The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield.
NAEMT conducts TCCC courses under the auspices of its PHTLS program, the recognized world leader in pre-hospital trauma education.
NAEMT’s TCCC courses use the PHTLS Military textbook and are fully compliant with the Department of Defense’s Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) guidelines. It is the only TCCC course endorsed by the American College of Surgeons.
The course is designed for combat EMS/military personnel, including medics, corpsmen, and para-rescue personnel deploying in support of combat operations. The course's content and structure also can be modified for law enforcement special weapons and tactics and special response teams. NAEMT also offers a tactical version of the TCCC course for tactical emergency casualty care.
PHTLS combines the expertise of world-class trauma surgeons, emergency physicians, paramedics and EMS educators. NAEMT's TCCC courses are taught by a global network of experienced instructors fully trained in both PHTLS and TCCC. NAEMT maintains a strict quality control program for its instructors. To support course sites, instructors and students, NAEMT maintains a network of TCCC regional coordinators both in the U.S. and internationally, and staff at its Headquarters Office. Course administration is streamlined and cost-effective.
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).
Second Alarmer's experienced instructors are all seasoned area EMS providers. SARS programs are structured to cover core program content in a manner that allows students to apply the concepts and practices learned to all types of incidents from routine emergency calls, through active shooter and mass trauma incidents. Classroom time is augmented by several "field training exercises" conducted using Abington Townships state of the art multi-million dollar training grounds including a cold-smoke house, firearms range, and vehicle pad.
