This course is free and is being offered twice. The first option is September 18th and 19th, at the North Kansas City Hospital. The second option is September 20th and 21st at the Kansas Speedway. Details and registration links are below.

The PER-335 course is a 16-hour in-person class that addresses the vulnerability of any community to a public safety situation, such as an active shooter at a shopping mall, a train derailment with hazardous chemicals, a bombing incident at a commercial district, a plane crash, or chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive attack. These complex coordinated attacks involve multiple threats that often exceed conventional response tactics. The attacks require a joint response involving members from varying disciplines and jurisdictions.


The goal of this course is to enhance the response capabilities of participants by providing them with the knowledge and tools to enable an effective response. This course is taught through a combination of classroom instruction and practical exercises.

Featured practical exercises allow participants to interact with responders from other disciplines to effectively address a variety of complex coordinated attack scenarios. Participants will work together to identify critical considerations and command strategies. Further, these exercises encourage collaborative decision making and rapid strategizing.


This training will cover the following:

  • Characteristics of a complex coordinated attack
  • Public safety response considerations
  • Command operations and strategies
  • Critical information about situational domain awareness

Target Audience

This course is designed for emergency responders: police, fire, and emergency medical services personnel, including those who are most likely to assume command at some point during a response to a complex coordinated attack.
