Get The Best Training In The Country…

And Prepare Your Team In The Very Buildings, Classrooms & Hallways
Where An Event May Occur.

Our Training Received 4.9 Out Of 5.0 Stars By A Division Of Homeland Security.  The Highest Rating Ever Given To A School Intruder Response Program.



Strategos’ active shooter training is designed with the idea that you – the person on the scene when the attack occurs – are the true first-responder. What you do may determine who lives and dies that day.

While we’d like to think that people can rise to the occasion, it’s more accurate to state that people rise – or fall – based on the level of their training. Our natural responses to violent intruders are often completely at odds with what we need to do to prevail. Absent training, people have often:

  • Run toward the sound of gunfire to confirm that the threat was real.
  • Engaged in “normalcy bias” – denying that they’re under attack despite overwhelming evidence.
  • Freeze in place instead of taking fundamental actions such as locking a door.

We’ve trained more than 150,000 people (and counting). Knowledge is power – power to resist and prevail against a violent intruder.

When people are trained, they can respond to a threat with confidence and resolve.

Sedalia Public Schools

“I was very nervous about how the topic would be presented and I did not want to participate in the simulated intruder scenarios. However, today I am really glad I did. I left feeling empowered and grateful for what I learned. It was one of the best professional development training that I have ever attended.”

This course completely changed my thinking about an active shooter. Before I probably would have hidden with the kids in the bathroom, now I know to barricade and fight back.
