Tactical Combat Casualty Care

The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course is the military counterpart to the Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) Course.  It is designed for military medics, corpsmen, and pararescuemen who are preparing to deploy in support of combat operations.

Casualty care in the battlefield must be the best possible combination of good medicine and good small-unit tactics. The specifics of casualty care in the tactical setting will depend on the tactical situation, the injuries sustained by the casualty, the knowledge and skills of the first responder, and the medical equipment at hand.


This two day, 16-hour class breaks down the fundamental of Tactical Care that can be implemented whenever there is a need for good medicine in austere environments. TCCC can be adapted to train medical providers and law enforcement to work together in tactical scenarios and hostile environments on the homefront. This course is through the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and is the only TCCC course endorsed by the American College of Surgeons which is fully compliant with the Department of Defense’s Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) guidelines.
