Course Description

This course provides a model framework to improve incident management and the integration of law enforcement, fire and EMS, public safety communications, public information officers, and emergency management responders during active shooter event response, improving time to threat neutralization, medical intervention, and survivability of victims. This is an integrated response course for a cross-discipline audience. The framework utilizes the Active Shooter Incident Management Checklist(TM), a validated and recognized National Standard for active shooter event response, integrating best practices guided by principles of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC), and Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT). Participants will learn organizational building blocks for an integrated response including Contact Team, Rescue Task Force, Tactical, Perimeter, Triage, Transport, Intelligence, and Reunification through progressively challenging full-length Active Shooter Event functional exercises utilizing the multi-responder NIMSPro TM 3D virtual reality simulator in multiple response roles. The course also introduces participants to Complex Coordinated Attacks (CCA) which includes the complexities of improvised explosive devices; an attacker who becomes static, barricades, or takes hostages; and a multi-modal CCA.


FEMA IS-100 and IS-200 are recommended, but not required.  A mixed-discipline instructor cadre is trained to coach participants to success regardless of rank and experience level.

Course Completion Requirements


A Pre-Test and Post-Test are given to measure participants’ understanding of the material. Participants are required to score a 70% or better on the Post-Test and attend 80% of the course hours in order to receive a course certificate of completion.

Registration and Attendance

Attendance is crucial in order to receive credit for this course. All participants must complete a registration form at the beginning of the course, sign the attendance roster for each day of the course, attend 80% of the course hours, and complete the evaluation at the end of the course in order to receive a certificate of completion.

Participants Must Provide

  • a photo identification on the first day of class. See the Participant Handbook for approved forms of identification and additional guidelines.

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed

Upon successful completion, you will be able to:

  • Apply key leadership roles and functions within an Active Shooter Event (ASE) response
  • Demonstrate response and management of Basic Complexity and Moderate Complexity Active Shooter Events in simulation-based practical exercises.
  • Demonstrate response and management of Complex Coordinated Attacks (CCA) in simulation-based practical exercises.
  • Demonstrate response and management of Moderate Complexity ASE that includes IED and/or an Attacker who becomes static, barricades, or takes hostages in simulation-based practical exercises.
  • Discuss case studies of multi-modal Complex Coordinated Attacks (CCA) and demonstrate response and management of a multi-modal CCA in simulation-based practical exercises.
