This 4-hour course provides basic first aid skills for a tactical environment in which an elevated threat level exists. It is based on the US Military's Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines which is taught to all US Service Members. Students can expect to learn concepts and lifesaving skills to render basic medical aid to a trauma casualty, which can be used in a number of situations, with plenty of time and materials for application and practice. The course is laid out to follow the US Army training approach of MARCH (Massive Hemorrhage, Airway, Respirations, Circulation and Hypothermia Prevention).
