We are proud to be the Atlanta host for Dark Angel Medical, LLC (DAM). DAM offers training and instruction in the use of the D.A.R.K. (Direct Action Response Kit) in the 2 day (16 hours) Tactical Aid Course. This courseĀ  fills a niche between military self-aid/buddy care training and civilian EMS training and is geared towards those with little to no medical training or background. It provides the student with critical, need-to-know information that could mean the difference between life and death in between the time of injury and when EMS arrives. The information can be utilized in a myriad of situations and stresses the 'you don't know what you don't know' principle as well as the principle of "Simplicity Under Stress".

The course material is delivered via slide presentations, videos, question and answer sessions and hands-on practical skills application. As part of the tuition, each student will take home a course manual in addition to our excluzive D.A.R.K. (Direct Action Response Kit). Topics to be covered include:
