Vighter Establishes NAEMT Training Center and Gives Back to the Military
Date:3/24/2017

Vighter established its NAEMT Authorized Training Center and gave back to the military at the same time by providing Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) course scholarships to four medics assigned to the Minnesota Army National Guard. PHTLS is the world’s premier prehospital trauma education developed in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons to promote critical thinking in addressing multi-system trauma and provide the latest evidence-based treatment practices.

Rex Wiegers, Vighter’s Training Officer, served as the primary instructor for this inaugural course conducted 20 and 21 March 2017 in Winona, MN. As an authorized NAEMT training facility Vighter can now provide the following courses:

  • Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS)
  • Emergency Pediatric Care (EPC)
  • EMS Safety
  • Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services (GEMS)
  • Law Enforcement and First Response Tactical Casualty Care (LEFR-TCC)
  • Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)
  • Principles of Ethics and Personal Leadership (PEPL)
  • Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) for medical military personnel
  • Tactical Combat Casualty Care for All Combatants (TCCC-AC) for NON-medical military personnel
  • Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)

As a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) with an executive team comprised of US Army veterans, the company has a strong connection to the military. Vighter’s CEO, Dr. Jeffrey Lee commented, “The organization is proud to support the Minnesota Army National Guard and contribute to the readiness of these fine medics. Whether they are required to employ these lessons in their civilian jobs or while deployed overseas we are confident they are ready and able to manage trauma patients in a prehospital setting.”
