Tru-Trauma is a leading life safety and critical skills training provider. We help save lives by partnering with clients to establish a tailored emergency response plan and ensure responsible staff is properly trained to handle a crisis situation.
At Tru-Trauma, our hyperrealistic critical incident training is what makes us unique. Our training method provides immersive, life-like scenarios that simulate a critical incident, natural disaster, or mass shooting. In doing so, we prepare participants to develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and confidence to handle these real-world incidents. Our combination of practical exercises and theoretical knowledge better equips participants to respond effectively, mitigate harm, and save lives.
Tru-Trauma instructors are certified to teach the STOP THE BLEED® program and have the necessary real-world experience and skillset to effectively teach techniques and protocols when responding to life-threatening emergencies. Our instructors incorporate hands-on training, practice how to stop and stabilize an individual who is bleeding, and offer guidance and feedback. At the end of the training, participants will receive a STOP THE BLEED® certificate of completion. Candidates for the STOP THE BLEED® program include business owners and their employees, school administrators and staff, healthcare workers, and religious institutions.
Fear can easily overtake our minds during an emergency, which can lead to dangerous consequences. Tru-Trauma helps individuals learn to master situational awareness, enabling them to scan their environment and assess the situation quickly to identify any potential risks that may arise and take proactive measures rather than wait until an emergency occurs. Tru-Trauma staff helps individuals develop strategies for dealing with stressful situations while promoting appropriate levels of awareness which can help to better evaluate complex information and clarify the most important steps during an emergency.
Risk Management is a critical tool in ensuring the safety and security of
individuals in various high-threat scenarios.
Tru-Trauma helps to train and develop a comprehensive emergency response plan for high-threat situations such as active shooter events. Our comprehensive assessment and training program starts with a complete inspection of your building, campus, office, staff, and grounds, giving us an outline of weaknesses and areas needing improvement. Based on our findings, we will make recommendations for areas of improvement, suggest protocols to implement, and provide a well-defined emergency response plan.

We provide Tru-Trauma training at no additional cost with the purchase of Clear-Armor laminate product in excess of 2,500 sq. ft. accumulated - for example, 2 or 3 schools in the same district.
Clear-Armor takes a 3-Step Approach:
If you want training but do not have Clear-Armor laminates, please contact us. Pricing is determined by the type and duration of training requested.
Tru-Trauma Training is for the staff of companies that have installed our Clear-Armor product in their facilities, creating a force multiplier. We welcome all personnel in your community seeking to be proactive about emergency or crisis preparedness. In some states, the training counts as CEU's for teachers. Participants receive STOP THE BLEED ® and Tru-Trauma certification upon the successful completion of training.
We provide hyper-realistic training that prepares you to respond appropriately in a real-life crisis scenario. Traditional training takes place in a fun, relaxed, and controlled environment. However, the reality of an active shooter situation involves additional layers of potentially paralyzing fear and overwhelmedness that can impair anyone. Therefore, training your staff in a hyper-realistic setting is crucial to empower them to captain their natural fight-or-flight physiological response to respond appropriately in providing life-saving first aid.
The curriculum is custom created for your organization. It can be as short as three hours long, or as long as two full 8-hour days. We are committed to leaving your group prepared and empowered.
Upon completing the training, participants will receive a STOP THE BLEED ® certificate and a Tru-Trauma certificate.
We recommend a yearly refresher course to review and update response plans and procedures.
