The Core SHIELD Curriculum
SHIELD's skills-based learning is delivered peer-to-peer by the SHIELD training team, which is led by a retired police chief and includes local officers, first responders, and public health experts. Unlike "off-the-shelf" trainings, the SHIELD team customizes the curriculum to your department's and personnel’s local needs. By providing local information and resources, your officers and first responders will be able to immediately operationalize the SHIELD tools. Using an interactive instructional design and customized local information, the three modules are delivered in a single session.
