Intended for anyone who wants to be capable of treating life threatening injuries, this 8 hour class is ideal for hunters, backcountry travelers, law enforcement officers and concealed carry practitioners. Bases on the lifesaving methods of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), students will be taught to respond to injuries that are immediately life threatening. The class format will be a mix of lecture and hands on practice in a classroom setting. No prior training is required, but Basic First Aid and CPR are recommended.

 I would *love* to take this class - are there going to be any offered on weekends?  It's a bit of a drive from Seattle.

The date for this class was choosen, because that Thursday is the day before a couple of back to back classes I am hosting with Larry Vickers. Before you ask those are full and waitlisted. At this point this is the only one scheduled and is a test case. Both to see how it goes and for Joe to see if it is something he wants to continue doing. If it is and is then others will be scheduled with locations to be determined since Joe is commuting to Afghanistan for work right now.

I would love to take this class also but its going to have to be a weekend for my buddy to make it. Still might come down but it would be nice for my friend to have the training also in case my butt is in trouble. I pass out when I see lots of my own blood, so I am not likely to be able to perform first aid on myself.

 Like Scot said, the initial class will serve as the descision maker for any subsequent classes. However, I enjoy teaching and life saving is something I believe everyone should be exposed to.  Whether we decide to host more formal classes in the future or not, I wouldnt turn someone down if they wanted some education on the matter. 

I am out of the country for the most part until the fall. After that I should be around full time and weekends would be available.

 Awesome. I'm looking forward to it.  

 

I won't bitch about my 20 mile commute for awhile.  At least it's not Afghanistan.

I'm in for a weekend in the fall. Driving down from British Columbia would be a bit of a challenge for a weekday course. I can make a weekend work.
