Over half of all Active Shooter events in the US have been stopped by a citizen, or citizens. The reason for this is that many who carry out mass murder choose soft targets where there is likely to be little or no law enforcement presence. Because the average Active Shooter event lasts between 4-11 minutes, and average law enforcement response varies greatly; the responsible citizen has every right to be trained to confront an active shooter situation as they are the likely line of defense between an armed threat and unarmed innocents and loved ones. Using extensive law enforcement response training and research into the last 50 years of Active Shooter events as a model, Sage Dynamics has developed this course to provide the CCW community with a fundamental skill set that will enable them to act, if they choose, in the event of an active shooter and potentially stop the threat without waiting needless minutes for a law enforcement response.
Using the Simunitions FX system, students will be placed in real-world scenarios requiring them to demonstrate best judgment in the confrontation with an active shooter, identifying themselves to responding law enforcement, controlling a compliant threat, emergency evacuation of wounded, prudence in confrontation and recognizing possible pre-attack signs. This course is physically and mentally demanding and students should come prepared to train late with few breaks.
