Close Call Academy

02 1 Day 27CC Advanced Certification

This intense one-day course will take you to the next level of SFV™ personal safety. You will gain a deeper understanding of the Close Call Method™ and the Strider Spectrum™, but the real game changer in this course is the exploration of Predator Methods™. You will also do 7 more serious crimes cases with your fellow students, which tackle some darker crimes that our heroes have faced. These cases can be tough but the offer a more in depth look at how predators think and how you can stay safer. Other topics to be discussed are Serious Crimes Law™ as well as how to become an SFV Expert™ or CC Instructor™. 

Pre-Requisite: The Basic Certification must be completed prior to taking this course. Public Safety Officials may take this without Basic Certification but must be approved through the Academy.

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.
