Tactical Medical Operators Course
October 18 - 22, 2010
The Northeast Alabama Law Enforcement Academy will present a Tactical Medical Operators Course. The course will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Law Enforcement Academy, Anniston, AL and will consist of five (10 - 12 hours) days of training. The five day Tactical Medical Operators Course will be conducted by Pathfinder Operations, LLC
This course will run in conjunction with an APOST Approved Basic SWAT Course. Students participating in the Tactical Medic Course will be integrated with the law enforcements officers participating in the Basic SWAT Course. Medics will provide support during the SWAT Course's scenarios to capture realistic situations and prepare the medic for integration into tactical teams.
This program addresses basic tactical concepts, movement, clearing techniques and other related topics to new tactical medical personnel. The Tactical Medic student will also receive training in the following specialty areas; Tactical Combat Casualty Care (T3C), Death in custody, Medical Threat Assessments, Extended Operations, Advanced Diagnostics, Sensory Deprivation Assessment Methodology, Medicine Across the Barricade, Officer Down/ Rescue and K9 Medicine. This program uses a combination of short PPT lectures combined with scenario based training to enhance skill development and the understanding of the tactical medical role. All scenarios were developed from real world events and instructed by staff that are and have been operators. All scenarios use non lethal training ammunition in the force on force situations.
The course starts off in classroom but moves outside quickly. We work on the basics to latter stages of operations. The course will include a live fire familiarization. Students are expected to be in good-physical condition prior to attending the course.
Students that do not demonstrate proper weapon handling skills, tactics and/or safety may be removed from the training. Live fire exercises are inherently dangerous. Safety violations will be dealt with harshly. We cannot afford to have unsafe personnel in the class. Students that do not perform to standard may receive a certificate of attendance instead of certification.
Each person attending this course is required to bring the following:
* Wrap around Eye Protection/Ear Protection (bring lots of foam hearing protection).
* Body Armor/Tactical Vest and appropriate uniform
* Soft Hat (Baseball Style), patrol cap, or jungle hat
* Serviceable pistol with 3 magazines and Holster (Duty or Tactical)
