Upcoming Education Courses in Bloomington

Active Shooter Training

The Indiana State Police, with the assistance of school safety liaison Dr. Richard Hogue, has created a presentation providing key steps to follow should one encounter an active shooter. Incorporating a City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security video called “Run. Hide. Fight.” into the training aids, this session will assist businesses and other organizations in preparing to respond to the unpredictable possibility of an active shooter event.

This education session includes a screening of the video, best practices for safeguarding oneself and others in the event of an active shooter, and a question and answer session.

About the Instructor:

Dr. Richard Hogue, Ed.D. of Hogue & Associates, Inc., is an education professional with more than 35 years of dedicated commitment to professional education of youth. He is the Indiana State Police coordinator and educator of ISP’s Safe Schools / Active Shooter training program.

I am proud to be an activate member of IAA. The courteous & professional service IAA provides along with the educational seminars and networking with my peers, helps me succeed as a property manager.
Lisa Turner, Property Manager, Autumn Ridge Apartments
I have been in the apartment industry since 2008 and loved it the moment I started. The IAA is as strong as its members, so it is always great to recruit and meet new members. I am a firm believer in networking; getting to know, like, and trust others. On top of the networking opportunities, the IAA offers exceptional and important classes.
Alissa Morlan, Regional Manager, Chair, IAA: Lafayette, HI Management
As a team, we felt like we were a little slow in terms of how long it took us to join IAA, but looking back are so glad we did. It was one of the best decisions we made not just because it put us in front of our target audience on a monthly basis, but because we have been able give back and be active members of the industry. Sitting on committees, attending events / meetings, and diving in to serve and make an impact where we can has been so rewarding for all of us.
