The seminar will address school and workplace violence, with a major emphasis on the active shooter.  Participants will learn how to respond to threats, what to expect from law enforcement’s response, what to teach your children about the immediate actions to take when confronted by an active shooter and what plans businesses and citizens should have in place in case an incident would occur. 

The seminar is designed for everyone, especially parents and those in the business and school community. It will help participants know what to do when confronted with an active shooter.  The cost of the class is $89.

The instructor for both seminars, Jason Wilterdink, has 15 years of experience as a Law Enforcement Officer.  In addition to his experience as a Law Enforcement Officer, he is currently a full-time instructor at LTC, a master instructor in use of force, and certified by several organizations as a firearms instructor and has served as an instructor and expert witness in self-defense, training, safety, security, health, wellness, and fitness.
