Self Defense is not just about carrying a gun and the time to try and learn personal skills is NOT when you or someone else is bleeding out!!! When life expectancy is measured in seconds and help is minutes away, will you know what to do? In our uncertain lives, that is a question that we all need to be able to answer a resounding, “Yes!” to.

Direct Action Response Training (D.A.R.T.) fills a niche between military self-aid/buddy care training and civilian EMS training and is geared towards those with little to no medical training or background. It provides the student with critical, need-to-know information, which can be utilized in a myriad of situations and stresses the ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ principle as well as our own principle of “Simplicity Under Stress”.

The course is 2 days in length with a total of 16 hours of classroom work to include slide presentations, videos, question and answer sessions and hands-on practical skills application.

D.A.R.T. is approved for 16 hours of continuing education units for Nationally Registered EMT's and Paramedics. Course number will be printed on certificates. If you require these hours, please enter your National Registry number and certification expiration date in the "Order Notes" section during checkout so that credit will be received.

Mike taught an excellent DART class and has a great personality. There is one suggestion for prospective students; buy a training tourniquet (blue) at the same time that you buy a medical kit from Dark Angel. Your own training TQ is helpful in class, and a training TQ is needed for at home practice, anyway. You may as well buy the training TQ at the same time you buy the medical kit. IMHO, the CAT TQ was easier for me to use, but Mike shows us how to use a variety of TQs.
