Welcome to ACT Cert: Saving Lives Through Education  

The Attack Countermeasures Training team offer our condolences to the victims of all recent attacks, as well as to their family members, friends, and to our country.

The massacres represent attacks on free society and our civilized values. Terrorists are routinely targeting people in crowded venues like malls, concert halls, movie theaters, night clubs and restaurants. In light of this trend, we are offering our interactive online Extreme Violence Survival course at a significantly discounted rate of $180.

Join us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with the latest practical information on preventing and surviving future attacks.

ACT Cert™ offers, up-to-date, interactive educational products and practical training necessary to address violence and terrorism. Programs can be adopted by anyone in public or private sectors, including schools, businesses, hospitals, houses of worship, law enforcement, security professionals and law abiding citizens from all walks of life.

Getting Started: We highly recommend anyone attending school, going to a house of worship, participating in public shows or events, or working in a corporate environment start with the Last Resort Survival lesson.

Testimonial Letter for Attack Countermeasures Training (ACT)

I had the privilege of attending the first Violence Prevention and Active Shooter Survival Class for Realtors® this year. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and feel empowered and better prepared to protect myself should I encounter a violent person while performing my usual real estate work. I specifically appreciated learning how to be better aware of my surroundings, always positioning myself for my optimum safety and receiving a better understanding of a criminals methods and mindset to best protect myself. I emphatically suggest this class be taken by every Realtor® / Agent / Broker. Everyone being prepared and empowered for every situation is a huge benefit to the entire Real Estate community!

ACT teaches a common sense solution that focuses on protecting the children first. This is not some commando military training of attack. It teaches evacuation and escape first.
