Prepare Your Business and Your Staff

You don't want the first time that you think about an emergency to be while that emergency is happening. Proactively prepare your business and your team to handle anything that they may encounter in the workplace. Each course is 1 hour long and costs $500. You can purchase only one program, or any of the classes can be mixed and matched to create a half day course (3-hours, $1,250) or full day (6-hours, $2,500).

The training sessions offered are:

  • De-Escalation and Verbal Conflict Resolution

  • Situational Awareness

  • Workplace Violence

  • Active Shooter

  • Facility Safety Management

The Prepare to Act Team will facilitate these workshops onsite at your business, at one of our classroom locations around Connecticut, or offsite at the location of your choice. We can provide projector and screen if needed.

De-escalation and Verbal Conflict resolution

            On a daily basis we face unexpected situations introduced to our normally routine lives, by difficult, angry or frustrating people.  From those in line in front of us at the grocery store to the co-worker or customer that’s just simply impossible.  This training is designed to give you and your staff the ability to process, change and handle those situations.  It teaches you to re-direct behavior, methods to create distance and become safer and understand the struggles that person may be facing.
