The goal of the Active Shooter Exercise Development Workshop is to provide first responder and city, county, and state officials with the knowledge, skills and
abilities to lead an Active Shooter Tabletop Exercise.
Past Active shooter events have proven the need for realistic exercises delivered in the community. This course answers that need by providing a train the trainer (TtT) course on how to design and deliver a Tabletop exercise (TTX). This course will also provide template materials needed to deliver five(5) different TTXs, with one (1) of the five TTXs delivered in the afternoon of the training day.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
The active Shooter Exercise Development Exercise Workshop is a train-the-trainer course designed for individuals who may be responsible for developing and delivering active shooter tabletop exercises. Past events have demonstrated that a key point to effective whole community preparation includes coordination across all professional disciplines that have responsibilities in the event of an active shooter incident.
Attendees include but are not limited to:
- Law Enforcement
- Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
