Tactical Medical (TacMed) courses are designed for military, law enforcement, fire/rescue/EMS and security professionals. Our curriculum is proven effective for medical and non-medical backgrounds and is ideal for those working either overseas or domestically in tactical environments from urban settings to austere and remote operations.
We offer several packages to train and certify personnel, using two-day, three-day, four-day and custom-length courses to create the most proficient trauma medicine practitioners on the field. Training is 80% hands-on application in the form of labs, skills stations and practical exercises. All courses cover the latest guidelines, techniques, recommended equipment and include a final training exercise in accordance with recommendations from the committees on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) and Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS).
K9 Casualty Care is a stand-alone specialty course that prepares canine handlers, teammates and owners to assess and treat canine trauma, medical emergencies and diseases. As with all our TacMed courses this program uses the most current K9 Casualty Care guidelines to give our canine partners that best chance at operational success and survival.
Our Tactical Combat Casualty Care course is designed especially for military personnel, both medical and non-medical responders.
