Why only 100 Trainers?

Seconds4Survival is the most important training we have ever seen and teaching it correctly could literally mean the difference between life and death.  SAFETAC Training will certify 100 instructors in Seconds4Survival in 2018 and 2019.  Although the demand for this curriculum is extremely high, we are limiting the graduates because we have a responsibility to ensure that we can provide all of the mentorship and “backup” that may be needed in the months that will follow the 3 day training course.  Our online portal is designed to be interactive where we can personally help each graduate as they develop their training for their agency.
