Essential Trauma

Emergency Tactical Medical Course with Jeff Hensley, former Special Operations Medic and Instructor. His complete bio is HERE.


This intensive course will cover how to render immediate care for gravely injured individuals in an active shooter or tactical environment, with minimal reliance on gear. Learn how to save yourself and others in real time while under duress from extreme injuries due to knives, bullets, and explosions.

Emergency calls in Seattle for physical attacks or for grievous bodily harm average SEVEN minutes (from call to arrival). We are more likely to end up as chalk outlines if we don’t know how to quickly mitigate bleeding in a bad accident… or a mass incident. I can only imagine how many kids/adults could have done something useful for their shot friends/strangers instead of watching them helplessly as they bleed out.

This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a weekend of life-saving knowledge and practical application in the classroom and in active scenarios.

Jeff’s approach is truly one of the most practical and realistic that we have seen. This training will give you the confidence and skill to do the right thing… on the worst day of your life.




From the Instructor:

You are preparing for perhaps the worst day of your life. Stress inoculation and pressure testing will be utilized during training to help you understand the realities of providing care in such circumstances. This isn’t entertainment or for bragging rights. Its to give you the confidence to SURVIVE and care for those you love.

A gunfight, criminal assault, or terrorist attack isn’t always over when the shooting stops, knife is dropped, or smoke clears. Often who lives and who dies is determined afterward. Marksmanship, weapons manipulations, combatives and tactics may NOT be the skill sets that ensure you or those you love survive. The difference could well be the medical care rendered immediately after or even during the event.

Training is useless unless it addresses the realities of the student’s daily lives. Since most of us do NOT carry a trauma kit at work, school, church or the mall, participants will not only be taught how to use tactical and/or emergency medical kit but also the principles behind them so they will be able to improvise life saving medical equipment from whatever is on hand.

The importance of the caregiver’s attitude, resilience, and determination will be stressed.
