High Risk First Responder | TCCC Certification

Online theory + in-person hands on and skills training!


“This Tactical medicine course is by far the best I have seen in my 15 years of service in the SEAL teams. The final exercise is as realistic and stressful as I’ve seen in a training environment. They not only hit the wickets for the cert but also provide some unparalleled realistic training scenarios utilizing Hollywood makeup artists and the most knowledgeable instructors in the business”
