Second in my critiques of medical coaching programs at #NRAAM2019 is Travis Corridor’s “Medical Mindset: Are You Ready?”
First in such brief seminars is verifying the teacher’s bona fides. Travis “Doc T” Corridor is an 18-Delta (particular forces medical sergeant) from fifth SFG, with over 8 years fight expertise in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That checks the field for “expertise” proper effectively.
Wasn’t a lot to be stated about first help methods and abilities, as a result of the category was, in any case, about mindset. Like Rob Wylie and Josh Bobko’s class yesterday, the main focus was on preparedness and in search of coaching. He wasn’t hawking a product or a specific coaching doctrine, and he didn’t give out any unhealthy info.
Whereas not as polished a speaker as Wylie or Bobko, he made up for it in earnestness, and his message was a legitimate one: Hope will not be a plan. It’s important to be ready to look after your self.
Travis identified the deserves of including medical parts to your EDC gear, training with it usually, and in search of legitimate coaching. His message may be boiled all the way down to this:
1. Carry EDCM gear
2. Decide good gear and comprehend it.
3. Search coaching from respected trainers.
4. Sport-plan and situation.
Like every class, there was additionally That Man (effectively, since there have been two of them, These Guys), who veered off into Wingnutville within the Q&A about how prosecutors in NY and NJ will possible accuse you of “making an attempt to complete them off” for those who render help to somebody you simply shot (yeah, strive wrapping your head round that), and a volunteer firefighter who threw down the entire “you’ll get sued for those who render care” fable. Travis shut each of them down politely, however professionally.
It was a superb class. Nothing helpful in it for me, however precisely what a citizenry that believes lifesaving ought to greatest be left to the professionals wants to listen to:
“When seconds rely, the police and EMS are solely minutes away.”
