We’re two weeks away from the registration deadline, so we wanted to send out this reminder that the Weld County Sheriff’s Office is hosting an active shooter training Oct. 30 in cooperation with the ALICE Training Institute. Here are the details with information about how to sign up.

Weld County Sheriff’s Office hosting active shooter training course

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is hosting in October an active shooter training instructor course designed to not only teach participants the skills and strategies to survive, but to also certify them as instructors to pass on those skills to their coworkers.

The two-day instructor training is taught by the ALICE Training Institute. It encompasses one day of virtual instruction followed by a full day of drills based on real-life scenarios. The in-person portion of the course will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30 at the Horizon Building at Aims Community College, 5401 W. 20th St. in Greeley.

Due to COVID-19 likely not dissipating by the end of October, participants will be expected to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. The course costs $695. The deadline to register is Friday, Oct. 16.

The target audience includes law enforcement, private security, school and health care administrators, corporate and business executives, and leaders across numerous industries who work with, interact or are responsible for large groups of people. Upon completion of the course, participants will be certified ALICE instructors with the knowledge and access to resources to train their coworkers about survival strategies for active shooter scenarios.
