We offer our Tactical Emergency Casualty Care curriculum to professional first responders of any level, from law enforcement officers with minimal medical training through the highest levels of prehospital care provider.
The two day curriculum first introduces concepts in short lecture format, proceeds through practical application skill stations, and finally challenges students to apply these skills in high fidelity simulations designed to innoculate the student against increasing amounts of stress.
SpecMed TECC differs from more widely available trauma classes in its focus on high fidelity simulation and its application of tactical principles to every conceivable scenario, from law enforcement special operations incidents through situations that might be considered conventional or even routine.
Topics addressed include:
- Patient movement
- Hemorrhage control
- Patient assessment
- Phases of care
- Airway management
- Respiratory support
- Rescue task force concepts
- Tactical movement
- Mass casualty triage
- Casualty collection points
It is suggested but by no means required that EMS professionals have taken a Prehospital Trauma Life Support course prior to TECC.
It is expected and required that students have reviewed the current TECC guidelines relevant to their level of care prior to attending class.
TECC awards 16 hours CME (12 trauma and 6 operational) upon successful completion.
