Online TECC and TCCC training
Dr. Mike Shertz has taught his popular Tactical Casualty Care course (formerly tactical first aid) for the past dozen years to sold-out classes in Washington and Oregon, based on best practices for TECC and TCCC. On the heels of the White House Stop the Bleed campaign, we decided more people needed training to stop massive hemorrhage and save lives, regardless of where they lived or what their schedule was like. Since then, Mike taught his entire course on a soundstage in Portland, Oregon.
Now, online Tactical Casualty Care training is available. Wherever you are, whenever you have time.
Dr. Shertz taught this online tactical casualty care training course as faithfully to his well researched, science-based in-person trainings as possible. His humor, such that it is, and colorful stories remain. What also remains are photographs of actual injuries, diagrams of wounds, and material presented in an easy to understand, directly applicable way.
With the release of the TC2, you’ll learn the realities of what gunshot wounds do to bodies; learn to apply a simple mnemonic to dealing with casualties in a high-risk environment; and then watch as theatrically filmed scenarios put the skills together. You’ll see applied skills stations where you’ll be walked through each step: hemorrhage control with direct pressure, bandaging, tourniquet skills, and simple wound packing, as well as moving casualties.
For those everyday citizens, law enforcement, Fire, EMS, and military combatants and medics, who want more online tactical casualty care training, the Advanced Tactical Casualty Care was released in Fall 2018. The AdvancedTC2 course expands the information into both more detail, and the Tactical Field Care or Indirect Threat phase of the event. This course teaches some skills your state may characterize as paramedic level but does not require prior medical training. Similarly, the Complete Tactical Casualty Care course contains 21 hours worth of material, and is for more advanced providers, including surgical airways and more. . . The Complete course meets and exceeds the TECC and TCCC guidelines for medical providers.
