Combat medicine skills used and taught by special forces medics around the world in some of the most austere enviroments. As some of the most elite medics on the globe and a true understanding of the CUF (care under fire) mindset to treat life threatening injuries under extreme conditions, utilizing modern and improvised techniques performed in austere environments.

The course will cover the basics of combat related self aid and buddy care in a lowlight environment. The principles of this course are based on the military and special forces medicine in uncontrolled and austere environments. The number one treatable injury of combat deaths is exsanguination (bleeding to death). This course will be held while maintaining principles of proper protection for you and your loved ones as well as bystanders while providing life saving tactics to yourself or those in need.
The thought that a medic or other first responder will be there immediately to treat your wounds is not realistic and continues to be proven with the tragedies of active killers, train and plane wrecks, natural disasters, car wrecks and wilderness trips.
Willingness to expand your skillset in a uncomfortable training and the ability of aiding your own family, friends or others with extreme injuries. Ability to work and learn while being under duress and stress .
Old clothes you don’t mind getting cut on or dirty, bring over shirt, flashlight or headlamp, Current IFAK (individual first aid kit) if you have it or training equipment will be provided. Snacks and water.
