face. Creating awareness and being prepared is the only retribution we can do to fight back and not let it break us down.
Our Terrorism Awareness Course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to better prepare them for living and working in unpredictable security threat environments overseas. Participants gain the practical skills necessary to recognize, avoid, and respond to potential security threat situations. Participants will demonstrate the practical application of techniques taught in the course and gain experience in personal resilience, risk management, restraint defeat, situational awareness and threat prevention, aspects of personnel recovery, emergency medical care, improvised explosive device (IED) awareness, firearms familiarization, fire as a weapon, react to contact, self-defense for overseas and defensive/counterterrorist driving maneuvers. The final day of the course features reality-based scenarios that enable participants to test their skills retention as well as their abilities to react during crisis situations.
