Active Shooter: ALERRT Level 1

Course Hours: 16.0 Hours

Course Description

The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (A.L.E.R.R.T.) Level 1 course created by Texas State University - San Marcos is promoted by the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation. The target audience for this course includes state and local law enforcement officers who will respond to an active shooter event. Not only must our first responders be trained and prepared for a single gunman in a school, mall, or public gathering, but they must also be prepared to fight well-trained, committed terrorists simultaneously attacking their community on multiple fronts. The A.L.E.R.R.T. Program 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 encompasses realistic force on force scenarios to prepare first responders to act to these clear and present threats.


Certified and sworn law enforcement.
