Several people have contacted me to let me know that they are having problems registering for the November "Shooting With Xray Vision" class and/or the "Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds" class to be held in the first week of November at Nashville.
I am at a loss to explain these problems, as some folks have registered with no difficulty at all. It may be a server-to-server communication problem, and my webmaster is looking into it.
If anyone is having difficulty using the website registration, you can mail your information (name, email address, snailmail address, telephone number, and agency, along with a check or money order for your tuition to: Tactical Anatomy Systems LLC, P.O. Box 183, Ripon, WI, 54971. I will email confirmation of receipt of your registration when I get it.
I recently conducted a TAS "Shooting With Xray Vision for Civilians" class in Saukville, WI. Attendance was sparse (something a lot of independent instructors have been noting during the current economic downturn) but a surprisingly large number of cops were in attendance. Because of the small class size, we had a very interactive time together, with plenty of Q&A and discussion around the room. We’ll be holding another one of these classes in the New Year, again in Saukville.
I am in discussions with a top-drawer trainer who works for a federal agency and is a first-rate instructor at one of our nation’s finest independent training facilities… regarding the possibility of conducting a 2-day Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds class in the Milwaukee area. If it comes together, we will be opening the class up to local LE personnel to fill a maximum class size of 25. This class is designed primarily for tactical team/SWAT operators who want to know more about how to effectively treat trauma in the tactical (hot zone) environment.
Communications: we’ve added a lot of new members to this site in the past few weeks, which is great. Unfortunately, I have not been able to notify several of you that your membership/login has been activated because your agency email addresses are spam-blocking my emails. I suggest that anyone registering with tacticalanatomy.com use a non-agency email address when they register.
