Our Classes & Online Courses

One of the biggest mistakes people make is getting instruction in the Law second-hand from someone who may not know themselves.

If you trust your life or the lives of your Family to your skills; you have a moral obligation to obtain competent instruction. It could genuinely mean the difference between walking away or not. If you would get educated before scuba diving or parachuting, both life-threatening activities; then you have no reason not to get the same level of instruction for self-defense.

Countering the Mass Shooter Threat e-Learning

In this online training “Countering the Mass Shooter Threat,” author Michael Martin analyzes data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine to determine what can be learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm, would have changed the outcome.

 

Martin also looks at whether “gun-free” zones impact the planning of these mass murderers, whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference and whether “universal background checks” or other proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings.
Martin summarizes this data with a comprehensive plan designed to eliminate the scourge of these shooters once and for all.

Emergency First Aid Fundamentals e-Learning

Would you know what to do if you were deep in the wilderness and a hunting companion sustained a penetrating chest wound from an errant round? Could you prolong the life of a loved one long enough for the ambulance to arrive, if he or she had sustained a lacerated artery from a violent attacker armed with a knife?

While most Americans are comfortable dealing with the cuts and scrapes of everyday life, and tens of thousands have learned the Heimlich maneuver and CPR, most individuals would be a bit less comfortable dealing with severe, life-threatening injuries or illnesses when seconds count and EMS personnel and the emergency room are minutes (or longer) away.

In this online course, author (and certified firefighter and EMT) Michael Martin not only explains the proper way to access a patient, but also covers in great detail the proper way to deal with significant issues like serious bleeding, chest injuries, a compromised airway, spinal injuries, broken bones and more.

It might seem unrealistic to compare what professional EMTs and paramedics are able to do with the things that non-professionals would be capable of, but in life threatening medical and trauma situations it all boils down to the same thing — sustaining the life of the patient until he or she can be delivered to the emergency room.
