Child Abduction Prevention Training
Teaches children, parents and teachers how to respond to dangerous situations with real-life scenario training.
Based on law-enforcement principles, the C.O.B.R.A Defense Systems Child Abduction Prevention course has been brought to Australia by certified trainers.
Ideally suited for 5-12 year olds, this course books out quickly and has received great feedback from families attending.
Convenors Glenn and Tammy have taught this course for many years to schools, kindergartens, sports groups and private courses as well as every school holiday for their local council.
Upon request, they have agreed to visit Canberra to deliver the course for local children and parents.

From trainer Glenn Stevens:
‘The Child Abduction Prevention course is two hours long. We like to limit it to approx 20 children so that we can work individually with each child, but the parents will be involved as well.
‘Tammy, our female instructor, is fantastic with the kids and coaches the kids through the scenarios. We aim to constantly increase the challenge for the children, to make it realistic, without scaring them.
‘It’s very age appropriate, but what we try and do is make sure that every single child goes away knowing that there’s something they can do. They can become more confident, they can protect themselves. The parents see this.
‘Every person we’ve taught it to says, “this needs to be in every single school in Australia”.
‘It’s ground-breaking, it’s so simple, it’s so easy to learn. Every child needs to learn this.’
The course covers:
– What is a stranger,
– Good stranger vs bad stranger,
– Describing people,
– What is an emergency,
– Making an emergency call,
– Keeping distance,
– Using your voice to draw attention,
– Physical releases,
