Active Shooter Training – Empower your team

Active Violence Emergency Response Training (AVERT) gives you the tools to understand how to recognize warning signs, react quickly in an active shooter situation, and learn how to control bleeding in life-threatening situations. AVERT is active shooter response training with the addition of techniques on how to stop the bleed of victims. Ages 15+.

AVERT is even more than active shooter response training

When violence occurs, seconds count, and you cannot always wait for EMS to arrive. AVERT is an active shooter training course that also enables you to become an immediate responder by learning emergency stop-the-bleeding techniques. AVERT teaches how to: 

  • Recognize warning signs using situational awareness 
  • Decide whether to escape, evade or attack 
  • Apply critical stop-the-bleeding techniques 
  • Respond quickly and confidently in an emergency

Why does your organization need active shooter response training?

Active shooter incidents are unpredictable, and they can evolve rapidly. During the chaos, anyone involved can play a vital role in lessening the impact of an active shooter incident. Active Violence Emergency Response Training (AVERT) prepares your team with active shooter training resources that help you and your organization understand warning signs and respond to a potential active shooter incident.

Recent active shooter incidents have shown the importance of a rapid response. Every second counts when active violence occurs and active shooter training with AVERT teaches you the tools that allow you to quickly react and make decisions on whether to escape, evade, or attack.
