DCU offers the most advanced College Safety Prep course in the world!

Parents and Campus Administrators, have you done your best to prepare our children for the challenges in life?

 You are providing them the education they need to succeed in the world.  

Now give them the education they need to stay safe and protect themselves while at school and beyond!

Defense Coach University’s College Safety Prep program is the leader in student-centric safety and protection education. We are experts in preparing students for the many expected and unexpected challenges they face as they strive to achieve on an academic and social level to become caring, giving, and valued members of society.

Our intelligent, fun, and comprehensive program uses the power of simulation and education mixed together to empowers students to recognize and avoid danger as a first line of defense.

The best self-defense strategies use recognition and awareness, so that avoidance of a dangerous situation is your weapon!

When avoidance can’t be achieved, we teach students ways to evade the situation and get away safely. If evasion is impossible and action is required, we provide a Counter module that covers techniques to use when absolutely necessary, so they can escape potentially dangerous and/or threatening situations.

RAEC (Recognize, Avoid, Evade, and Counter) is a blueprint for safety as students move through their daily campus life.

What are the some of the risks we cover?

  • Aggressive behavior
  • Date rape
  • Unwanted sexual advancement
  • Assault
  • Violent rape
  • Bullying
  • Stalking
  • Active shooter / Hostile intruder

Our philosophy is that students must be able to protect themselves in any uncertain situation.

R-A-E-C, or Recognize, Avoid, Evade, and Counter, imparts a strong safety and personal protection system for students to mitigate risk, think strategically, and plan for the expected and unexpected challenges of campus life while they enjoy the learning process.

Learning your options, planning, and preparing are the key factors that assist people in their ability to cope with potentially dangerous situations and crisis. The more educated you are, the more prepared you are and the more likely you will avoid the situation altogether.

In the College Safety Prep program, students will learn:

  • Critical situational awareness skills
  • The types of threats they may face in the campus environment
  • Threat-assessment principles
  • Pre-incident behavior and indicators
  • Active avoidance
  • How to assess and identify risk
  • How to think strategically
  • How to prevent and diffuse volatile situations and conflict
  • The body stress response and how to work with it effectively
  • How to evade when they cannot avoid
  • Practical role-playing games to enhance skills
  • Debriefing techniques to use with campus police and security
  • Title IX and its importance and role in their safety



Delivery: College Safety Prep is an online program that is available on all popular devices, including iPhone, Android and Windows 10 phones, tablets, Macs and PC desktops. It is a truly “mobile anywhere” experience. College Safety Prep leverages the ACE platform, which allows users to complete the program in a single sitting or break it down into small units and complete it when time allows.

Reporting and Verification: Once a student has completed the program successfully, their choices during the program will be scored. Based on a passing score (which can be defined by the campus or university based on meeting minimum requirements), the student will receive a certificate of completion and the Campus/University LMS will be notified.

Students must do everything they can to prevent dangerous or violent situations before they happen. With the College Safety Prep program, you can now minimize risk and maximize every student’s campus experience.
