Training Courses

Cost is structured so as the Host agency/organization pays for the course and subsequently (with BSR’s assistance) advertises their course to a target audience to fill seats of up to 30 participants.  Multiple classes can be run simultaneously (i.e. 30 participants in one classroom, 30 participants in another).  Cost per participant dramatically decreases the closer the Host agency/organization gets to filling 30 seats for each of these courses.  There are situations whereas the pricing is negotiable on a case by case basis by the BSR/SPTC Director of Training.

Ex:  For a 1-day course cost of $3,600.00:
30 participants = $120.00 per participant,
20 participants = $180.00 per participant,
10 participants = $360.00 per participant, etc.

This structure is done so as the Host agency/organization has the opportunity to reach out to the community or sister agencies/organizations to promote their facility as providing the Active Shooter training and potentially incur additional funding for their training programs by adding additional costs (Host’s option) to the registration fees.  Specific pricing of each course is listed below (includes graduating/participation certificates).
