Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Course
The 16 hour NAEMT Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course is conducted over a two day period. This course provides you with the evidence based, life-saving techniques and strategies used on the battlefields today. In conjunction with PHTLS, the recognized world leader in Prehospital trauma education, the TCCC course uses the PHTLS Military textbook and meets the Department of Defense's Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) guidelines. This is the ONLY course endorsed by the American College of Surgeons.
This course is designed for combat military personal or persons deploying to austere/Hostile environments in support of combat operations. For the civilian side, TCCC can be structured and modified for security, law enforcement, tactical response teams, or medical providers supporting law enforcement.
TCCC has three primary goals:
- 1. Treat the casualty
- 2. Prevent additional casualties
- 3. Complete the mission
These three primary goals are the basis of providing high-quality trauma care in austere/hostile environments. These goals allow the first responder with the knowledge, skills and equipment to provide high-quality, life-saving trauma care.
The overall goal of TCCC is to identify and treat casualties with preventable causes of death, and keep them alive until you can reach definitive care.
TCCC is divided into three distinct phases:
- 1. Care Under Fire
- 2. Tactical Field Care
- 3. Tactical Evacuation Care (TACEVAC)
Because there is no "time-out" in combat, we have to make split decisions. These three phases puts the medical and tactical decisions into perspective. Doing the RIGHT THING at the RIGHT TIME allows for the best possible outcome for both the casualty and the mission. 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).
