This course was created to change how you think about active threat and other violent events. It allows you to create multiple plans for responding, provide behavioral pattern detection training to help identify and either prevent or mitigate the event and assure that you are both physically and mentally capable of following through with your plans should it become necessary. This course will allow you to get more out of your tactics and weapons training.
If we fail to train our minds, we will fail to act because we do not expect anything to happen. It is impossible to will our bodies to do extraordinary things when we have yet to make the decision that we will have to do them. A plan and training are worthless if we cannot will ourselves to act on them.
The objective of this course is to provide civilians with a basic insight into behavioral pattern detection, how it can be used in their daily routine, and why it is important. The course offers practical application to assist participants in evaluating and appropriately identifying suspicious behavior. Upon completion of this course, participants will better understand the importance of situational awareness and how behavioral pattern detection can be used to protect one’s self, place of employment, and community.
This course was created based on the desire for companies to protect their most valuable assets; their employees. Security must be a part of everyday work-life and is the responsibility of every employee. This course provides comprehensive guidelines for mid to executive-level managers, allowing security to become part of an existing healthy culture and facilitates an environment that promotes a mind shift change for employees.

I have been teaching and mentoring in one capacity or another for more than 20 years. Whether as a subordinate or a project lead for a team of subordinates; a manager for a Fortune 500 company or one of its entry-level employees; or an instructor in a foreign country or a volunteer; my goal is always the same, respect and facilitate.
As adults, my participants come with a vast array of experiences and knowledge. They have so much to contribute, not only to the course topic being presented but also to the other participants and even myself. In my courses, everyone is an instructor because they all bring their own unique experiences. It is through sharing those experiences and facilitating learning among peers that true knowledge is gained.
There are many times I may only get one opportunity to interact with participants. It may be a two-week course in a foreign country or a local business that only has time for one hour of training. This means my interaction must be that much more impactful. I need the information I am sharing to stay with them: And as an instructor, it doesn’t matter how much of an expert you are in your field if you cannot effectively share it with your participants.
I do this in two ways. First, I try to make my content as interactive as possible. I need participants to engage and get them to apply the tactics and techniques to real issues they have faced. I want them to be curious, hungry for more information, and encourage them to take what they have learned and not only apply it to their daily lives but to also continue to learn and improve upon their knowledge base. Second, how I treat others impacts their willingness to learn. Maybe they will not recall every detail I presented, they will, however, recall how they were treated. Participants who enjoy the instructor, enjoy the overall learning experience and want to continue learning. Those who do not, won’t.
