The AVERT course is delivered in a “blended” training format. This means students will first receive online training introducing them to the subject and preparing them for the instructor-led session.

The instructor-led session lasts approximately three hours and includes hands-on training, realistic drills, and education with encouraging tips and feedback. Class sizes are limited to 15 people or less per instructor. All participants have an opportunity to practice and gain the confidence to respond appropriately if an active violence or life-threatening situation arises.
