Tier-1 Advanced Combat Medic Course is designed at the medic level. The curriculum is based from the skills of USSOCOM Tactical Combat Casualty Care course (TCCC), the application of current medical treatments and equipment, lessons learned from recent and current conflicts, medical skills essential for today's combat medic IAW those taught at the Special Forces Medical Sergeant's Course , and is complimented with the inclusion of Combat Trauma Training (CTT).

A review of TCCC and the skills therein is the prelude to more advanced training in areas essential to the combat medic. More in-depth training is addressed for treatment and management of blast and burn patients, traumatic brain injury patients, pain management, advanced airway management, fluid therapy, suturing and wound care, musculoskeletal problems, regional/general anesthesia, dental emergencies, sports medicine, advanced parenteral techniques, field expedient techniques, amputation procedures, medical planning, mass casualty management and more.

Extensive hands-on is the key to mastering skills and our course and teaching techniques provides both. Application of certain skills is achieved through the partner method and is further enhanced with the inclusion of two iterations (two patients) of CTT. CTT provides the training that allows the student to perfect the skills, leave with the confidence necessary to manage any trauma patient and train others, and manage a mass casualty situation. At the conclusion of training, the student will have demonstrated mastery and understanding of all of the course content. A course completion certificate will be issued to acknowledge the TCCC training.
