Basic Tacmed course
Basic Tactical Medicine (TacMed) is a beginner-level course that includes an overview of tactical emergency combat care, environmental hazards and treatment, bleeding control, and wound dressing. During this 6-hour course, students will receive instruction and demonstration on each course topic and then be expected to perform the task under varying levels of stress.
This course exposes students to visually traumatic images and artificial blood. Portions of this training include physically demanding and emotionally challenging scenarios. No previous training or experience is required.
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.
At the end of this course, students will be expected to:
- Explain first aid work priorities in a high-threat environment
- Demonstrate the following self-aid and buddy-aid techniques:
- Proper hemorrhage control
- Proper airway control
- Techniques for wound dressing
- Techniques to prevent shock
Old clothes are recommended because of exposure to simulated blood.
