A Message from the Creator

Michael Julian, CPI PPS CSP

In the Accelerated A.L.I.V.E. Course you'll learn to:

  • Have confidence in knowing how to respond appropriately to an active shooter and defeat the instinct to freeze.

  • Know what steps to take to survive based on the situation.

  • Feel empowered to take those steps rather than believing you are going to die.

  • Be ferociously determined to go home to your family at the end of the day by doing whatever it takes, instead of resigning yourself to never seeing your loved ones again.

  • And if you are responsible for others— as an employer, manager, teacher or caretaker— you will know how to help everyone survive.

Liz Moreno, Mandalay Bay shooting survivor

"I truly believe taking your training is what told me to run, which ultimately saved us."

Liz Moreno, Mandalay Bay shooting survivor

Mr. Julian,
My name is Liz Moreno.… about three years ago you came in and gave us your ALIVE training course… but I never in a million years thought that I’d have to use it.
On October 1st I was in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Festival... when suddenly I heard what sounded like firecrackers… Everyone immediately got down in a big pile… in that very second… your training popped into my head. I told my boyfriend, “We need to leave!”

I truly believe taking your training is what saved us - Thank you!
Jerry Wilkinson, Senior Director, HBR Consulting

"To do nothing in preparation for an active shooter scenario would be negligent."

Jerry Wilkinson, Senior Director, HBR Consulting

Thank you for the passion you have on this subject matter. I truly believe your message resonates with ALL ages, all people and saves lives. Your call to be situationally aware of our environment and your A.L.I.V .E response plan is as critical (if not more so) than the customary fire and earthquake drills we've rehearsed, I highly recommend your training for individuals as well as organizations, large and small.

I especially recommend your training for leadership responsible for ensuring the safety of their employees, co-workers and loved ones. To do nothing in preparation for an active shooter scenario would be negligent.
Patricia Haderlie, Senior VP of Human Resources, Springboard Social Enterprises

"Your training was the answer."

Patricia Haderlie, Senior VP of Human Resources, Springboard Social Enterprises

My management team was begging me to find suitable training for our company. Your training was the answer.

You captivated all in attendance and we realized how very little we were aware and prepared if an event occurred at our location.

Your presentation was very valuable to our group because you provided information and details on real life situations teaching how to respond and act. Your candid, honest approach was especially appreciated. As evidenced by the many questions during and following your presentation, everyone was actively engaged.
Sandra Martinez, Senior HR Generalist, West Pac Avocado

"The knowledge we gained is priceless.”

Sandra Martinez, Senior HR Generalist, West Pac Avocado

The ALIVE training was impactful. It really demonstrated how vulnerable we can be if we are not prepared. I am more confident than ever that we made the right choice in selecting Michael for the ALIVE training. The knowledge myself and our employees gained is priceless.
Catherina Zember, CEO/President, ProSafety, Inc.

"The information in the course is so empowering."

Catherina Zember, CEO/President, ProSafety, Inc.

First I bought the ALIVE book and shared it with my teenage son. Then I had all my employees take the training and wow! The information in the course is so empowering, one of my female employees said the thought of an active shooter scared her to death before taking the course but now she believes she not only knows what to do but has the confidence to do whatever she has to do to survive such an event. So powerful! I cannot recommend this training enough!
Kim Garnett, Owner, Brainy Girl

"5 Stars Is Not Enough"

Kim Garnett, Owner, Brainy Girl

I consider myself LUCKY to have had the opportunity to take this course. Before taking the course I really hadn’t considered what I might do in the event of an active shooter situation. Having completed the course, I feel far more confident that I could survive and help others survive, and I know that I’ll be more aware of my surroundings moving forward. This really is LIFE SAVING TRAINING. Do yourself and your loved ones a favour and enroll right now.
Kelly Riddle, Investigator, author, businessman

The title is appropriate!

Kelly Riddle, Investigator, author, businessman

This message is right on point. The mindset has to be dealt with right up front. Using members of the audience who said they couldn't take someone's life in an active shooter situation and making it real to them was masterful!

With active shootings occurring in churches, schools, malls, movie theaters, etc...everyone should take this course. It truly causes you to confront this in a realistic and appropriate manner.
 Mark Gillespie, Forensics Investigator

The ALIVE Course exceeded my expectations

Mark Gillespie, Forensics Investigator

WOW! I knew the ALIVE Course would be great but it exceeded my expectations. ALIVE Active Shooter Training is not only going to save lives (e.g., Liz Moreno) but it is changing the landscape of active shooter training programs throughout the world. Your passion is real, intense and laser focused and it cuts to the core of the importance of doing everything you teach to survive an active killer scenario. Your style, delivery and use of slides and videos is unequaled! What you have developed is perfect! No one else comes close to your program—it is incredible and will save lives in the future. Well done, Michael!

Why You Should Take This Course

Gregory Schneider, Security Professional

In the face of mass shootings, many people get stuck on how to prepare for such an incident. Some people may be trained to do something but don't know why, others may understand why they must do something but don't know how. ALIVE empowers participants to take action and know why they are doing it. The content is on point and the delivery is nicely done to make the whole course easy to digest and apply.

Frequently Asked Questions

(Click on arrows to see the answers)

  • Who should take this course?

    EVERYONE! Not having this information can cost you your life.

  • Is this training age specific?

    NO! This training can be applied by people of any age.

  • What if I’ve taken active shooter training before?

    Even if you are military or law enforcement, this course gives you the knowledge you wouldn’t have unless you spent years researching active shooters.

  • Can I start this course anytime after I pay?

    Once you have registered for the course you have one year to start and complete it before your login credentials expire.

  • How is your course different from every other course I’ve seen?

    After taking courses from multiple other sources and seen where they may have deficits in their effectiveness, I’ve taken the best information from all of them and applied it using what I’ve learned during my lifetime in the security industry.

  • What is the benefit of this training rather than just acting on instinct?

    Have you ever bought something you never owned before, that needed assembly, and then tried putting it together without using the manual? IF you actually were able to assemble it correctly, after muddling through the process and probably missing some vital steps so you didn’t have pieces left over, it likely took you 3 times longer than if you had used the manual. ALIVE is your Survival Manual and the thing you just bought is your life. Why would you chance not doing it right the first time, as quickly as possible when that thing you need to assemble is your survival?

  • What if my employer/church/venue/organization is interested in this training?

    We offer both in-person AND online training options to companies, organizations, and non-profits. Click on the TRAINING FOR ORGANIZATIONS link at the top of this page for more information.

  • Should I recommend this course to my family members, friends and co-workers?

    Absolutely! Think of it this way, if you were playing a team sport and were trying to win (in this case winning means protecting your own and the lives of those around you) would you be more effective if you were all using the same play book, or everyone just made it up as they went?

  • What if I decide it’s not the right course for me?

    If by the beginning of the 5 steps of A.L.I.V.E. you decide you don’t need the training or it’s delivery is ineffective for you, we'll refund your money.
