In response to recent events, Vegas PBS’ Global Online Advance Learning service is offering “Active Shooter Response” as August’s Course of the Month.
The first 1,000 students can receive the online course free with promo code YF9469J9; subsequent participants will still be able to take the course at a discounted price.
Between 2000 and 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigations identified 160 active shooter incidents in the U.S. Built with the assistance of national subject matter experts from the law enforcement community, the course is intended for any audience and can be applied anywhere -- work, school, home, etc.
The goal of the course is to provide life-saving knowledge during an active shooter event, including learning about warning signs, how people react, being familiar with your surroundings, protecting yourself and what happens when law enforcement arrives on scene.
