Personal Safety and Self Defense

 


 

COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

This four-hour course is designed to provide important safety tips and precautions for personal safety in the workplace. This is especially true for real estate professionals as they are very often in situations that expose them to unknown situations, with unknown persons. Instructor Preston Taylor has worked in law enforcement for over 20 years, is a Police Academy Instructor, and a Defensive Tactics Instructor for over 15 years. He has acted as a speaker/trainer for the National Association of Realtors and the Michigan Association of Realtors.

It is important to understand the legal environment surrounding self-defense and the physical limitations that can be a factor for each individual. There are key "Rules of Engagement" that will help those who work with the public to recognize and avoid dangerous situations. If a confrontation does occur, the instructor outlines and demonstrates the best and most practical ways to respond to and reduce potential harm. This program offers self-defense techniques from the stand-up position using easy and effective gross motor skills, to ground defense and ground avoidance (rape prevention).

 

Upon completion of this course, participants will:

  • Understand what laws govern personal protection and the use of deadly force.
  • Recognize the pros and cons of firearms, pepper spray, and stun guns.
  • Be able to effectively use the most practical precautions during both home showings and open houses.
  • Become more confident in the use of physical deterrents and self-defense techniques.
