To better prepare local businesses, schools, and employees for active shooter situations, Cape Cod Community College is inviting community members to its second annual “ALICE Active Shooter Instructor Training Course” to be held on the College’s West Barnstable Campus on July 16 and 17 from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Hosted by the Cape Cod Community College Police and Public Safety Office, the two-day training course costs $595 and is taught by ALICE Certified Instructors. The course is designed to teach workplace administrators and employees the skills and strategies that bridge the gap between the time a violent event begins and law enforcement arrives. Those who complete the course earn “ALICE Certification,” a two-year certificate that notes expertise in emergency response during an active shooter situation.
ALICE, which standards for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate, is the national leader in active shooter civilian response training for organizations. Their training institute works to empower civilians to make their own life-saving decisions by giving them the proactive skills necessary to improve their chances of survival in emergency scenarios.
Enrollment in the two-day course is open to the public, but seats are limited.
