2. Tap into Training

It’s not too late to sign up for educational courses!

The best never rest, and neither do threats. Whether you’re a Program Manager, Procurement Specialist, or end user, the key to success is staying ahead of the curve through continuous training. Our accredited courses are custom-tailored for different agencies. We cut out irrelevant details and focus on the scenarios you’re likely to face. All courses are delivered in a hands-on format by experts who have lived—and survived—what they teach.

Surviving Active Violence Events (SAVE)

With the increase in workplace violence, school shootings, and domestic terrorism across our nation, PFC created a course designed for participants to learn how to assess, react to, and survive rapidly unfolding active violence events.

    Battle Born Leadership

    What type of leader will people willingly follow into harm's way? How do you become that leader? This instructional clinic on operational leadership answers these questions through lecture and short exercises.

    Introduction to Advanced Manual UAV Pilot Training

    Interested in the most cutting-edge defensive and offensive drone tactics? Performance Drone Works (PDW), the premier developer of custom UAV technology, will present a summary of their five-day manual UAV course.

    Modern Use of Force & Legal Review

    Some use-of-force scenarios are unavoidable, based on studies of career offenders and assailants. Therefore, armed professionals must be educated, aware, and prepared-physically and intellectually.

    Streamlined Procurement: An Open Forum

    Following a discussion on End of Year (EOY) funding strategies, attendees will participate in an open forum Q&A session with speakers from NIB, GSA, DLA, and Source America.
