This course is for anyone who is a first responder or someone that wants to learn how to react in a stressful traumatic incident. The class starts with two days of in-depth training in the various first-aid treatments that law enforcement and EMS personnel may have to use on the road. With the trend in society for more and more violence towards first responders, there is a need to be trained and equipped to handle basic first aid.
From minor wounds and injuries to gunshot, care under fire, and major trauma cases, this course provides training in how the responder can assist others or themselves. This course offers a 2, 3, or 5 day course depending on what requirements you or your department needs.
The 2 and 3 day courses are for basic (non-paramedic) first responders and the 5 day course is a much more detailed and in-depth class. TCLEOSE hours are awarded for all of the class time that a student completes. Once successful completion of this course, the first responders can return to their department and pass on some of the pearls of wisdom gained in this course.
Equipment for the class is provided, however you may bring what equipment you have to be used in class. Wear comfortable clothing and on practical skills day, make sure the clothing can get dirty and stained (because it will).
