Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)

Duration
7, 16 & 40 Hours

Almost 90% of all combat deaths occur before the casualty reaches a medical treatment facility. The Tactical Combat Casualty Care course aims to provide students with the skills to identify and treat casualties with preventable causes of death and keep them alive long enough to reach hospital. This course is designed for those who treat trauma whilst under fire, including military medics, military personnel and specialist firearms officers.
