Castleton University brings active shooter training to campus

CASTLETON — Castleton University and the ALICE Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE Instructor Training to the Castleton University campus on July 25-26.

This two-day instructor course is designed to teach proactive survival strategies for violent intruder or active shooter incidents. The goal of the ALICE program is to provide individuals with survival enhancing options for those critical moments in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives on scene.

The registration fee for this training is $595 per person and can be completed online at

ALICE stands for “Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate” and is a useful strategy for law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses, and places of worship. Completing the ALICE Instructor Training course provides individuals with certification in ALICE training and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back to their place of work.
