Armed Robbery Survival

Would your staff know what to do in the event of an armed robbery? Research has shown that decisions made in the first 3 seconds will determine whether the person being robbed will live, die or be seriously injured. One of our most popular courses, it covers offender profiles and behaviour, personal response triggers and psychological self-care after an event.
