  • Level II: Medical

    The tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, illustrates the critical need to provide life-saving medical and mass casualty training to our law enforcement first responders. The ALERRT Level II Course not only addresses the need to immediately stop the active shooter threat, but focuses on the immediate, life-saving medical aid which police officers can provide before EMS arrives and/or when EMS systems are overwhelmed.

     

I was really excited about taking the course. I hope to take what I gained back to my department. I feel that every patrol officer should have some base for medical applications.Student in Texas (Level II Course)

Having multiple instructors from different states/areas allowed for learning multiple ways and ideas to accomplish the same objective. Instructors were knowledgeable but not "know it all's." The instructors learning the student's names was a great point.Student in Wyoming (Level I Course)

Great training that should be required of all police departments in the State of Texas.Student in Texas (Level I Course)

This class was a very good eye opener and was very well done. I learned a lot and had alot of fun while doing it.Student in Texas (Breaching Course)

I have been to other medical classes on self aid/buddy aid, but this one made me think of how to actually apply it during the scenarios. Excellent class!!Student in Texas (Level II Course)
