NaBITA has developed five class-leading, validated risk assessment tools. Each is for a specific purpose, and has been developed specifically for deployment in schools. The tools have been widely adopted because of their ease-of-use, precision, and accuracy. While some teams will have assessments of risk conducted by external resources, NaBITA’s five tools are designed to help teams to in-source the assessment function. Attend our certification trainings to learn how to use each tool, to know which one to use, when, and how to combine them for maximum accuracy.

Note: Dangerousness and violence from a student, faculty, or staff member is difficult, if not impossible, to accurately predict. This training topic offers research-based techniques and theories to provide a foundational understanding and improved awareness of the potential risk. The training or tool should not be seen as a guarantee or offer any assurance that violence will be prevented.

These assessment tools should be used in conjunction with further training and study. Please contact Brian Van Brunt at with any questions about the tools.
