The U.S. Army’s combat medic school (68W) as well as the U.S. Navy's Corpsman training program have a long reputation for excellence. However, the challenge for many friendly foreign governments when going through candidate selection is the language barrier to enter these schools. This leaves many qualified candidates who would otherwise benefit from advanced U.S. military training. As such Red Stripe™ fills in this training gap by providing an equivalent course and curriculum in the host’s country’s armed forces in their own language. This often becomes the standardized combat medic course for the country. Graduates from this course can go on to become instructors.
