First Responder Training
Clients come to BLUELINE for a variety of reasons, but mostly because they are frustrated and unsure about how to start improving their security programs and educating their people about potential threats.
BLUELINE has provided training support to our clients for many years. We not only understand the training process, we are extremely accomplished at bringing it to life within our collaborative instructional design. In a sense, our systematic instructional design is a part of our organizational DNA.
BLUELINE has had direct involvement in the development of training for the Department of Homeland Security; United States Department of State’s Anti-Terrorism Assistance program; Colleges and Universities nationwide; state and local police departments; and others.
Much of the training developed in this country is lecture based and, therefore, does not as easily support skill acquisition and transfer. BLUELINE uses the ADDIE educational development model. The use of systematic instructional design processes—the ADDIE model—is essential for ensuring that training is performance-oriented and learner-focused. This process includes five phases: analyze, design, develop, implement, and evaluate. The first four are performed largely in sequence. Evaluation is an important component of the four other phases, as depicted in the ADDIE model below:
This methodology greatly supports the statement of:
Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.
BLUELINE offers a wide variety of training opportunities to include event security, counter terrorism, crisis management and response, workplace violence prevention, critical asset protection, intelligence development, security and safety in the workplace, community policing, investigations, and tactical approaches to critical tasks and more.
