How prepared are you to handle a real-life emergency? Could you provide basic first aid to a friend or family member, or defend yourself against an attacker? If your answer is “no,” it might be time to invest in a safety or security training course. Pikes Peak Security and other local training providers can help with everything from CPR certification to active violence response tactics.

Active Violence Training

Active violence training is essential in helping individuals and businesses prepare for the unfortunate possibility of a violent attack. It offers key information on how to respond during an attack, such as understanding body language cues, making a safe and quick escape, and learning effective defense techniques.

By engaging in specialized training and mentally preparing for such an event, participants can become better equipped to keep themselves and those around them safe during a potential conflict.

Colorado Springs Training Providers

While we couldn’t find many local providers for active violence training in Colorado Springs, there are several virtual options available.

At our N. Academy location, Pikes Peak Security offers AVERT, an active shooter response program developed by the Health & Safety Institute. AVERT goes one step beyond typical active shooter training courses by including life-saving stop-the-bleed techniques.

Virtual Training

Two of the most popular virtual training options include A.L.I.C.E. and A.L.I.V.E., which are both acronyms for the steps to take in an active shooter situation. You can also learn more about active shooter preparedness on the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management website.

First Aid Training

A person equipped with knowledge of first aid and CPR can act as a vital link between an injured person and professional medical help, providing immediate, essential assistance.

First aid and CPR training empower individuals to prevent further injury, reduce recovery time, and even save a life. As a community, prioritizing such training fosters a safer environment, where individuals can rely on one another for critical support during unforeseen circumstances.

Colorado Springs Training Providers

Most first-aid training providers are certified through the Red Cross, American Heart Association, or American Health and Safety Institute. Topics include basic first aid, CPR, and AED training. Local training providers include:

Self-Defense Classes

Have you ever felt unsafe walking to your car alone at night? Or maybe you avoid certain parts of the city because you’re worried about your personal safety? While it’s good to be cautious, you shouldn’t have to live in fear. And if you work in the event or restaurant industries, you can’t always avoid late nights or unsafe situations.

A good self-defense curriculum will equip you with practical techniques to ward off threats while heightening your awareness of your surroundings. This valuable learning experience promotes a healthier, more resilient community by allowing you to feel confident and in control when a dangerous situation arises. 

Many of these classes are tailored to women or other populations who are more vulnerable to attack, such as the LBGTQ+ community.

Colorado Springs Training Providers

Several local martial arts centers offer general self-defense courses for Colorado Springs adults, but there are also local and national organizations that offer self-defense courses to prevent violence and sexual assault against women in Colorado Springs. Here are a few options to explore:

Gun Safety Training

Many Colorado Springs individuals own firearms for self-defense. Gun safety training promotes responsible handling and ownership of firearms. Through these educational programs, participants are exposed to essential topics such as safe storage, transportation, and proper handling techniques. You’ll also be introduced to concepts such as proper maintenance, effective use of safety features, and risk mitigation strategies.

Ultimately, acquiring these core competencies ensures fewer accidents, preserves lives and contributes to a safer society where responsible firearm ownership is the standard.

Colorado Springs Training Providers

When looking for gun safety training in Colorado Springs, look for NRA-certified instructors and training centers. Here are a few local options:
