I have attended several classes from the XSA LLC package of Tactical and Emergency medicine. I cannot recommend Chris’ programs enough. This goes beyond the personal endorsement of quality, since those courses I have unfortunately had the occasion to employ my skills in both the civilian world as well as in my role as an on the ground security provider in hostile environments.
During high stress, fatal incidents, I have successfully and professionally employed my skills. My work has taken me to some of the most dangerous conflict zones on earth and my confidence has been measurably increased holding the skill sets I learned from XSA. Numerous clients have received abridged emergency medicine training (based on the XSA curriculum) during their Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT Course), and a number of these clients have in turn reported that these skills both gave them confidence and came in handy in critical moments.
It doesn’t matter if you are a law enforcement officer, security provider, first responder, or civilian, you NEED to take an XSA course if you are serious about personal or group safety. When the rubber meets the road, this training holds up.
