Doc Stohner is the quite possibly the top ELS man offering ELS training to civilians in the America today.
I grew up on a farm, working around large animal and heavy machinery, ever conscious of where the first aide kit was. As a young adult I was an expert swimmer who became a certified life guard. As an adult I maintained CPR AED and first aide certifications for my professional career. I never realized how much more prepared I was capable of becoming until I attended the XSA Emergency Life Saver course.
Life saving emergency medicine is a process and technique that you are in fact capable of executing in order to save the life of yourself or a family member, if only you know how. Having a medical kit and hap-hazardly seeing what you can do with its contents when the chips are down simply WILL NOT tow the line. Knowing how to asses the casualty and situation, the procedures necessary and being capable of executing those procedures under duress is the ONLY THING that will.
If you are looking to up your emergency medicine game, make confident sense of all the gear you have stowed in your IFAK and make ready to respond in a highly effective manner when the medical need arises; any moment spend considering taking an emergency medicine course is a moment wasted. You need to take this course, today!
The knowledge and confidence I gained in taking the XSA International ELS (Emergency Life Saver) course taught me to keep a level head and to prevail. No other life skill is so essential as being able to maintain the life of a loved one in need of emergency medical attention. I cannot recommend this course more, as a man, as a husband, as a brother and as a professional.
