Course description

Active Assailant/Shooter Preparedness and Response

Every organization must prepare for an attack by an active shooter and must know how to respond should an attack occur.

Vistelar, a world-leader in conflict-management training, offers comprehensive live and online training programs that address both active shooter preparedness and response. 

In developing this course, Vistelar drew upon on Dave Young’s (one of the company’s founders) 30+ years as a professional trainer in the Marine Corps and for law enforcement as well as the expertise of Vistelar’s other subject matter experts in conflict management.

Dave developed one of the first active shooter training programs for the Marine Corps in 1990. The content of this course is based on real-world experience, not academic theory (e.g., flawed strategies like “lock-down” are not discussed).
