Close Call Academy

001: 1.3Hr.: 27 CC Basics (Introduction to personal safety using the Close Call Method™) (1hr20min / 2 Cases Class)

This class is adapted from our 6-hour class. It has been broken down so you can learn how to be safer using the Close Call Method™ much more conveniently as the live portion is just 1.3 hours. If you wish to become certified, it can be done in just 4 weeks and can be done when it suits your schedule. The Close Call Method™ is so powerful because you can use it right away - once you know it you have it forever. We use real crime cases that outline the most dangerous situations that women face today. Once you know them, you will know how to avoid or deal with situations that could turn deadly.

Class Logistics: This is a 1-hour 20-minute online class held as a live meeting using Webex meeting software.

Class Dates: We hold class on Sunday mornings or Tuesday/Wednesday evenings to do two cases. Once we have reached a minimum of 8 students, we will contact you to schedule the class time.
