When an emergency medical situation happens, are you trained and prepared to save your own life or others?
If you live and work in modern America, an ambulance and professional medical care is likely anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes away, possibly further. For those who go to or live outside established areas, whether in or outside the U.S., in-depth medical help may be hours or days away.
Those minutes or hours count.
Medically speaking, seconds count.
Life can end quickly waiting for an ambulance or other treatment.
Can you handle major injuries until professional medical treatment arrives? Do you too see the need to learn how to apply self-aid or medical aid to others when life may depend on your ability to apply that immediate aid?
Is your life and the lives of those you love worth your time and effort to invest in a day of medical training that will last you for the rest of your life and may even save your life?
For those attending, we look forward to meeting you and helping you medically prepare for the unexpected moment life sometimes forces on us. It is our sincere hope these skill are never needed…but just in case, we are committed to pass on life-saving information so you can help others live.

Testimonials
“Here it is, my testimony. It started as thanks to you and (instructor name redacted for privacy purposes)  and other helpers but it turned into a testimony. Please, feel free to change wording, phrasing, whatever you feel like, so it will get my thoughts through better that I could express. English language is not my strong subject plus I have very limited vocabulary, so, help me out a little bit. I am not sure if I can mention (name redacted) in this…. I would like to. You, guys, are simply amazing people. You do your work with such a passion it is incredible. I think you are the most amazing people I met in my life. Having been through such stuff that most of the people cannot even imagine but you held on to your soul, to your heart, to your sanity and not only did not break but became strong example of courage and strength for all of us. It is also incredible how you could understand us – simple, regular people – and how you could teach us on our level. You are the true heroes and thank you very much for your service!

Thank you so much for all the work you did with us for the last three days. It was a truly amazing experience and it really changed the game of life for me (can I say so?). Besides legalities, which are important, no questions, I learnt about responsible handling, carrying and using the gun to defend lives. I not only learnt to shoot in different situations and conditions but I also really got inspired to do everything in my power to get myself fit, strong and smart so I can be “natural” and intuitive in using this deadly force (only) when needed instead of freezing and not being able to move which I know I have tendency to do. And, as you said, that ability comes from understanding – on the core level – the foundation of all aspects that are involved in defending life using a handgun – mental, psychological, emotional preparedness, awareness, etc.
Absolutely wonderful class, extremely professional and responsible trainers. I felt very safe all the time. Considering how much shooting was going on on the range it felt almost unreal how just 2-3 people (professional, experienced in real life situations instructors) could hold stable safety all the time. It is imperative (crucial) for any person who is intended to carry a gun or is going to carry a gun to go through this course. We all (people) will be more safe, more responsible, more aware, and more alive. I want to repeat – if you carry a gun you are responsible to learn how to properly use it. Otherwise you or somebody around you can get seriously hurt if not worse. Negligence is unforgivable in this matter. Negligence kills people. But knowledge and ability to use it goes a long-long way and we all can be much safer as a society. I feel this course has to be a mandatory for anybody carrying a gun.
So, thank you, guys! Thank you, Adam! Thank you! I will be coming back for sure! And I will tell everybody I know, who has a gun, about you.”
