Direct Action Response Training (D.A.R.T.) 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 a total of 16 hours of classroom work to include slide presentations, videos, question and answer sessions and hands-on practical skills application.
