Officer Survival (8 hrs)
The duties of a security professional include protecting and serving the health and well-being of their clients, their property, and the public during their watch. These duties may require a security officer to either contact or confront people who may wish to do them or others harm. This 8-hour course of instruction will help prepare the security professional to defend and keep safe themselves, their teammates, and their clients in the event they are confronted by a violent or combative subject. This intensive course of instruction will include understanding situational awareness techniques, identifying threatening or confrontational speech and communication, reading dangerous or aggressive body language, maintaining a high condition of alert readiness, and responding to a physical threat which is intended to endanger the officer or others. However, the most important and vital skill set we will teach is the concept of tactful conversational techniques, diplomacy, and proven de-escalation techniques designed to verbally disarm and minimize the danger using effective communications to avoid a physical confrontation all together.
