Once individual units have staff and faculty who have been through the course, they can schedule an on-site strategic survey. The on-site takes 4-hours.

Response to this training has been very positive, as it provides participants with an understanding as to how they can appropriately react to someone in crisis and what to do if the situation becomes dangerous.
