Refuse To Be A Victim Course
Situational Awareness, Personal Safety, and Crime Prevention
This 2-4 hour personal safety program teaches strategies that can be used to avoid situations where self-defense is required. This course focuses on proactive courses of action, rather than reactive. Criminals prefer easy targets. By making yourself more difficult prey, you lessen your risk of criminal attack. Some of the security topics covered include home, personal, automobile, workplace and technology. This seminar covers topics that pertain to both men and women (women only seminars are also available), and is appropriate for everyone from young adults to senior citizens. The Refuse To Be A Victim program materials also include a special teaching module for parents which discuss tips for children of all ages. Hundreds of federal, state, and local law enforcement officials across the country have implemented Refuse To Be A Victim® into their crime prevention and community policing initiatives.
The single most important step you can make toward ensuring your personal safety is making the decision to refuse to be a victim. This means that you must have an overall personal safety strategy in place before you need it.
Through a four-hour seminar called Refuse To Be A Victim® you can learn the personal safety tips and techniques you need to avoid dangerous situations and avoid becoming a victim.
The topics presented in the Refuse To Be A Victim® seminar include,
- Mental preparedness
- How to make your home more secure
- Improving your physical security in various environments
- Safety precautions when driving
- Safeguarding yourself and items with traveling
- Technological Security
- What to consider when choosing physical self-defense training

The following optional topic areas can be added upon request in advance. This will add a small amount of time and cost to the seminar fee.

This is not a firearms course.
This is also not a self defense course.
Firearms, other personal protection devices, and self defense are briefly discussed for consideration. However, most of the course is about lifestyle practices and changes in mindset that can enhance your personal safety.
The Refuse To Be A Victim® curriculum was developed by the NRA. You can find out more about the program ontheir website.
The NRA produced a short video on the curriculum a number of years ago. It’s a bit dated, but provides readers an idea of what the seminar is about.
