Tactical Lifesaver Courses

When EMS can’t be there, and SECONDS count, will you be ready?
If you are ready to be a sheepdog, and to learn lifesaving skills with real world applications, let PRIEST Tactical train you.

PRIEST offers a truly unique experience, in that our approach is simple: We will meet you at your skill level, and build you up to where you want to be. For the more seasoned individuals, we offer an advanced training program in conjunction with firearms handling and tactics. This hard charging course will have you moving through multiple scenarios and engaging multiple “threats", all while treating casualties under "hostile" conditions. For those with little to know experience in the tactical realm, we offer a basic course that lays out the foundation of tactical casualty care. You will learn all the essentials of trauma care, and familiarize yourself with the equipment and become proficient using the crawl, walk, run method. 



SECURE the scene.
CONTROL the scene.
OBSERVE and triage wounded.
RESPOND with emergency measures.
PROTECT  yourself and those around you.
IMMEDIATELY evacuate the injured.
ONGOING safety measures.
NO unnecessary loss of life.

 When that moment becomes violent or even deadly, will you know what to do?  When the dust has settled and any potential threat has been eliminated you could find yourself faced with harsh reality.  This is the moment where your knowledge or lackthereof, could mean the difference between life and death. Medical emergencies can happen anywhere and anytime, so if you want to ensure the best possible outcome, you must be ready and willing to act at a moment’s notice. This doesn't mean you should live in fear.  In fact, we promote the opposite here at PRIEST. We want you to sleep soundly at night, and walk with confidence during the day, because you know you are ready for whatever you may face.  We truly believe in what we do, and we want to help you get to that place! Do not FEAR the moment! Be READY for it!

Our one of a kind Tactical Lifesaver Course focuses on keeping yourself and those around you alive, and rendering aid in any potentially hostile or unsafe environment.  You will be introduced to cutting edge, evidence based life-saving techniques backed by the United States Military and countless medical professionals. You will learn how to provide critical, immediate care at the point of injury for casualties you may face in the aftermath of a violent event; such as public shootings (schools, malls, and theaters), bombing, hostage situations, etc. Not only that, but the medicine you learn in this course is also applicable to everyday situations you could encounter such as vehicle accidents, workplace or home injuries, and places that may be remote and far away from a medical treatment facility. What can you expect from us exactly?

  • Real world scenarios and realistic injuries that will test your skills, your stamina, and your intestinal fortitude.  Do you think you have what it takes? 
  • You will be faced with stressful, high intensity situations, and be expected to make split second decisions, remain calm, and act under duress.  
  • You will be rattled, mentally and physically, in simulated "hostile" conditions.
  • We will teach you to remain cool, even in a hot situation, while our trauma lanes will take you to the edge of your resilience. Will you give up? Or will you complete the mission and save lives?
  • You will study hard, and you will train harder...And in doing so, you will better yourself.  Because you will have learned the skills, and have the confidence you need to save lives when seconds truly count.  

So ask yourself.. When the time comes, will you stand around waiting for help?  Or will you BE that person who steps up and does what needs to be done?
