Trauma Management

Course Description: 

This military-led familiarization course is designed to provide law enforcement officials with an overview of hands-on tactical first-aid techniques that can be executed as a team or by individual providers. Derived from the U.S. Military's Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) and civilian Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC), this course will cover select types of physical traumas and the associated treatment of injuries seen on dispatched scenes, law enforcement officials/first responders are also taught to consider “big picture” aspects such as: direct threat care, indirect threat care, triage of patients, collection, evacuation, and communication with EMS services for improving chances of survival for casualties.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Explain the mental readiness required and mental considerations that must be taken by team leaders, team members, and individual providers when initiating, managing, and terminating emergency trauma care to include post-event considerations
  2. Describe the indicators and complications associated with penetrating trauma, burns, blasts, bleeding, shock, and environmental trauma
  3. Demonstrate the skills required to treat casualties within the scope of training
  4. Demonstrate the planning and execution of care under direct and indirect fire
  5. Establish and secure a Casualty Collection Point (CCP), and securely lift/move casualty(ies) from the trauma site to the CCP
