Situational awareness classes
 
Does anyone know of a place or website that provides courses for situational awareness? I thought I was pretty good at watching my surroundings, but found out tonight I am far from aware.

If you don't want to talk about it I wont ask but how did you find out that you are lacking?

Me and my wife are getting our taxes done and we have our 19 month daughter with us. I took her outside for a bit as she was getting restless. We were outside for 5 minutes or so, and we went back in less than a minute after I went inside my wifes car alarm went off I get her keys go outside and the window in her car is smashed and a 80s white ford ranger is driving off, I give chase but never get close enough. So the things that scare me are 1. There was 5 cars in the parking lot, and extremely low traffic. 2. The parking lot makes a U shape around the building with both legs tying into the street, and a single row of stalls on each side of the building. 3. The SOB had to be watching me and my daughter, waiting for us to leave, or return inside, because there wasnt enough time for him and his buddy to drive around the building, see the diaper bag, smash and grab. 4. If I would have ran to the door instead of grabbing the keys from my wife, I would have met him at her car. 5. All in all I felt VERY unprepared for that situation.
