Using high-stress, scenario-based training with simulated wounds and role players; students are provided with a multi-dimensional learning environment.

Thank you for presenting an excellent class.

The 3TMC course is appropriate training that should be taken by all new recruit police officers and deputy sheriffs up to the veteran SWAT officers, as it extends their law enforcement first responder/public safety first aid training to the next level to handle violent critical incidents.

3TMC truly increases officer safety and survivability. I enjoyed training with you guys and networking/exchanging information with [OTHER DEPARTMENT] Sheriff's SERT.

I have recommended the 3TMC class to other SFSD In-Service First Aid/CPR/AED Instructors
