The online portion of this AVERT blended learning course for students is a prerequisite to the classroom training portion.
Additional training in CPR. AED, and basic First Aid is highly recommended.
The goal of this training program is to help participants develop the knowledge and confidence to react quickly if active violence should occur,
AVERT is designed to include a significant amount of interactive participation.
