The NRA Refuse To Be A Victim® Course was developed in 1993 by the women of the National Rifle Association of America in response to women nationwide who requested crime prevention and personal safety information.  It has since grown into a program for men and women, as many of the subjects are relevant to both.

The seminar includes classroom instruction on a variety of crime prevention strategies, from criminal psychology to automobile crimes to cyber crime. The course provides information about common weaknesses that criminals may take advantage of; and teaches a variety of corrective measures that are practical, inexpensive, and easy to follow.  Strategies include home security, carjack avoidance techniques, cyber safety, and use of personal safety devices.  (Note: This is not a firearms instruction course, nor does it include instruction in physical combat self-defense.)
