GPS To Bring Active Shooter Response Training To Chattanooga

  • Thursday, May 25, 2023
Girls Preparatory School and the ALICE Training Institute will offer ALICE Instructor Certification Training in Chattanooga on Aug. 2 and 3. The course will be held on the GPS campus in Caldwell Commons.

Officials said, "This two-day instructor course teaches proactive response option survival strategies for violent critical incidents to ensure a trauma-informed approach to civilian active threat response training. The goal of the ALICE program is to empower individuals to participate in their own survival in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives.
The age- and ability-appropriate training and robust resources make it the best training in the market to bring to our community."

“As the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is our number one priority, we are pleased to offer ALICE Certified Instructor Courses on our campus,” says Megan Cover, head of school. “We welcome members of our community to take this opportunity to be better prepared to be proactive with options-based strategies and training.”

Officials said, "ALICE Training is a solution of Navigate360 and is a valuable course for everyone: law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses and places of worship. Completing the ALICE Instructor Certification course provides individuals with certification in ALICE proactive options-based responses, preparing them to take those same strategies back to their organizations and communities. Additionally, registrants will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources and ongoing support. The price of the training is $749 per person, and registration can be completed online here.

"ALICE is aligned with recommendations from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Education, Federal Bureau of Investigation and many State government agencies."
