Course Hours: 40.0 Hours

Course Description

The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) program at Texas State University - San Marcos was created and developed with the basic goal of providing proven tactical training to first responders in order to better protect their communities and save lives. The training program is relevant, standardized, and constantly evaluated to ensure that the latest terrorist threats are addressed and planned for. It encompasses realistic force on force scenarios to prepare first responders to act, not simply have an awareness of this clear and present threat. This course addresses the tactics required to swiftly and effectively respond to and stop an active shooter threat. This is accomplished through the use of classroom instruction, hands-on performance based training, and scenario based force on force practical exercises.
