Due to high demand, two additional classes will be offered this summer. See below for feedback from guests who attended this training in April!

Everyone in your organization needs to be acutely aware and proactively involved in “hardening the target” of your workplace environment. Employees and employers need to be involved in preventing security risks and doing due diligence to protect the most valuable resource – people – as well as other related assets. 
This training session will cover a multitude of essential topics with the understanding that the instructors would develop a customized plan to teach the employers and employees at specific organizations/companies/churches the topics necessary to be better prepared in those workplaces in a future training session.

This training is also adaptable to any non-work environment - including, home, school, recreational, or similar situations.

Volunteers, Part-Time and Full-Time Employees, Clerical workers, Human Resource workers, Administrators and others at Businesses, Companies, Churches, Camps and other workplaces.
