This is an outstanding program that was developed by the NRA in 1993 as a Women's Program. It was expanded in 1997 to open it up to men and it has been taught to tens of thousands of people across the country.
THIS SEMINAR IS NOT ABOUT GUNS.
It is an awareness and strategy-building education program that is suitable for adults and teens including those for which firearms are not an option and/or desired choice.
Various personal protection devices are discussed including pepper spray and civilian Taser units. Seminar participants that want to go further with these options may then take an NRA firearms course, pursue a concealed handgun permit, etc. but these topics are not part of the RTBAV Seminar itself.
The RTBAV Seminar is 3 to 4 hours in length and it includes a wide range of valuable information from how to make your home less attractive to criminals, improving your locks and security system, personal security while away from home, automobile security, staying safe online and while traveling.
There are modules that focus on the special security concerns of youth and seniors as well as for workplace security. Participants receive a valuable workbook that also goes into greater detail than what can be covered in the Seminar.
As a Certified Refuse To Be A Victim Instructor, we can offer the Seminar to the public as well as private groups, church members, employees, etc
