Registration is now open!! - Behavioral Threat Assessment training August 18th
The Vermont School Safety Center in collaboration with the Agency of Education, Department of Public Safety and the Vermont School Crisis Planning Team are excited to announce another opportunity to attend the virtual (8) hour Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management Training.
This virtual training introduces the concept of threat assessment and includes guidance and resources for forming and implementing a team in your school or district. This one-day (awareness level) course also teaches participants how to assess threats and other disturbing behavior, and take steps to reduce risk and prevent harm.
Prior to this training, we strongly encourage schools and school districts to identify potential members of your BTA teams and attend this training as a “team”. The class is appropriate for personnel from any of the following:
• District leadership / School board
• School administration
• School psychologists, social workers, and counselors
• Special education personnel
• SROs / School security specialists
• Local, county and state law enforcement
• Human Resources
• Legal counsel
• Existing threat assessment team members
• Others interested in school safety
This training is being provided by our friends at SIGMA Threat Management along with Dr. Marisa Randazzo and her colleagues. There is no charge to attend this training. This training is made possible by a grant awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). BJA is a component of the Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs, which also includes the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the National Institute of Justice, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Office for Victims of Crime, and the SMART Office.
