Advanced TC2 ONLINE
Advanced Tactical Casualty Care
This dynamic and practical course covers the evaluation and treatment of the tactical casualty during the Care Under Fire/Direct Threat and Tactical Field Care/Indirect Threat phases. This stand-alone course covers all the materials presented in the Tactical Casualty Care course and builds upon that with additional hemorrhage control skills, recognition, and management of tension pneumothorax, practical airway devices, additional demonstrated skills stations, and much more extensive example scenarios. CAPCE accredited CEH awarded upon successful completion.
This class is consistent with current Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines as well as the guidelines for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). The course also exceeds the Stop the Bleed curriculum.

You can see the teaching lecture and skills station for the Foley Catheter Wound Packing technique. This material is excerpted from the Junctional Hemorrhage and Hemostatic lecture and skills stations.

Choosing appropriate medical care for each treatment phase
Extensive practical exercises managing all types of hemorrhage, including junctional hemorrhage, effectively packing wounds, and hemostatic agents
Nasal Pharyngeal Airways and airway positioning
In-depth discussion of thoracic trauma (chest injuries), chest seals, recognition of tension pneumothorax and its decompression
Appropriate treatment of casualties with abdominal injuries and head injuries
Casualty hypothermia prevention
Detailed training and demonstrations of moving casualties efficiently
Triage of multiple casualties and setting up a Casualty Collection Point
Tactical Casualty Care concepts and their application
This course includes dynamic presentation including photos, videos, and real-life examples, and demonstrations of practical skills, and example scenarios

Exactly like training with Doc Shertz in person
I have known Doc Shertz since 2001. In nearly two decades of having received training from him, I have attended numerous courses he's taught including his five-day/44-hour in-person TCCC course. The training I just received in the on-line Advanced TC2 course is exactly like training with Doc Shertz in person. This includes everything from the way he shares various stories to his sense of humor. If one can't train with him in person, his on-line training through Crisis Medicine is the next best thing! Some things I really liked that stood out with the on-line course was the ability to skip around the various modules if needed, as well as being able to see how many minutes each module was ahead of time. The short quizzes were good too. They offered just enough of an assessment to ensure the student was awake and not just "clicking through," but not challenging at all for folks who payed attention through the course material. Overall, the video and sound production was very well done including background colors, visuals, etc. This included various camera angles and a good balance between Doc Shertz talking and the PowerPoint presentation he was going over. At no point did it ever feel like a "death by PowerPoint" type of presentation. The instructional format kept me interested the entire time. Being in a reserve component of the military, I have completed countless on-line training courses that are required. I can honestly say the on-line course I just completed through Crisis Medicine was the best on-line course I have ever done. Thank you Doc Shertz for another incredible training opportunity! Your on-line training format is remarkable and the content will definitely save lives. I will certainly recommend it to others!

The Advanced TC2 online course is very enjoyable. The presenter Dr Mike Shertz is very knowledgeable, the way the course is presented is very detailed and the skills that you learn, could save a life, in a tactical or everyday life. I will be doing the Complete TC2 in the near future.

Essential Training For Everyone
I've taken the TCC in person class, and it was incredible how much the class learned. I decided to take the Advanced TCC to add to my knowledge base. What you learn in this class will only help you aid yourself and others. Dr. Shertz will tell you what's bogus and what is medical fact. Then you'll learn to use that knowledge. Don't be an internet ninja with an IFAK you don't know how to use. Be the person who can truly help someone.
