Admissions

Over the years, eligibility for attendance to S.E.I. has expanded to encompass the enrollment of specific USG (US government) agencies, bureaus, components, and departments, otherwise known as other government entities (OGEs).

For enrollment in a STOALS class, an attendee must be a rated NREMT-P or -I of the US Department of Defense, or of another US OGE, or a US federally-recognized special tactics unit as deemed appropriate for such training by the Director of S.E.I.

Due to the specificity of S.E.I. course contents and anonymity of attending personnel, enrollment is selective and discriminate. In general:

  1. Enrollment is a STOALS class requires the attendee to be a rated NREMT-P or NREMT-I DoD, US OGE, or US federally-recognized special tactics/mission person as deemed appropriate for such training by the Director of S.E.I.
  2. The Director reviews all applications and requests for attendance and is the final deciding authority for admissions.
  3. Likewise, enrollment in an MRT, PMR, TFA, TFR, PFC, PDFO, or TLC is limited to the already-specified personnel as deemed appropriate by the Director of S.E.I.

All potential personnel and clients must be signatories to S.E.I.’s Course Enrollment/Disenrollment, Cancellation, & Arrival/Departure Policies and Release, Indemnification, and Hold-Harmless Agreement.
