Any Idea as to when the next one will be?

We will need 15 students signed up for this class to happen. This is a new class compared to our old one that was previously given.

What are the credentials of the instructor(s) for this class and does this class provide participants with certs for First aid, CPR and other certs for completing the course?

I will let the lead instructor speak to the certifications coming from the class, but I doubt it will get you the AHA CPR / AED card as that is a separate class that they require.

Lead Instructor's credentials are many years as a Navy Corpsman with Force Recon Marines with multiple combat deployments under his belt. He also continues to train deploying units, SWAT, and other organizations.

Thank you for your inquiry. Our instructors for this course will be 2 special operations medics with multiple combat tours. Carlos is a former Corpsman who served as part of the Marine Recon Community and is a current Emergency Medicine PA. Adam is a former 18D(Army Special Force medic/green Beret). Assisting in the course will be Lance D. A former MARSOC sniper and TCCC instructor. For more info on our cadre please feel free to visit: www.specopsts.com/about-us
The class will not provide any certifications for civilians(due to the nature of the techniques that are taught it is a "informational use only" course) but can provide CMEs for current military medical personnel.

Wow I didn't know something like this in our area existed! Is this looking like a go, because I'd have to take off work for it (which isn't easy) and I'd be bummed if it got cancelled?

Already had to cancel it due to lack of sign-ups. Hoping to reschedule again for later on this year.
