I retired from the military 15 years ago and would like to refresh old skills and learn about the new items available (CAT, Quick Clot, Chest seals). I would not be opposed to an all inclusive course that combined first aid, martial arts and shooting.

Thank You

I'm not a hundred percent sure I understand what you're looking for.

Dark Angel Medical the gun industry's most popular source of medical training. Unfortunately, their closest class to NW IN is Luther, MI in June or Columbus in Oct.

All of my first aid training is in the distant past and I would like to get refreshed with the new equipment and techniques.

Basic combat trauma (expensive words that equal First Aid) haven’t changed much over the years. A good American Red Cross Stop the bleeding class would go a long way, and is inside of everyone’s reach and budget.

Everyone that I have heard that has taken a class from Dark Angel has enjoyed it.

But, to me, unless it is a live tissue class, I wouldn’t pay for it due to you really not gaining anything over taking Red Cross classes.

I agree with Jones.

Take a stop the bleed class. Have your shooting training separately.

Most of the "combat first aid" classes don't offer much worthwhile beyond "stop the bleed".

If you do want more, jump right to a full on Tactical Medicine class like JTM Training offers. Something like 11 days, lots of shooting, K9 first aid, and enough medicine that they will renew a Paramedic certification, at the end of the class. Spendy, but real skills can be gained, there.

I think "stop the bleed" is what you're looking for. Also, for more diverse and practical skills, Wilderness First aid is excellent.

Let me know how the class was. I see them advertise quite a bit at that club.

If you end up still looking for training let me know that also

I see events like that pop up occasionally
mixed in with all of the pistol shooting classes every gun range offers.

I wasn’t able to get to that class but I am still looking. I think that class would have been great.

If you already have basic practical skills, then an internet refresher is probably all you need.

Something like this should do the trick.
