ACTIVE SHOOTER SCHOOL SAFETY CERTIFICATION COURSE

#1

Post by montgomery » Mon Feb 26, 2018 9:41 am

Help get the word out. If you or someone you know is a K-12 school teacher AND has their LTC, Mr. Karl Rehn is willing to offer half-off pricing for his Active Shooter School Safety Certification Course on March 12 and 13 at Saddle River Range in Conroe, Texas.

For the discount, please contact Chris Greenfield of Saddle River Range at 936-271-2620 for payment arrangements.

For those that do not qualify for the discount but still want to attend (it is my understanding you must be LTC), you can register and pay online at https://www.saddleriverrange.com/traini ... -training/ - be sure to scroll down past the "Topics Covered" section to register.

Mr. Rehn confirmed the ammunition requirement is 300 rounds.

His bio and credentials are at https://www.krtraining.com/newinst/karlbio.html

I also recommend sending this information to your local school board. The course description is at https://www.saddleriverrange.com/traini ... -training/

There are several instructors in Texas offering this course. I took Karl's in December, 2017. Here is a link to his after action review and student comments:
http://blog.krtraining.com/school-safet ... ourse-aar/

Yes, you must have your LTC to take this course. It starts with firing the LTC course of fire on which you must score at least 90% to be certified. There are other shooting and written tests. All 18 in my class passed all of the requirements.

Yes, shooting is a large part of the course. I fired 318 rounds. Most of the instruction time is lecture, video, and scenario (both inside and outside). Two very busy days.

This class is well worth the time and money. That has been my experience with all of the classes I have taken at KR Training. I'm taking three more classes this weekend - intensive shooting (sold out), force on force scenarios (sold out), then low light training (1 seat left).

Thank you so much for the thoughtful reply! I included the AAR in my letter to my local ISD Board.

I would love to hear how your classes this weekend go. I am very interested in taking those classes as well.

Class was awesome! Instructor Karl Rehn was fabulous ... very well organized and executed. This class is not for the casual shooter or faint of heart. Even if you have no desire to respond to an active shooter, but choose to carry a firearm for self-defense, this class will help you with fighting mindset and situational dynamics.

My wife, Tonya (DividedAttention when she posts here), was in class with you. Your observations echo hers.

This is also my opinion of Karl and his instruction. http://www.krtraining.com March 3 I took three classes in one day (see message above). Well organized and run, very challenging. Got to try various hand held and weapon mounted lights after dark. Shoot house in the dark with hand held light. All conducted very safely.

How many were in your School Safety/Active Shooter class?

Thanks for that ... hopefully I get to shake your hand in a class down the road.

I put out a challenge to my son's ISD: match my commitment and send two teachers and two administrators. At that point, I was going to offer my paid registration to two more teachers. No response. So, I attended on behalf of the entire Montgomery ISD as a parent. Small class - with me was a male high school teacher, a female K-4 receptionist, a female high school nurse, and another proactive dad - all experienced shooters. We covered alot of ground in those two days.

That's outstanding that Mr. Rehn offered a discounted class and everyone did well! I'm sure it was time well spent. We need more citizens with the commitment and training to deal with these situations.

This course is normally open to Texas LTC holders even if they are not associated with schools?

Yes, y'all come. The class I took in December, 2017, had 16 students, mostly not public school teachers. Most were there as church members. All did well. The curriculum is well suited for any situation resembling a school or church. Lots of shoot-no shoot and hostage situations. In order to get a certificate, you must already have your LTC.

Yes ... and she crushed it too by the way!! Some people are born to shoot. She is one of those people.

I'm looking into this - a trip to Conroe would be valuable.
