O.A.T.S. began after E.A.G.A.L.A. declined to work with O.A.T.S. (in 2011) in this new and cutting edge approach to E.I.A.

So then O.A.T.S. approached Mr. Greg Kersten of the O.K. Corral Series. Certification was completed in 2012


O.A.T.S. thrives because of these basic concepts at it’s foundation:

  1. Continuity of care for the client exceeds the need for profit.
  2. The client is more important than the profit.
  3. The mental safety of the client is as important as physical safety.
  4. E.I.A. training must be affordable for all so that the need of the clients can be met.


O.A.T.S., while a stand alone company, is a collaborated effort between The Bell Family of Florida and Virginia, and Cowboy Church of Virginia.
