Situational Awareness & Human Trafficking Awareness Course (November 12, 2022)

The Situational Awareness Course provides skills and information to make you more aware about your surroundings and detect behavioral anomalies in others so as to detect potential bad situations. The military and police use this everyday in their profession and now it is available to everyone. Situational awareness is learning the behavioral and social acts of people and being able to detect potential threats before they even act. Gaining extra seconds to minutes is the difference between escaping and having to fight for your life. This course is designed for ages from 18 and up. If you are one that stares at their phone in public, walk alone with ear buds in their ears, walk alone in dark areas alone, this course is for you. We will dig deep into situational awareness and the benefits of being aware of your surroundings. We will also talk about threats, and how bad people use situational awareness to hunt their prey. Most people use situational awareness and have no clue they are using it. Example is your waitress or waiter, have you ever started at them for just a second and they come to your table and ask you if you need anything. We will be real and show examples of no awareness to those who are aware. Register for this course as a parent and you can bring your teen or significant other for free.
