Close Call Academy

01 1 Day 27CC Basic Course

This course is focused so that you can become Basic Certified in just one day. You will be safer right away since you can use our techniques as soon as you learn them. In this course, you will cover 7 serious crime cases which will be analyzed in a group setting to pull out the best tools that can be used in real life. You will also get access to the Close Call Method™, Strider Spectrum™, and some basic insights into Predator Methods™.

This is the fast track if you are interested in becoming a CC Ambassador™ or Instructor™ right away.

Class Logistics: This is a 6 hour online class with an hour lunch in the middle and several mini breaks so that everyone can stay comfortable. Small classes or classes that decide on shorter breaks may finish the class sooner. The class meets in an online live meeting. It is advisable to show up at least 15 minutes early in case there are technical issues. If you show up late or are having technical issues, you may be expelled from the class and can join another one at a later date. The class agreement must be uploaded prior to class time. If this is not done, you will not be able to proceed and will be moved to a later class. The agreement and class test are done in Litmos. Once you sign up for the class, you will get an email from Close Call Academy with instructions to get set up on Litmos. Please do this well in advance of your class time. Once you have gone through these steps, you will be ready to join the class and get started on your safety journey.
