A great course to compliment a full day's training by adding Countering the Mass Shooter Threat class. Both classes can be completed in one day.
This class provides lifesaving skills for yourself, your family, and your community. Learn how to provide that critical GAP care from the moment of an incident until emergency medical services (EMS) arrive.
In this course, written by USCCA Chief Instructor (and certified firefighter and EMT) Michael Martin, we will explain the proper way to access a patient, the proper way to deal with significant issues such as serious bleeding, chest injuries, a compromised airway, spinal injuries, broken bones, and more. While it might seem unrealistic to translate what professional EMTs and paramedics are able to do in an emergency versus the things that non-professionals would be capable of, but in life threatening medical and traumatic emergencies, it all boils down to the same thing... sustaining the life of the patient until he or she can be delivered to the emergency room.
This course also includes a copy of the book: Emergency First Aid Fundamentals by Micheal Martin - a $30 value.
You will be provided with a 'USCCA Proof of Training Certificate' upon successful completion of this course.
