TargetSolutions’ Targeted Violence Considerations training course explores the threat of violence and how to adopt a survival mindset.

TargetSolutions has released a new interactive training course on how to handle targeted violence situations. Targeted Violence Considerations consolidates statistics and FBI studies to analyze why shooting events happen and how to adopt a survival mindset.

“Unfortunately, more and more these days we are seeing news coverage regarding Active Shooter situations worldwide,” said TargetSolutions Client Services Manager Jen Jones. “Knowing how to respond in an Active Shooter situation can be the difference between life and death.

“TargetSolutions’ new course, ‘Targeted Violence Considerations,’ provides valuable information regarding what to do in an Active Shooter situation. It can be used in conjunction with your organization’s Active Shooter resources to prepare your team.”

Topics of discussion in this course include:

  • Profile of active shooters
  • Preparing for targeted violence
  • Describing the targeted violence environment
  • Components of an action plan
  • Adopting the survival mindset
  • Interacting with first responders

Although fear and confusion are understandable during such a scenario, there are countermeasures that can be taken to escape a situation, including trying to escape, hide, and in some cases, even fight back. The No. 1 goal of this course, however, is to educate personnel on how to be as safe as possible when the unthinkable happens.

This 10-lesson course features a 10-question exam.
