About Us

Recently, the State of Ohio modified the Ohio Administrative Code that defines the exercises that schools must conduct. Schools (not districts) will be required to conduct a tabletop, functional, or full scale exercise over a three year period. You can count on ARMADA to help your school navigate these various requirements. For the benefit of our school clients, please take a few minutes to review the new OAC for School Preparedness PDF

Most Protection Specialists understand that the cornerstone of an effective Executive Protection Program is the Security Assessment (AKA – The Advance).

Training Courses

This course provides skills and training related to dynamic active threat response. The curriculum is geared towards individuals and law enforcement/military professionals that want to learn how to establish and implement a hasty plan to effectively respond to a variety of dynamic active threat scenarios. ARMADA’s shoot house will be converted to replicate a home, store, school, office building, etc. The instructor team developed a variety of scenarios for individuals and “hasty teams” of responders to respond to and test your abilities to effectively neutralize active threats. Years of basic range training won't give you the tools and insights that this day of tactical problem solving will. We use Simunitions® fired safely from real guns for the most realistic and adrenaline charged training experience possible.

Our going Beyond the Basics course addresses methods of and the techniques for carrying a concealed handgun. We’ll take a look at your life style and discuss the most appropriate carry method that will enable you to go about your daily routine in a confident, comfortable, and secure manner. The basic skill sets of safety, drawing, reloading, and movement will be covered along with unconventional positions and close contact engagements. All shooting done throughout the course will be from concealment. You have taken the first step toward your personal protection by getting a concealed carry permit; now take the second step by receiving the training that will allow you to be a responsible and prepared citizen.

This course provides students an opportunity to build confidence, reduce fear and gain awareness as it relates to every day safety and security. The course is primarily a mind-setting, planning, prevention and preparedness course. The course does include some basic self-defense tactics and practical application; however, the course is NOT a comprehensive self-defensive tactics course.

This course is designed for business owners, members of leadership from businesses/schools/universities, human resource staff, legal counsel representatives, safety personnel as well as security professionals. This course provides attendees an overview of everyday safety, security and preparedness practices to consider while at the workplace.

Information Management Issues in an EOC

During any activation, the most critical function performedat an EOC is information management. Planning, coordinating, requestingresources, documenting operations, keeping decision makers informed and otheractivities all rely on an accurate understanding of the situation, and thatunderstanding can only be achieved if the right information is collected,analyzed, and understood.


Cincinnati Metro

Having not exercised our security plan for many years, there was great hesitation from our organization as we started this process. I can tell you that the professional service that we received from Armada, in particular from Lee Foster was the success of our mission. 

Mr.Foster was able to custom tailor a scenario that challenged our organization without disrupting our day to day operations, and provided us with solid feedback to improve upon as we look ahead. 

We will certainly use Armada again in the future, and I would highly recommend any initiative that Lee Foster is involved in.
