For those of you that have inquired, my company will be offering our Traumatic Injury Management 1 course on March 22nd, 2016 at 1900 hours. This course is designed to give the student a primer in trauma medicine, and get hands on with a variety of the types of tourniquets, trauma bandages, and bleeding control agents so that they can make an educated decision on what they would prefer to carry for their personal medical kits.
We are also pleased to announce that Traumatic Injury Management 2 (TIM2) has been released. This course picks up where TIM1 left off and starts with a quick review of the major concepts, and goes right into all hands on, scenario driven learning so students can shake out their kits, adapt what they are carrying in order to cover most possible emergencies and also learn techniques to "MacGyver" their way through an emergency should you find yourself in a non-permissive environment. The first public offering of TIM 2 will be on March 24th, at 1900 hours. TIM1 is a prerequisite for attendance.
It will be announced tomorrow on our facebook page, but sworn LEO's will receive a 50% discount on tuition to TIM1. I have a lot of family and close friends that are LEOs and I want to do everything I can to make sure they get home to their families and loved ones at the end of their tour.
Please visit www.alphaomegatrainingsolutions.com for registration purposes. If you have questions, please let me know. There are several forum members that have attended TIM1 if you have any questions regarding the overall course, I know I prefer recommendations before I shell out my money to someone that I'm not sure of.
To knock 2.5 weeks off the wait its well worth it. Also, the detective that took my application today also processed my BG check a couple weeks ago when I changed my address on my FPID card, said he can re-use it since it was recent enough. Maybe I'll get lucky and get it more quickly than anticipated.
