Active Shooter Response Training set for July, CWC to host

    Central Wyoming College and the ALICE Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE Instructor Certification Training to Riverton, Wyoming on July 22-23. The course will be at CWC in the health science building room 100 at 8 am.

    “ALICE will bring in an instructor for the 16-hour course,” said Chuck Carr, CWC campus safety director. This two-day Instructor Certification course is designed to teach proactive option-based strategies to increase survivability in a violent critical incident. The ALICE strategies empower individuals to participate in their own survival in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives.

    ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate and is a valuable strategy for everyone: law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses, and places of worship. Completing the ALICE Certification Instructor course provides individuals with certification in ALICE proactive strategies and allows them the opportunity to bring those same strategies back to their organization. Additionally, registrants will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources.


    “We have eight ALICE Instructors on staff now,” Carr said. “We have completed 57 classes since January 2016. We have trained 890 people. This includes staff, students and community members.”

    Carr and his team have also taught ALICE to 75 different community member groups from across the state of Wyoming. 

    ALICE is aligned with recommendations from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Education, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and many State government agencies.

    About ALICE Training Institute

    ALICE training is the original options-based response program that is designed to replace an inadequate lockdown-only response plan. ALICE addresses the fallacies of a one-size-fits-all response plan by explaining the truths and realities of Violent Critical Incidents. The reality is that extremely tragic outcomes in these events can be mitigated. They are very much survivable. Through training and empowerment, citizens can apply the ALICE proactive strategies and improve chances of survival in any environment where they may find themselves confronted by an active shooter or violent intruder. ALICE strategies are now also mirrored and recommended by many Federal and State official guidelines. For More Information about ALICE Training Institute Contact us at [email protected].
