In today's world, the unfortunate reality is that acts of violence, including active shooter incidents, can occur in any setting, including healthcare facilities such as dental practices. Dentists and their staff are responsible not only for providing quality dental care but also for ensuring the safety and well-being of their patients and themselves. Therefore, it's crucial for dental professionals to be prepared to respond effectively in the event of an active shooter situation.

This Continuing Education training is designed to equip dental professionals with the knowledge, skills, and strategies necessary to mitigate the risks associated with an active shooter incident and to respond appropriately to protect themselves, their patients, and their colleagues. 

By completing this CE course, dentists and their staff will be better prepared to prevent, respond to, and recover from an active shooter incident in their dental practice. Investing in active shooter training not only enhances the safety and security of the practice but also demonstrates a commitment to the well-being of patients and staff.

Key topics covered in this course include:

  1. Recognize the warning signs of potential violence to end it before it begins

  2. The proper Survival Mindset and concept of being Proactively Reactionary

  3. To have confidence in knowing how to respond appropriately to an active shooter and defeat the instinct to freeze

  4. What steps to take to survive based on the situation

  5. Empowerment to take those steps rather than believing you are going to die

  6. To 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

  7. And if you are responsible for others— as an employer, manager, teacher or caretaker— you'll learn how to help everyone survive!

Michael Julian began his career in investigations and security assisting his father Ron Julian, the founder of his company National Business Investigations (NBI), at the age of 16. He majored in Administration of Justice in college where he was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa International Scholastic Order for academic achievement.

He began working full time for NBI in 1990, specializing in surveillance operations, and continued his education by completing the California Department of Justice Reserve Law Enforcement Academy, and studying advanced surveillance techniques from the National Association of Investigative Specialists.

Michael joined the California Association of Licensed Investigators (CALI) in 1995 where he served as a District Governor, on the Legislation and Technology Committees, Education & Training Task Force, Board of Directors as the Vice President of Administrative Services for five terms, and as President in 2012 and 2013.

Michael created MPS Security & Protection, the personal and asset protection division of NBI, in 2003 to satisfy the increasing demand for executive level and facility security services.

He is licensed in multiple states as a Private Investigator and Security Professional, is a graduate of the Executive Protection Institute and Executive Security International, and Board Director or member of several national and international security and investigator associations.

Michael’s security training includes behavioral threat assessment, active shooter survival, executive and asset protection, self-defense, defensive and evasive driving, close protection, aviation security, interview and interrogation techniques, protective surveillance and counter surveillance, and covert protection. He teaches courses in Executive and Asset Protection throughout the United States and is a trusted security consultant for numerous organizations providing personal and asset security solutions and teaching workplace violence identification and reaction, and active shooter survival. Michael is a featured security expert for Los Angeles ABC Channel 7 News.

A.L.I.V.E., which stands for Assess, Leave, Impede, Violence, and Expose, was created in 2014 when Michael began teaching his Active Shooter Survival philosophy throughout the United States. His book on the subject, 10 Minutes to Live: Surviving an Active Shooter Using A.L.I.V.E. was published in 2017 and the online version of the A.L.I.V.E.
