Situational awareness training offered to college students

As college students across the United States get ready to head back to school in a few weeks, a special free class is being held this weekend in Smithville .

It's meant to prepare students to protect themselves, should they need to.

It’s common today for you to be walking in public with your ear buds cranking out music and your head buried in your phone; completely unaware of your surrounding reality. But what if that reality suddenly turned sour?

Would you be ready to face it or would you be caught off guard and unaware?

Gain the skills and confidence to be more in tune with your surroundings, whether it’s on a college campus or a business or leisure trip. Join elite former Navy SEAL and U.S. Marines in a unique training opportunity as they guide you through mental and physical practices that can keep you safe if you encounter an unexpected or life-threatening scenario. This is necessary college prep for students, but equally valuable for all adults.

The free class, Situational Awareness & Survival Training for the Real World, will be Saturday, August 5. The class is from 8:30 am to 5 pm and is free to college students.

There will also be a session offered on August 26 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the UT Campus. To learn more or register you can go here.
