Course Description: This 3-day / 24-hour training program will focus on preparing individuals that are screened and selected by their respective House of Worship for the safety of their congregants, staff and clergy.

People that choose to work as volunteer staff at their House of Worship have little to no experience when it comes to safety and security in keeping their congregation safe.

Traditional volunteer staff are accustomed to being friendly, while assisting & directing congregants, shaking hands and passing offering collection baskets.

However, today’s troubled times have greeters, ushers, deacons, ministers, teachers and pastors all sharing responsibility in the safety and well being of their congregation.

Potential situations where safety team member intervention may be required, include; interacting with rude vagrants, intoxicated subjects and emotionally disturbed people that are interrupting services, to dealing with an active shooter incident.

To prepare safety team members for these situations, the following topics will be covered in this training program:
