Take a Class

We offer three main courses to help you get safer: Basic + AmbassadorTM, Advanced, and Instructor SchoolTM. By taking these courses you will learn what predators don't want you to know and will be certified in the Close Call MethodTM


Basic + Ambassador CertificationTM

This is the first course you will take to learn the basics and become a Certified Close Call AmbassadorTM. Using the case method, you will analyze real cases from our heroes to learn many new strategies and techniques to become safer, namely the Close Call MethodTM.   


Advanced CertificationTM

In the second class in the series, you will gain a deeper understanding of the CCM as well as advanced concepts such as Predator MethodsTM If you are interested in becoming a Certified Close Call Instructor,  this course will be the next step. You will become proficient in Advanced AnalysisTM and will learn even more ways to stay Safe-from-ViolenceTM


Instructor SchoolTM

If you wish to become a Certified Close Call InstructorTM so that you can teach our material, make money, and most importantly, make other women safer, Instructor SchoolTM will need to be completed. Instructor SchoolTM, or I-SchoolTM as we sometimes call it, is intense but you will walk away with the knowledge and tools you need to get started teaching right away, either online or locally.  

Get Ready!

Our courses are an interesting and fun way to learn personal safety skills. We use the case method, which means you will study a case and then there will be a discussion. The case method is a technique used to make learning moments possible and more fun.

There are a few things you can do to make sure you are ready for class. If online, you will want to:
1. Preserve your login credentials from when you sign up for the class. You will need them later.
2. Test your computer equipment and the test link you get from when you sign up for the class. Since the class is online, you will want to make sure you are not having technical issues before the class
3. Buy the book here if you haven't already ordered it. You can get ready early by reading the book ahead and making notes of the cases for yourself.
4. Show up early for the class. Come rested and focused for the great learning experience ahead!

If the class is local, you will want to get there a little early to be sure you can get a good seat. Don't forget your book!
