School Violence & the Active Shooter

Santa Rosa, CA

PSTI is a DHS Training Vendor (Department Homeland Security)



This 4 hour course is designed for school administrators, faculty and staff, with responsibilities for Emergency Preparedness and Response, to address the threat of an active shooter and other violent critical incidents on school and college campuses. We highly encourage attending with local law enforcement stakeholders. 

It is a fact that the actions of school faculty during a critical incident will save more lives than emergency first responders. Statistically, once a shooting starts a life is taken every 15 seconds. It is imperative that school faculty act quickly when implementing a response to school violence.


During this course, attendees will receive informative presentations on the history and dynamics of school shootings, Awareness - Preparation & Response tactics for educators and staff, behaviors of concern & reporting strategies, defensive classroom mindset and the law enforcement response.
