This 14-hour course is designed to provide law enforcement first responders, CIT officers,
school resource officers, mental health professionals, crisis negotiators and tactical
operators a behavioral composite of school shooters in the United States — sometimes
referred to as the ‘Classroom Avenger” or “Rampage School Shooter.”
The lecture portion will begin with a discussion of the “Pathway to Intended Violence”
with a historical review of school shooters in the United States and a perspective on
what each of those incidents have in common from an operational and behavioral
standpoint. We will also discuss the psychological and sociological aspects of the
“Classroom Avenger” with special emphasis on mental health factors, communication and
de-escalation techniques. The presentation will address the typologies of the “Rampage
School Shooter” with examples of each. The presentation will outline intelligence
gathering and communication guidelines for a stand-off.
The practical portion will consist of an intense team-oriented, scenario-driven exercise
based on an actual event. Up to 6 teams of 4-10 persons will participate in a non-evaluated
exercise. Attendees may participate with their own team, form an ad hoc team,
participate as a facilitator or observe.
Expendable supplies will be provided. Equipment available upon request.
Although this course is intended for crisis negotiators, school resource officers, CIT
officers, mental health professionals and tactical operators are welcome to attend.
Certificates will be provided for those individuals who attend both days and who register
This course is not an ‘active assailant’ course, nor is it intended to suggest that
communication is an acceptable alternative to an active assailant situation.
This course is designed to give responders and others in a position to intervene
a broader understanding of the pre-incident behavioral indicators, subject
motivation, dynamics of the incident and practical guidelines for mitigation.
Absolutely no walk-ins please.
NOTE: There will be a registration option for Day 1 only. Attendees who wish to
participate in Day 1 only will receive an abbreviated certificate.
