Tactical Medicine Training Course
Advanced Tactical Medicine (TacMed) is a high-intensity course designed to extend students’ training and conditioning to deal with more complex situations. The advanced student hones their skill set in tactical medicine, recognition of life-threatening medical emergencies, management of serious sprains and fractures and care for deep cuts and lacerations. This dynamic course is physical in nature, participants are required to move casualties short distances. Advanced TacMed is held at our outdoor Tekamah Training Facility.
Participants train in:
– Use of cover
– Remote victim assessments
– Victim rescues
– Treatment in simulated direct and indirect threat environments
The TacMed course curriculum is based on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) core concepts. TECC is the civilian version of the military’s Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) – TECC was developed to bring combat level of care to civilian first responders.
All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning© (RBBC). RBBC was developed from this maxim: “the study of behavior is as important as the study of tactics.” 88 Tactical courses condition an appropriate crisis response that maximizes performance while working with, instead of against, a person’s survival-oriented instincts and intuitions.
