Advanced Digital Threat Assessment Trainings

In-Person Training

The Advanced School Behavioral Threat Assessment Training leads participants through multiple tabletop exercises on different fact patterns, providing participants the opportunity to handle threat cases from start to finish, iron out their roles and responsibilities, and hone their procedures and decision-making, all with continuous trainer feedback. In addition to multiple tabletop exercises advanced training also includes common problems and solutions in implementing school threat assessment programs. This training is designed for individuals who serve on the Safe and Supportive School Program Team and conduct behavioral threat assessments.
