​What would your staff do ​RIGHT NOW if faced with an Active Killer situation? ​Their life depends on it! Are you 100% certain everyone would know what to do?

Every time you turn on the news, there's has been another deadly shooting.  It makes you want to stay home with the blankets over your head!  Since that is not a viable option, how are you going to make sure that you and your staff are protected?

What if something happens today?

Does your staff know enough to stay alive until help arrives? 

You know that you can't wait any longer. You have to provide your business with this lifesaving information ASAP. Now that you've made up your mind to get answers, where do you turn?

Worse yet, unless you are in a security profession, you may not have the time or the network to help you sort through all of the chatter on the internet about training. It's almost enough to make you want to give up. We have the solution.

Survivor of the Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting

I knew what to do because I had had this class.

I saw people hiding behind their suitcases.  I found a concrete pillar instead and kept it between me and the shooter.

I can better protect my students.

Just after I took this course at Kickfit Martial Arts, we had a lockdown at my school.  Instead of just locking the door, I made a barricade.  I felt empowered.

What is in the Active Killer Prevention, Survival, and Countermeasures course?

This engaging course is broken into four main topics.  Each one plays a vital role in reducing liability for your business and increasing survivability for your employees.

1

Section 1: A Brief History of Active Killer Events

The best way to understand a problem is to study its progression and evolution. This section includes events from the 1960's until today, and examines each event's similarities and differences. Current actions and future trends are also discussed.

2

Section 2: Prevention

The best way to save lives is for an Active Killer event to not happen in the first place. This section covers multiple signs and symptoms exhibited by those thinking of harming others. Learning common pre-attack indicators and the phases that an Active Killer will go through will enable students to see potential problems and prevent violence from erupting.

3

Section 3: Survival

If you find yourself in a violent situation, how are you going to survive until help arrives? This section begins our GO-BARRICADE-FIGHT system. Learn how to find alternate exits, figure out the best place to make a stronghold, and discover ordinary items that can be used as improvised weapons.

4

Section 4: Countermeasures

What do you do if you cannot escape and cannot find a stronghold? You may have to FIGHT. This section covers tips and techniques to increase your chances of survival. Also included is what to do when police arrive, looking for secondary devices, and additional ways to protect your workplace.

There are many places providing training in Active Shooter Survival, from local police departments to martial artists to the Federal Government and others. How do you know which one to choose?  

SAI's Active Killer Prevention, Survival, and Countermeasures Course has been developed and refined by visiting crime scenes such as Parkland, Las Vegas, Southerland Springs, San Bernardino, Aurora, and others. Lead Instructor, Philip Ball, has personally interviewed survivors of mass shootings to discover how events unfolded and what they did to survive. He has also worked with health care professionals, military and law enforcement experts, teachers, psychologists and industry experts to bring practical, actionable information that can be used in both prevention and survival. Finally, he has spent many, many hours over the past two decades working with police officers on how to respond quickly and effectively to an Active Killer event. By understanding how police, fire and medical will respond to such a call, he is able to give valuable insight and direction to those who need to survive until help arrives.


So how much will cutting edge, comprehensive training cost?  The answer might surprise you.  Instead of $3,000 or more for a live training event, online training is extremely affordable.

Don’t wait! Look at what past students have to say about this course

Many students start class a little fearful. They are uncertain. By the end of class, they have heard from people just like them who have survived an Active Killer event. They have the tools and know how to increase their chances of survival. They now know that it is possible to survive, and they have the principles to follow in order to help them be a survivor, too. Fear of the unknown is now replaced by empowering strategies for prevention and survival.
