Tactical Trauma Care Course
This course was created by a Special Operations Combat Medic and a former “Greenside” Navy Corpsman, now NYC Paramedic. It will teach basic trauma management using the M.A.R.C.H. Protocol, which is different than standard EMS. All within a tactical setting, some of the topics will cover the management of:
  • Massive bleeding
  • Airway
  • Respiration
  • Circulation
  • Hypothermia
  • Patient stabilization
This is a 8-hour, hands-on course, and every student will be given a practical exercise at the end of the course.

HME Operational Level Course
This course is designed for the operational first responder…the first there. In addition to the information provided in the awareness course, students will be safely exposed to real improvised explosive formulations, including several peroxide based mixtures such was TATP, which was used in the recent Paris attacks. Students will witness first-hand, the sensitivity and destructive power of improvised explosives, how to safely oper ate (if necessary) while improvised mixtures are present, methods of desensitization, as well as a live range demonstration. There is absolutely no alternative for this real- world based training. If you want to be operating at your optimal level and be ready to deal with the threat of improvised explosives and improvised explosive labs, you need to attend this course.
