  1. We were grateful to be able to take these courses, both instructors were not only certified but both have had and are currently proficient at the skills they brought to our classes and use them frequently. This type of training I would highly recommend to any and everyone, so that if and when you have need to assist in life saving you are an asset and not just another liability.

    1. We will try to inform everyone of future classes. But we can only publicize these classes if we are aware of them, their location, dates and time (hint).

  2. Thanks to our Oath Keepers USA Utah Chapter and Iron County Emergency Services Coordinator George Colson. Also a huge thank you to Paul Christensen and Mike Drury, OK USA National CPT Leader. And last but not least the Cedar City residents who attended and now can save a life(s) with this training.

  3. These classes should be taken by as many friends and neighbors as you know. A community with a well trained populous is a great asset in times of disaster where local first responders are being overwhelmed with causalities. Both instructors were professional with many years of experience under their belts.
