What are my options for individual self-defense training or employee self defense training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It’s a self defense powerpoint presentation used to train any number of people at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer to use the kit we offer a train the trainer online course.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+ trainees.


Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.


Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands-on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.


What’s in the Self-Defense Training Course?

Our Self-Defense training course is built to OSHA standards. This class discusses topics including prevention, physical defense, legal defense, cyber defense, case studies, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.

Why do I need self-defense training?

OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for self-defense training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”

Because of this requirement, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with self-defense. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
