Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Applied Skills Day

Saturday, Jul 27, 2024

10:00am – 5:00pm


This course is designed to take the student through all phases of the principles and approaches of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). 

Through hands-on interactions and interventions, our instruction methods will better link your skills together, and expand them to prepare you for other injuries that you  may encounter in real-life.

As situations both locally and abroad become more intense, individuals must know how to conduct various threat assessme

nts while dealing with an injured person(s). 

In this course, we will put you “in the fight” and teach you to work through various life or death situations that require you to link the TECC skills with changing “threat” situations to prepare you for the worst.  

This is a dynamic class combining Emergency Casualty Care training with disabled/disadvantage shooting positions and evolving threat scenarios.  Here, we focus on the abrupt focus shifts that can be required in transitions from Indirect Threat Care, back into Direct Threat Care, and the rapid movement into Evacuation Care and Hand-off.

There is NO requirement for students to live fire in this class, but the opportunity is
provided for those that want to hone their under-stress response skills.

The course is open to all experienced practitioners. 

What is unique about high threat medical principles is less about what is done medically and more about when it is done – what injuries are focused on, and what can be excluded in an unstable environment.
TECC has applications for ALL high-risk operations, where there is a real and on-going
risk to both the patient and provider. Examples of high-risk operations include, but are not limited to:

  • Wilderness medicine
    · Vehicle Accidents
    · Disaster medical support
  • Law enforcement ‘officer down’ response
  • Active shooter response
    · Response to explosive mass casualty
    · All other mass casualty response

Successful students will learn how to apply life-saving trauma skills in all phases of casualty care, and how to perform rapid trauma assessments.

They must have previously completed an ACS Stop the Bleed Certification or an Introduction to TECC. 

Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) is the civilian evolution and application of the
military Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines (TCCC).

Military units that have trained all of their members in TCCC have documented the lowest incidence of preventable deaths among their casualties in the history of modern warfare. TCCC-based pre-hospital trauma training is now becoming widespread in the US civilian sector as well.

Overall, the principles of TECC are not difficult to learn – the actual medical interventions such as pressure dressings, wound packing, tourniquets, and chest seals are now commonplace for everyday trauma.

Although the word ‘tactical’ in common use implies law enforcement associated operations, every first responder utilizes ‘tactics’ on every call every day. The word tactical also refers to operational decisions that are made during response.  Every one of these operational
decisions has an effect on medical care and the competing priorities of operations and
medical care need to be considered in real time. TECC allows you to do just this.

  • Tac Pistol 1P or similar course preferred prior to enrollment.
  • Stop the Bleed Course or Our Intro to TECC course or similar is required.
