You probably already know that NRA Outdoors offers a wide variety of shooting schools and hunting adventures suitable for every skill level...but did you know that they can also teach you how to save a life? In 2017, NRA Outdoors is offering four separate "Emergency Casualty Care" courses, taught by experienced SOCOM Combat Medics, with the aim of training you how to handle the most common traumatic injuries and medical emergencies. Not only will you gain skills to last you a lifetime—as well as potentially someone else's—you'll also walk away with a world-class modular trauma kit (MTK) and First Care Provider Certification.

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.

The dates offered for the Emergency Casualty Care course are:
May 06 - May 07, 2017    
June 24 - June 25, 2017    
September 16 - September 17, 2017    
November 11 - November 12, 2017
