Pugh Self Protection and Combatives Active Shooter Training Courses provide the highest level training and subject retention using a combination of classroom learning and hands-on experience that delivers both theory and 'learning by doing'. The hands-on training creates an immersive experience in a real-life, controlled environment, providing context for a subject that is scary and hard to talk about. The hands-on activities help create a cohesive team mentality, which makes it not only an invaluable training in terms of skills learned, but also a great team building exercise, perfect for the workplace! Pugh's theory of Active Shooter Response is progressive, training employees to take their lives into their own hands, helping build confidence, and self-reliance. Unlike the antiquated Run-Hide-Fight, participants are encouraged to take meaningful action instead of relying solely on emergency responders which sadly, often arrive too late.
