Currently, we offer six Safety-Awareness Programs, with more programs in development. Join the hundreds of others who have taken these courses to lessen their chances of becoming a victim of an attacker.

Civilian Safety Awareness Program

A violent attack can happen at any time. Violent attacks are 52 times more likely to occur than a car accident, 229 times more likely than your house catching fire, and 1,000 times more likely than being involved in a plane crash.  Numbers like these can be frightening, but the good news is there are ways to minimize your chances of becoming a victim.

The Civilian Safety Awareness Program will teach you how to take precautions and build habits to enhance your safety. This course can change your life and the lives of those you love.

 

Campus Safety Awareness

The Campus Safety Program empowers students to make their personal safety a priority while on campus. The program offers advice and practical applications that can be incorporated into daily campus life. A wide range of scenarios most students will encounter on a regular basis, both on and off campus are addressed. Here are a few of the many topics we'll discuss:

  • How to discourage dangerous threats
  • Ways to identify and avoid potentially dangerous situations
  • Protection at a safe distance
  • How to use victim-prevention products effectively and responsibly
  • Personal Safety: best practices for at-home and on-the-go

This course is a must for a loved one about to journey into the world on their own. Protect the one you love.

**We offer group-campus classes, tailoring each class to specifically cover each school or university's campus to provide the most comprehensive class for you and your fellow students.
