TacMed Injured Shooter & Victim Rescue course

TacMed Injured Shooter & Victim Rescue is a physically intense 6-hour, advanced level, live fire course. The focus of this course is on fighting while wounded, fighting from the ground, self care and buddy care.

Tactical Medicine classes fill the gap between combat aid and civilian EMS training.
