Tactical Medicine Training Course
Advanced Tactical Medicine (TacMed) is a 7-hour course designed to extend the students’ knowledge beyond the bleeding control techniques taught in Tac Med Basic. In this advanced class, students will receive the skills necessary to assess and treat severe blunt trauma, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, as well as life-threatening medical and environmental emergencies.
- Assessing for potential head injuries
- C-spine immobilization and helmet removal
- Wound care (steri-strips, glue, suturing)
- Splinting and immobilizing using the SAM Splint
- Recognizing life threatening medical and environmental emergencies
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 a 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.

If this happens, all students will receive a full refund or credit applied to another class.
