Course Number: R2 328A
Description: Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TAC-MED) Instructor Course
POST developed a 40-hour TAC-MED instructor curriculum for those wishing to instruct the Basic POST Certified 16-hour Tactical Combat Casualty Care Course. The course is designed to provide instructors with the acceptable TCCC standard of training within the State of Idaho. The student will complete the standard 16-hour basic course including a performance evaluation test out. The student will then teach back the entire block of instruction to include scenarios and performance evaluation to the Instructor Cadre.
This course is designed to prepare law enforcement professionals for medical situations requiring a tactical solution. At the end of the training the student will be able to apply first aid treatment within the principles of TCCC and save preventable deaths without causing further causalities to team members. Given a tactical mission, the student will be able to assess and recognize a life-threatening injury, provide effective treatment and extricate the casualty from a hostile fire scenario while maintaining cover and effectively utilizing tactical movement strategies.
The instructor cadre is a mix of law enforcement and military professionals that are skilled in the practical application of Tactical Combat Casualty Care . This is an extremely hands on, performance-based block of instruction that is very physically demanding. Participants will be required to lift, drag and carry personnel throughout the entire block of training. Participants will also be placing tourniquets on self and others utilizing proper application techniques.
Participants must test-out via a performance evaluation and also conduct several teach backs to successfully complete this block of instruction.
