Training Programs

"The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead."
- Proverbs 21:16

At Threat Suppression, our passion is researching and providing scholastic, vetted safety and security training. There are many companies that claim to have safety and security experts. However, our staff have distinguished themselves, and made an international name for the company through our research and drive to provide quality training.


We have trained more than 150,000 people from the following; law enforcement, fire service, EMS, 9-1-1 communications, United States military and NATO allies, educational institutions from preschool to universities, private businesses, hospitals and healthcare facilities, houses of worship, elected government officials, government insurance providers, and more. Threat Suppression staff have taught courses throughout North America, Central America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, and the Middle East. 


Each year, our staff present at more than 75 conferences around the world, as well as conducting numerous training courses for individual agencies. Courses are typically booked at least 90 days in advance. Courses that require multiple instructors require a minimum 90 days’ notice. International courses require 120 day notice. We currently have several conferences booked more than a year in advance. To see the conferences we have scheduled, please click here. To see a list of our previous conference, click here.


As a testament to our training, 95% of our courses are booked from word-of-mouth recommendations. We have delivered our training to small groups as well as audiences exceeding 10,000. We tailor all training courses to meet the specific needs of our clients.


We continually update and revise all of our training programs. Each program is the results of hundreds (in some cases thousands) of hours of preparation and research. Some of our training programs are the result of more than 50,000 hours of research by Threat Suppression staff. Every training program is research-based and heavily cited with references. We use both data and passion to deliver award-winning presentations.


Approximately 50% of our training courses are covered by grants. These grants include EMS for Children grants, Department of Education grants, hospital preparedness grants, Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) grants, law enforcement safety and survival grants, and emergency management grants. In addition, local businesses typically provide funding for many of the courses. In some cases, the host agency will charge a registration fee. 

Nearly all of Threat Suppression’s contracts are non-competitive, sole source awards. For federal agencies (and federal grant recipients), our training meets the public exigency criteria set forth in the federal procurement standards section in Code of Federal Regulations 2 CFR § 200.320.3. For North Carolina government agencies, we meet the competitive bid exemption in North Carolina General Statute 143-129(e); as “…the performance of the work is for special emergencies involving the health and safety of people and property.” A sole source letter is available upon request. 

Each year, Threat Suppression receives more than 300 national and international training requests. Our standard speaking fee is $3,500 for a half day (five hours or less) and $6,000 for a full eight-hour day (plus travel and lodging expenses). Discounts are available for United States' government organizations (including the Department of Defense) and organizations that bundle multiple classes.
