C3 Pathways Asim Advanced

This course provides responders with the experience and confidence to manage an Active Shooter Event, no matter their rank or assignment.

Active Shooter Incident Management Advanced is a 3-day comprehensive course using the ASIM Checklist integrated response process with ten hands-on scenario exercises (using the multi-responder NIMSPro3tm 3D Simulation System). The course is appropriate for all ranks of law enforcement, fire, EMS, and dispatch. The course provides hands-on incident management experience for street responders and leaders alike. Participants are trained to integrate and manage a multi-discipline response to a full range of Active Shooter and hostile event threats, including Complex Coordinated Attack (CCA). The goal is simple — decrease the time to neutralize the threat and get injured to a hospital.

Participants learn and practice the following positions, functions, and scenarios:

  • ASIM Checklist process
  • First arriving LEO
  • Contact Team
  • Tactical Group Supervisor
  • Staging Manager
  • Casualty Collection Point
  • Medical Branch
  • Triage Group Supervisor
  • Rescue Task Force (RTF)
  • Transport Group Supervisor
  • Ambulance Exchange Point
  • Casualty (injured) Evacuation
  • Law Enforcement Branch
  • Intelligence/Investigative Section
  • Victim Management and Reunification
  • Incident Commander
  • Communication Center Integration
  • Complex Coordinated Attack (CCA) including multi-site and multiple attacker teams
  • Active Shooter Event with IEDs
  • Active Shooter Event with hostage/barricade

ASIMAdvanced Instructors utilize a no-fault, no-embarrassment coaching style to conduct live training with up to 60 students utilizing NIMSPro3tm for hands-on scenarios. NIMSPro3tm is our professional grade 3D multi-responder simulation system that places everyone in the middle of the action! Dispatchers utilize a fully integrated CAD system to direct responders who work to neutralize threats, triage casualties, implement warm zone EMS care, treat and transport patients, establish perimeters, move and manage victims, and much more — all within to-scale photo realistic 3D environments of selected real world locations!

C3 Pathways Partnerships

NERRTC – The National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (NERRTC) at Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) has been a leader in homeland security training since 1998. NERRTC enhances the capabilities of emergency responders and local officials to prepare for, respond to, and recover from catastrophic events resulting from natural events, man-made accidents, or terrorist attacks. A founding member of both the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) and the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC), NERRTC has provided local, state, tribal and territorial jurisdictions with high-quality, hands-on, scenario-driven leadership training, exercises, and technical assistance.

ALERRT – The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University was created in 2002 as a partnership between Texas State University, the San Marcos (TX) Police Department and the Hays County (TX) Sheriff’s Office to address the need for active shooter response training for law enforcement officers. In 2003, the ALERRT program began offering nationwide training with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). In 2013 in partnership with C3 Pathways, the ALERRT mission expanded to include integrated response training for all first responders (e.g. law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services). That same year the FBI adopted the ALERRT program as the national training standard for the Bureau.

Through our partnership, ALERRT and C3 Pathways jointly developed and delivered the Active Threat Integrated Response Course (ATIRC), the first national DHS certified integrated response course for active threats. C3 Pathways and ALERRT also jointly assisted Louisiana State University’s National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) with developing the Complex Coordinated Attack course, and updated several existing ALERRT curriculum to include the C3 Pathways Active Shooter Incident Management (ASIM) methodology.

In an expanded partnership with TEEX NERRTC, ALERRT, and C3 Pathways, DHS funding was provided through TEEX NERRTC to offer national deliveries of the C3 Pathways ASIM Advanced (PER-353 NERRTC ALERRT C3) and ASIM Intermediate (PER-352 NERRTC C3) courses.
