This initial level I-III class is for Sharp security and off-duty officers (ODOs). It is designed to provide training to help you prevent violence in the workplace via a program known as AVADE (awareness, vigilance, avoidance, defense, escape/environment).

This training offers informative, proactive strategies and interventions that can help prevent and mitigate fear, conflict and aggression, while creating a culture of safety. The class is comprehensive and relevant to stop escalation and reduce risk of injury to staff.
