The time to learn to use your personal trauma kit 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. Dark Angel Medical, LLC, is proud to offer training and instruction in the use of the D.A.R.K. The Direct Action Response Training** 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. A manual and all training aids will be provided. A D.A.R.K. (Direct Action Response Kit) may also be provided to each student as part of the tuition. 



The course covers the following:

  • Physiological and Psychological reactions to environmental stress
  • The importance of having the proper Combat Mindset
  • Basic Anatomy and Physiology of life-sustaining systems
  • H, A, B, C’s—Hemorrhage, Airway, Breathing and Circulation

  • Proper use of cover and cover vs. concealment
  • Casualty recovery in an Active Shooter situation

Importance of the course

I was very impressed with the training I received in this course in Clovis N.M. . I was curious on what new I could learn to help make me better at my job. As a Physician Assistant for over 25 years who started out as a corpsman I knew that the treatments in the field would make a big difference in the outcome at the hospital but was amazed at how it had changed over the years. This course opened my eyes to how important this training was in saving lives which might even be mine one day. I advise all my family and friends as well as colleagues to take this course and have the equipment on hand at all times because you never know when you will need it. You can't put a price on a life and the course was worth every penny I spent. I plan on taking the course in the future to keep my skills up because you never know who's life may depend on it.

Training That's Worth It

Fantastic course this past weekend in Clovis, NM. Mike did a great job instructing and I can walk away feeling confident that I learned more than I did in 17 years of any training I received in the military. Hell, this should be standard training instead of SABC. Thanks for providing this course.
