First Aid Training

Explore our training tracks and classes. Most of our public classes are economically built for the average citizen, along with a variety of niche subjects for experienced students. We teach a lot of material in day-long classes, while providing the drills, thinking, and skills required to continue practicing after class.

Our philosophy of performance-based training, rather than objective-based, stems from the greats like Pat MacNamara. Rather than mandate a certain standard, we typically focus on making you better by the end of the day. This allows us to teach students with a variety of skill levels in the same class.
