Starting in January, UNF will provide a new online course that will help teachers and other professionals on how to prepare themselves for, prevent or survive an active shooter.

The Institute of Police Technology and Management at the University of North Florida developed the course with video material that will teach key behaviors associated with potential active shooters and how people can protect themselves during the event.

“Our goal is to help teachers and other professionals survive an active shooter. “We are confident this training will achieve this goal,” Cameron Pucci, IPTM director said.

The Institute also designed versions of the program to benefit churches, synagogues and other places of worship, along with workplaces, such as office buildings.

The course costs $29 and will accept new enrollments throughout the year. Discount pricing is also available.
