CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When you look at the causes of death from traumatic injury, the number one fatality is blood loss. If you can stop the bleeding, the chances of survival skyrocket, and Aegis Academy enables you to do just that!
Spend the day working with combat experienced military special operations medics, learning exactly what works and what does not work when it comes to managing trauma. This course is based on the advances made by the U. S. military in managing trauma in combat zones over the past 15 years, and is now available to the public.
"When you look at the advances made in managing trauma in the last decade, it's light years ahead of where we were in the '90s. The fact that these life saving skills are just now starting to filter back from the battlefield to first responders in our homeland is inadequate. Every American citizen should have access to the experience and training to use cutting edge techniques and equipment to save their own and potentially that of another human being," said Patrick Henry, CEO of Aegis Academy.
The course has been completely customized to take the relevant skills from the battlefield and apply them to the likely injuries that private citizens and travellers may be exposed to. State-of-the-art special effects, to include life-like pressure-regulated pumps, wound simulations and real life actors, will ensure you leave with the skills to confidently manage any traumatic event you may experience. Further, they provide real experience into applying these crucial skills in a safe, controlled learning environment.
Aegis Academy is sponsoring the training at its facilities in Pala CA on Saturday, October 10, 2015. You will never regret spending six hours mastering the skills that will enable you to save your own life or that of another person.
Aegis Academy builds safer communities by empowering individuals and organizations with the programs, education and skills to make realistic and responsible choices about risk mitigation and self-defense. We are exclusively staffed by former members of the government's elite intelligence, military and law enforcement units and have created open to the public programs in risk mitigation ranging from travel security to corporate espionage detection, defensive skills programs ranging from firearms to improvised weapons and protective skills from preventative Defense to trauma management. Every step you take toward increasing your personal safety and security is one step closer to the safer community we all want to live in!
