INTERMEDIATE TACTICAL MEDICINE- (pre registry is required , Tac Med 1 or equivalent is required to attend)
For First Responder/Military/Civillian personnel and builds on Basic TacMed 1 curriculum, adding pre-hospital trauma care while under duress. The focus of the instruction is to give the student the ability to recognize, evaluate and control life-threatening injuries common to all first responders and emergency team members (students can attend with basic TM completed or equivalent) with a tactical slant. Students will be expected to provide care under fire, or responding to a mass casualty event.
It fills the gap between military combat first-aid and civilian Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Topics include: engaging a active threat, cover vs conceal, managing trauma, hemorrhage (bleeding) control, wound dressing, breathing/airway control, pediatric care, and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety while actively engaged in a gun fight, triage and evacuation.
Students experience plenty of hands-on “dry fire” practice in the field , along with role-playing demonstrations and drills. The live portion of the course focuses on fighting while wounded and shooting from multiple positions to secure the scene. The drills will include two and one-handed pistol manipulations utilizing simunition or live rounds when incorporated. Intense threat engagements and elevated casualty rescue scenarios will be incorporated.

* Perform work priorities in a high-threat environment
