Scheduled Training & Class Details

This class isn't actually taught by Lander Defense LLC, but it is important.

At $65 it is a bargain.

Eric Hart, the instructor, is a working paramedic, military medic for the National Guard and a Certified trainer.

"The goal of the course is to teach YOU how to recognize and be able to treat life threatening bleeding. Injuries that can cause such bleeding could be gunshot or stab wounds and that is what most people think of, but that is not all, people can bleed out and die from car accidents, farming/industrial accidents and even cuts from broken glass. We want YOU to be able to save a life by controlling severe bleeding before first responders arrive!"
