Vic Vogel, President and instructor for the course said, "In today's busy world people find it inconvient to take the time to attend a seminar at a campus, hotel, or meeting room. Protection is very personal. People enjoy the privacy of talking about protection with the family present, or with people they know and feel comfortable with."
The course is four hours long and has two segments. The first segment focuses on protection and what a person needs to know to avoid a deadly force encounter, or a major threat.
Since no one can ensure 100% protection against a violent act, the second segment of the course gives the participant an opportunity to experience a life threatening situation, and gain some insight on how they will react.
Vic Vogel explains why the second segment is importnat, "Participants have a preconceived notion about how they will react to a violent threat, particularly if they have a weapon to defend themselves. The situation awarenes in the use of force segment gives partcipants an opportunity to see the perception gap between what they think they will do, and how they actually react. Now, this video simulation exercise can't come close to the real thing, but it is one of the best ways to see how your thought processes will work when you have to make a life and death decision in a matter of four or five seconds. People basically get a wake-up call about their emotions and physical reactions to a deadly force encounter. They often realize there is a gap between how they thought they would act, and how they reacted. From this we can advise further training that will close the gap'
The course is limited to ten people maximum, and a minimum of five people. This allows the seminar to be conducted in the privacy of a home or a business environment. Outside of convience and privacy, this format allows for a more relaxed and comfortable learning environment. The course is private, caters to the participants timing, and minimizes travel for most participants.
The seminar can be conducted for a family, a friends get together, and is suited for a girls night out at a friends house. In addition instructors are not restrictetd by meeting room times. This allows for a more personal question and answer session at the end of the seminar.
There are no live weapons and ammunition so safety is not an issue in conducting the seminar in the home. Everything is conducted with a video format on a large screen and a simulated laser firearm.
"With a little advance notice, we can even personalize the seminar to the participants. Protection is personal and should not be trained using a cookie cutter approach.", according to Vogel.
