The University of New Mexico is partnering with a national defense training center to teach people how to handle an active shooter situation.

Global One Defense is offering a one-day, immersive and interactive Active Shooter Survival Training through UNM Continuing Education on June 24 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“UNM is proud to offer a course designed to protect our community,” said Amy Greene, UNM Continuing Education Program Supervisor. “It not only covers active shooter survival, but also how to respond to an IED, knife or vehicle attack. These are real skills for real situations.”

The course provides skills on how to survive an active shooter situation by means of escape, concealment or self-defense.  Re-enactment immersion scenarios designed to re-create the environment of an active shooter will help develop the immediate response necessary to survive the attack.  Prevention, preparedness, response and aftermath action are also covered.

Members of the public are invited to register, as well as UNM students, faculty and staff. The $125 course is eligible for tuition remission.
