2 Day Course
The National Association of EMT's (NAEMT) has designed a program for combat EMS/military personnel, including medics, corpsmen, and pararescue personnel deploying in support of combat operations. TCCC emphasizes three primary goals. 1. Treat the casualty. 2. Prevent additional casualties. 3. Complete the mission. Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield.
NAEMT's TCCC course is accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) and recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT).
3 Day Course
The Operator Initiated Care Course (OIC) builds off the NAEMT TCCC curriculum and provides realistic firsthand knowledge of life saving interventions, resulting in long term individual capability. This program is designed to reinforce operational medical theory and the non medical operator's role in casualty care within the combat environment. Participants are exposed to the TCCC phases of casualty care; the management of hemorrhagic, airway, respiratory, blast, ballistics, burns and other combat injuries. The course includes a single day laboratory which progresses through a variety of challenging scenarios and problem solving situations where immediate care skill-sets are emphasized providing competency and confidence for participants.
