Active Shooter Training Workshop 2014
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Training Center (NTC), within the Office of Health, Safety and Security, wishes to announce that the 2014 Security Protection Officer Team Competition (SPOTC) will be replaced this year by a three-day Active Shooter Training Workshop at the NTC in response to emergent needs in the field. Because of recent active shooter and workplace violence incidents, the NTC recognizes the need to provide this training to DOE security personnel tasked with the protection of DOE assets.
The training workshop will be based on real-world threats and real-time issues. It will combine a variety of guest lecturers with hands-on practical exercises using both live fire and engagement simulation systems weapons. The exercises will be led by NTC instructors at the NTC’s Live Fire Range. Sites are encouraged to send instructors and protective force personnel responsible for active shooter response.
The workshop will be held at the NTC in Albuquerque, New Mexico on June 3–5, 2014, and will conclude with a closeout session on Thursday, June 5. On Tuesday, June 3, presentations by several guest lecturers will be conducted at the NTC main campus. On June 4–5, Protective Force drills will be conducted at the NTC Live Fire Range (LFR) and Integrated Safety and Security Training and Evaluation Complex (ISSTEC). A formal schedule of events will be published at a later date.
The training workshop is open to all DOE, Federal, and law enforcement personnel. Because of the exercises to be performed at the LFR and ISSTEC, enrollment will be limited to 45 attendees, with priority given to DOE personnel. Observers are encouraged to attend; they will not, however, be allowed to participate in the drills at the LFR and ISSTEC.
There will not be a host hotel for the workshop. Attendees are highly encouraged to make reservations at their choice of hotel as soon as possible. The NTC has made arrangements with Kirtland Air Force Base for a limited number of rooms at a reduced rate. Please contact Kathy Davis at 505-845-2302 for additional information.
