NERRTC – The National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (NERRTC) at Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) has been a leader in homeland security training since 1998. NERRTC enhances the capabilities of emergency responders and local officials to prepare for, respond to, and recover from catastrophic events resulting from natural events, man-made accidents, or terrorist attacks. A founding member of both the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) and the National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium (NCPC), NERRTC has provided local, state, tribal and territorial jurisdictions with high-quality, hands-on, scenario-driven leadership training, exercises, and technical assistance.

ALERRT – The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University was created in 2002 as a partnership between Texas State University, the San Marcos (TX) Police Department and the Hays County (TX) Sheriff’s Office to address the need for active shooter response training for law enforcement officers. In 2003, the ALERRT program began offering nationwide training with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). In 2013 in partnership with C3 Pathways, the ALERRT mission expanded to include integrated response training for all first responders (e.g. law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services). That same year the FBI adopted the ALERRT program as the national training standard for the Bureau.

Through our partnership, ALERRT and C3 Pathways jointly developed and delivered the Active Threat Integrated Response Course (ATIRC), the first national DHS certified integrated response course for active threats. C3 Pathways and ALERRT also jointly assisted Louisiana State University’s National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) with developing the Complex Coordinated Attack course, and updated several existing ALERRT curriculum to include the C3 Pathways Active Shooter Incident Management (ASIM) methodology.

In an expanded partnership with TEEX NERRTC, ALERRT, and C3 Pathways, DHS funding was provided through TEEX NERRTC to offer national deliveries of the C3 Pathways ASIM Advanced (PER-353 NERRTC ALERRT C3) and ASIM Intermediate (PER-352 NERRTC ALERRT C3) courses.
