The TCCC course introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing best-practice trauma care on the battle field. TCCC has been documented to produce dramatic improvements in casualty survival in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In the past few years, NAEMT has modified the TCCC course and created Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). This course takes the material that is very relevant to caring for casualties of terrorism (explosions and gunshot wounds) and adapts that to the civilian environment with an infrastructure that would include fire departments, private ambulance companies and hospitals.
The course meets over 2 days:
January 13th and 14th (Friday, Saturday)
8:30am to 5:45pm each day
Great Lakes EMS Academy
1001 South Division Grand Rapids, MI
The cost of the course is $325.00. This will include a hard copy of the TCCC handbook. All of the equipment needed for Airsoft® and tactical medical care will be provided. Students will be “issued” an IFAK at the beginning of the course. During the course the medical supplies within the IFAK are theirs to use during the scenarios.
Students will be enrolled into the Great Lakes EMS Academy online learning management website (iTeacher) before the course. There is all kinds of information and links on this website. There is also a TCCC handbook that should be read before the course. There is a TECC pretest that must be completed before the first day of class.
