A few words about those two takeaways are in order. First, that First Care Provider Certification is no mere piece of paper. The First Care Provider Certification is one of the only trauma care programs recognized by the Department of Homeland Security. It is also nationally recognized by the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC). Second, that MTK is no mere first-aid kit. Specially developed by SOCOM medics, the MTK is not commercially available and includes very best, proven medical equipment available.
The two-day course takes place in Paw Paw, West Virginia, about a 90-minute drive from the Dulles airport in Virginia. It covers trauma, an introduction to tourniquets and wound care, CPR, diabetic emergencies, stroke, environmental emergencies such as hypothermia and heatstroke, evacuating victims, drags and carries and more. Lunches, instruction, the MTK and the First Care Provider Certification are all covered by the $1,250 fee; lodging and travel is not included.
